Last week in “Days of Our Nine Lives,” ARF family members wondered why they hadn’t yet found their forever homes.


Panther: Wow. I think things have stagnated.

Indigo: I agree. No adoptions in the last couple of weeks. What’s up with that?

Panther: I don’t know. You and I are so friendly, warming up to any human who wants to give us some attention. We’d


both be great greeters in a forever home.

Freda: As would I!

Jax: Zoe and I would be great greeters, too.


Zoe: We really like humans … and cats … and dogs. Can’t people see what perfect pets we are?


Topsy: (entering office) Excuse me. Uh, I’m one of the seven kittens awaiting a forever home.

Mr. Gray: Well, hello, Topsy. Aren’t you adorable!?!

Jax: Hi, Topsy! You are really cute. Are the other kittens as cute as you?

Topsy: Heck, yeah! We are so playful and friendly. And we visited with a couple of very large dogs this last weekend. They were great! I think we all like dogs.

Zoe: Wow! The kittens like dogs, and we ARF dogs like kittens and cats. Why haven’t we been adopted?

Jax: I’m so confused. I just don’t understand.

Mr. Gray

Topsy: All of us kittens use the litter box.  Are you dogs house trained?

Freda: You bet we are. And I use a doggy door!

Jax: I must confess, I’d really like to be adopted together with Zoe, but it’s not a requirement.

Sadie: And I bet some of those kittens would love to be adopted with a kitten littermate.

Zoe: They play together so much, it could be a good idea.

Sadie: But solo kittens do well, too.
