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


Anabel: Well, that was a quiet weekend.


George: No kidding. And next weekend will be even quieter.

Bobbie: Boy, that’s the truth!

Anabel: Why do you guys say that?

Bobbie: Saturday is the ARF beer festival. You know, the event that raises the money to keep ARF’s doors open.

Tinkerbell: I’ve heard about it and that it’s a lot of fun.


Bobbie: So, we kinda hope all the humans are at the festival instead of coming here.


Tinkerbell: Will Jet and Crue go to the festival?

Bobbie: No, I don’t think so. All the ARF volunteers will be so, so busy pouring beer and taking care of the guests.

Tinkerbell:  How about us cats?

Bobbie: Heck no! That would be too stressful for us. We’ll stay here.

Anabel: I know I want to stay here. I’m much more comfortable now. I like interacting with the humans and cats!

Pepper: (Entering the cattery with two dogs). Look who has come to pay a visit!  Jet and Crue.

George:  Hi, there!

Crue: Hello, cats! I’m Crue, and this is my daughter, Jet.

George: So, you like cats?

Jet: You guys are fine. We could live with one of you, no problem.

George: Glad to hear it!

Crue: How long do you think we will be with our foster?

Tinkerbell:  Why, are you unhappy?

Crue: Heck no! We love him, but we’d like a forever home.

Jet: Maybe one together.

Bobbie: We know how you feel. We all want a forever home and a forever family.

Pepper: We all have to be patient and wait for the perfect human to come along.

Just how long can these four-leggeds be patient? Be sure to keep up with the animal antics of “Days of Our Nine Lives” each week.
