Last week in “Days of Our Nine Lives,” the ARF cats were hoping folk would take advantage of the half-price cat adoptions.


George: The half-price adoption worked last week.   

Bobbie: (Stepping in front of George) That’s right! Alice found her forever home.

George: Geez, Bobbie. I was going to tell everyone.

Bobbie: You know that’s my job, so just back off.

George: Just because you’re the office cat?  Big deal.

Bobbie: Well, it is a big deal.  Hey, look! Here comes Tinkerbell.


Tinkerbell: Hi, guys. Sorry I haven’t been out to meet you before today. Anabel and I have been taking our time, getting used to these new surroundings.

Bobbie: We hope you two are doing better. You seemed kind of scared.      

Tinkerbell: It has been scary, you know, losing our mom and being moved to a strange place.

Joey: I know how you feel. The same thing happened to Cali and me. But Cali is already in her forever home.


Tinkerbell: So Anabel and I could have a new forever home pretty soon?

Joey: Maybe, if you’re lucky.

Bobbie: Well, besides luck, you girls need to not be afraid to come out of your hiding to meet the humans. Take it from me, I know. I greet everyone in the office the moment they walk through the door.  Joey, you, too!

Joey: I know, but I’m just shy, although I really do like to be petted.

Bobbie: Tinkerbell, where is Anabel?


Tinkerbell: She’s just around the corner. Anabel is a bit shier than I am. Give her some time.

Bobbie: We will. We want all our new cats to feel comfortable, and the ARF humans are working hard to make you both feel better.   

Tinkerbell: You’re right, Bobbie. The ARF humans have been very kind to us.

Joey: To all of us!
