Last week in Days of Our Nine Lives, the ARF cats were missing those who were recently adopted.
Bobbie: Have you guys heard what our ARF humans are doing now?
Sadie: Trying to find us forever homes?
Bobbie: Oh, they’re always doing that.
Sadie: I know. But they need to work harder in getting humans in to meet us!
George: I think they work pretty hard at that. Hopefully the Creature Corner in the Town Crier helps.
Bobbie: Yes, yes, yes! But I am talking about the Pets of the Year contest ARF is having to raise funds to get medical care for pets whose families cannot afford it.
Mr. Gray: Oh boy! So, I could be a pet of the year?
Bobbie: Sorry, no. Only pets that have forever families can enter.
Sadie: Wow. Now I’m really sad about not having my own family. I just don’t get it. I’m beautiful and I love to wind my way in and out of humans’ legs. Why am I still here?
Mr. Gray: Yeah! And I have the most beautiful gray hair and little white booties on my feet. Why am I still here?
Grace: And I’m a Russian Blue! Cats don’t get any more beautiful than I, and I’m super friendly on top of that!
Bobbie: None of this makes any sense, especially the fact that I’m still looking for a forever home. I’m over-the-top friendly!
Mr. Gray: So, if humans visit ARF’s website or Facebook page, they can see photos of us?
Bobbie: Yes, and they can learn about the contest.
Pepper: And if we get adopted by the end of this month, we may also be in the running for pet of the year. Wouldn’t that be amazing?
Pepper: Amazing, wonderful, and a dream come true.
