Last week in Days of Our Nine Lives, the ARF cats welcomed Audrey into their cattery.

George: Well, what did you think of the Super Bowl?

Sadie: Didn’t watch it.    

George: How about you, Bobbie?

Bobbie: I watched the Puppy Bowl instead.

Audrey: I watched the Kitten Bowl. How about you, George?

George: (inching toward Audrey) I watched all three, you know, flipping channels. But I would have rather watched you, Audrey.

Bobbie: Oh good grief. George, Audrey is still getting acclimated to her new home. Give her some space!

Pepper: Audrey is a little shy right now, but when she finds a human she likes, she is super snuggly.

Audrey: Well, I do like most all humans, but you’re right, Pepper. I’m shy.

Pepper: That’s to be expected, being in a new home.   

Bobbie: George, now that I’m the new office cat, I’m not around to keep an eye on you. Pepper, you make certain George gives Audrey some time to feel comfortable.

Audrey: Aw, that’s okay, Bobbie. He’s harmless.

George: That’s right. Audrey, would you like to dine with me tonight?

Pepper: George…

George: Pepper, you’re being pretty assertive now.

Pepper: Well, maybe. I’m just very comfortable here, with cats and humans.

Bobbie: As long as everything is under control here, I’m heading back out to the office. Gotta keep an eye out for visiting potential forever families.

Pepper: Please be on the lookout for mine!

George: And mine too, please.

Bobbie: I’m watching out for all of you. We all need forever homes.

  Will Audrey come out of her shell? Will Pepper be a good chaperone?
