Last week in “Days of Our Nine Lives,” the ARF cats discussed their surprise that the kittens were still with them.
Little Girl: Everyone gather around. We need to talk about the holiday season and our futures.
Sassy: A meeting! I love meetings, especially when it involves people, dogs, cats, kids…
Anabel: I get it, Sassy. You love everyone.
Sassy: I do! And I hope I have a forever home for Thanksgiving. I just want a human lap to claim as my own.
Batman: So, what’s this meeting all about?
Zorro: Yeah. What’s up?
Little Girl: We need to figure out what we need to do to get the word out that all of us need, and deserve, forever families, and we need them to celebrate the holiday season.
Sassy: I would think if the humans made an effort to stop by and meet us, it would take care of the problem.
Indigo: Right! We have four really adorable kittens. Who doesn’t love kittens?
George: And we have cats that are perfect, and I mean perfect, for quiet homes, maybe homes with seniors. I’m one of them! And so is Little Girl, and even Sassy the dog!
Little Girl: Oh, that would be so wonderful. I’d love a home with a senior. We’d be perfect together.
Sassy: So would I! I’d love to be with a senior.
Augusta: We kittens, however, might like a little livelier household. Anabel, you’re staring off into
space. Are you OK?
Anabel: Oh! Yes. I’m just imagining a Thanksgiving in my very own home.
George: I think we all are, Anabel.
Trenton: Yeah, we all are.
Anabel: Maybe if everyone reading “Creature Corner” were to think about a senior they know who might like some company, we’d find our homes.
Trenton: That’s a great idea. Everyone spread the word!
