Last week in “Days of Our Nine Lives,” the cats discussed their finer qualities.

Bobbie:  Well, that didn’t last long.


Audrey: What didn’t last long?


Bobbie:  Not what, who.  Patrick.  He has a forever home already!

Audrey:  Wow.  That was fast.  But I hear his place in the cattery has been filled, six-times over!

Bobbie:  Yep. A mama cat and her five kittens have arrived, and this cattery is hopping!

George:  No kidding.  Those kittens play and play and play!

Pepper:  What’s the 411 on them?


Tinkerbell:  They are gems!  Mama is named Diamond, Di for short.  And the four female kittens are Amethyst (Amy), Topaz, Emerald (Emmy), and Ruby.  The little boy is Opal, but he prefers Opie.


Pepper: They are awfully cute, but so are we!  We’re just a “bigger” kind of cute.

Crue:  Cats, cats, cats!  You all seem to forget that Jet and I are still here.

Jet:  And I think Crue and I are as cute as any kitten.

Crue: But in a canine kind of way.

George:  Getting back to these new cats, what is Di like?


Jet:  She’s right there.  Why don’t you see for yourself?


Di:  Hello ARF cats!  As you can see, I’m a very small lady, but I have spunk!  I’ll be the life of any party.

Mr. Gray:  You are small!  And I think you’re pretty young.

Di: Yes, I’m not even a year old yet.

Bobbie:  What a young mama you are.

Anabel: But I can see she was a very good one.

Di:  Thanks.  I’ve done my job, and now my babies are ready to find their forever homes.


Tinkerbell:  I hope lots of humans come to ARF to meet you and your babies.

Di:  So do I.  We’re ready!
