Last week in “Days of Our Nine Lives,” the cats discussed being adopted in the new year.
Bear: Hey Zeus. What’s up with the kittenry? I’m confused.
Zeus: As usual, the kittens didn’t last too long here. Anita and Angus were adopted together last week.
Sadie: Yes, they are gone. They’ve been replaced already.
Whiskers: Yep. There are now four more kittens!
Bear: The revolving door.
Zeus: They are really cute.
Sadie: There are three girls and one boy, and they will be fairly large as they are part Bengal.
Whiskers: What are their names?
Sadie: The girls are Lady Bug, Firefly, and Cricket. The boy is Skeeter.
Pepper: Cute names. Are they friendly?
Sadie: You bet they are. They are very socialized and just love humans.
Pepper: Regardless of the kittens, it is quieter here now with fewer adult cats.
Whiskers: True, Pepper. But wouldn’t it be amazing if the rest of us adults found forever homes?
Sadie: Amazing. Wonderful. Joyful! It would be all of these things.
Bear: We will have stiff competition from the kittens.
Whiskers: Maybe Bear, but for folks who don’t want to deal with kitten antics, we are the perfect option.
Sadie: Kittens are adorable, but they are a bundle of activity.
Whiskers: Adult cats are already past the kitten craziness and ready to settle into a warm lap.
Bear: All of us adults qualify for that!
Zeus: So is it safe to say that ARF has a cat for every forever home?
Sadie: It is! Now all we need to do is get the humans to come by to meet us.
