Last week in “Days of Our Nine Lives,” the cats welcomed two new cats and two new dogs.


Bobbie: I’ll tell ya, dogs are flying outta here faster than mice at a cat convention!

Audrey: Gemma and Charlie? Where’d they go?

Bobbie: Adopted.  Boom!  Just like that.

Pepper: I watched Gemma meet her new dad. She was so happy. And Charlie will have two kids to play with. Lucky dogs.


Bobbie: Don’t worry, Pepper.  Our day is coming. Have you met the new cats, Joey and Cali?

Audrey: I have!  They’re really nice and really big! Wow! Cali is 20 pounds, and Joey is 17 pounds. Guess they’re on a



Bobbie: I heard the ARF humans saying they are going to help them get to a healthier weight. You know, some humans really like big cats. Oh, and these two are declawed!

Cali: Are you talking about me? Yeah, I’m big, but I’m loveable!


Pepper: And I have to say you’re very pretty. You’ve got great Calico markings. Oh, here’s Joey!

Joey: (creeping in) Hi! I’m Joey. Nice to meet you.

Bobbie: Wow! Joey, you look like a jumbo-sized George!


George: (running in)  Did someone call me?

Bobbie: No, but look at Joey. He’s the same beautiful orange as you.

George: Well I’ll be darned! We do look a lot alike, except for our, um, weight.

Joey: Hi, George. When I lose some weight, I bet humans will think we’re brothers!

Cali: I hope someone comes in to meet us soon. They’ll love us.

Pepper: And the rest of us, too!

Who will be the first to visit Joey and Cali?
