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

Murphy: Hello, ARF cats. I’m spayed, vaccinated and ready to go to a forever home.


Little Girl:  Congratulations, Murphy. What kind of family do you hope to find?

Murphy: I’d like a family that will take me on walks and maybe even on hikes. I like other dogs, so a friend to play with would be good. I like human kids, too!

Little Girl: I bet there are lots of forever families that fit that description.

Mr. Gray: They just need to meet you.

Little Girl: Maybe you will be walked in town this weekend.

Mr. Gray

Murphy: That would be so much fun. I really like meeting humans.

Indigo: And I heard we have another dog.

Sadie: We do. Her name is Kate and she is a senior citizen.

Little Girl: That’s right. She is a very loving Springer spaniel who is 15 years old.

Kate: Are you speaking about me? I’m Kate.

Heavenly Whiskers

Pepper: Do you like dogs and cats?


Kate: I do! I’m very good with cats and dogs. I just need a family who will love me and care for me for the rest of my life.

Heavenly Whiskers: Ah, that all sounds so good. I hope someone will open his or her heart and give you a wonderful home.

Kate: Me, too. My foster cannot keep me much longer, and I’m worried.

Little Girl: Don’t worry, Kate. Someone will give you a great home.

Kate: I hope you’re right!
