Last week in “Days of Our Nine Lives,” ARF cats learned that Sox was already adopted.
Zeus: Did any of you hear how the ARF yard sale went?
Sadie: I heard it was pretty darned good, especially because three of the five kittens were adopted!
Mr. Gray: Didn’t they just get here?
Heavenly Whiskers: Yep. They came in on Friday, and by Sunday night, there were only two.
Sadie: Humans who want a kitten right now better act quickly or they’ll have to wait until the other litter is ready for adoption in a few weeks.
Pepper: In other news, ARF now has a really cool dog.
Zeus: Oh yea! I nearly forgot. Her name is Daisy, and here she comes now.
Daisy: Good morning! Yes, I’m Daisy, and all of you stay right here because I really like cats.
Zeus: So good to meet you, Daisy. Do you also like dogs?
Daisy: I do! I like dogs of all sizes, and I really, really like to play. I overheard my foster telling the ARF humans that I am so tolerant of other dogs and their antics. I also love humans … all humans.
Zeus: You’re a good size for a family, I think.
Daisy: True! Being a lab mix, I’m about 60 pounds. I’m also house trained, crate trained, and very happy to be indoors. As a matter of fact, I have been known to sleep on the foot of my human’s bed.
Thomas: I am so happy you like cats. That will make you even more desirable as a member of a family.
Daisy: Any idea how long before I’m adopted?
Sadie: Hopefully it will be very soon, for all of us.
