Last week in “Days of Our Nine Lives,” ARF cats and dogs welcomed new dog Murphy.
Mr. Gray: Little Girl, is it true we are celebrating dog adoptions?
Little Girl: It’s true! Cal and Teddy found their forever homes this last weekend. ARF humans held an adoption event at Mountain Paws.
Murphy: That’s awesome! Why wasn’t I there?
Little Girl: Murphy, you still need to visit the vet and get spayed, but you’re the next dog to find a forever family.
Mr. Gray: I notice Anabel is still gone. I guess her adoption was a success.
Little Girl: Yes, and I’m so happy for her.
Heavenly Whiskers: I think we need to focus on us cats for a while.
Little Girl: Let’s do that! I think humans need to know that many of us need to be given the chance to feel comfortable with new visitors.
Mr. Gray: That’s the bottom line. I know I am very loving once I can trust a human.
Indigo: Speak for yourself, Gray. I warm up to loving humans almost immediately.
Little Girl: And I absolutely love anyone who will give me attention. I want attention all the time, along with a home to call my own (meaning no other cats and no dogs!).
Indigo: My fellow ARF felines would be so happy to have patient, understanding human visitors.
Little Girl: So this is a shout-out to all humans! Stop by on the weekend to pay us a visit. Plan to relax in a comfy chair, put your feet up and let us get to know you.
Indigo: They will be pleasantly surprised if they just give us a chance.
Heavenly Whiskers: And have a laser light in their hands!
Mr. Gray: Ha! We would love that!
