Last week in “Days of Our Nine Lives,” ARF pets heard Tex’s frustration, still looking for a forever family.

Sadie: Guess I’m in charge for the time being, so listen up.
Mr. Gray: We’re all here.
Sadie: Tex found her forever family!! And she knows them well. Her foster family decided to adopt her, and the ARF humans are crying tears of joy.
Mr. Gray: Now that is some of the best news I’ve heard in a very long time.
Heavenly Whiskers: So that leaves us cats, yes?
Pepper: Right. I think it is our time to move on from ARF.
Sadie: I’m ready! Really, I’ve become so friendly and affectionate. I can just imagine the right, loving, caring human falling in love with me and taking me home.
George: That is a nice dream. Remember, I was adopted once and part of a family for quite a while. It was magnificent.
Sadie: I bet it was. Remind me why you are back at ARF.
George: My guardian had to move in with someone else, and I wasn’t allowed to go with her. I really, really loved her, and she really loved me.
Pepper: Oh, George, I’m so sorry. This must be so difficult for you.
Mr. Gray: But I love having George back here. We are best buddies, you know?
George: We are, Mr. Gray, and I love playing with you, but nothing beats having a forever family.
Mr. Gray: You’re right. Hey! Wouldn’t it be wonderful if someone adopted us together?
Heavenly Whiskers: It would! And I heard the ARF humans say that if someone adopted you both together, the adoption fee would be a discounted twofer. Now that is a great deal!
Mr. Gray: Especially for us!
