Last week in “Days of Our Nine Lives,” the ARF cats met new arrivals.
Mr. Gray: Hey, Indie, what’s wrong with you? You look agitated.
Indigo: I am. There is always so much talk about ARF dogs that I think we cats get left behind. Just this past week, Topper the Corgi-mix was adopted, but no cats.
Pepper: Finally! Someone said what I haven’t had the nerve to say myself. Now it’s out in the open. Cats are great pets, just like dogs!
Indigo: I think humans forget what great companions we make, and we’re easy to care for!
Tex: That’s great news, although we all will miss him.
Zeus: You know, I’d make a great companion for many reasons. I am big and pure white, so even in the dark of night a human will see me and not trip over me! I’m friendly and just love to be a good friend.
Bear: And I’m just as friendly as Zeus, but yes, I am jet black.
Indigo: Bear, you and I are jet black, but there are lots of humans out there who can see our beauty. Besides looking so good, we make great buddies at home.
Heavenly Whiskers: I’m the perfect choice for the human who has trouble making up her mind. I’m white and gray, and friendly, but not overwhelmingly so. I won’t bother my human when she has work to do, but I’ll be there when she’s ready to cuddle.
Carly: Whiskers, you think you’re the answer for those who cannot make up their minds? Well so am I! I’m black and white.
Pepper: As am I!
Indigo: I guess there is a consensus in this room that all of us have something to offer humans. Now if we could only get them in here to meet us and give us a chance!
Be sure to keep up with the animal antics of “Days of Our Nine Lives” each week. And please stop in to say hello to the entire adoptable cast at the ARF House, 26890 Hwy. 243 on Saturdays 10-4 and Sundays 10-2, or by appointment M-F by calling 951-659-1122.
