Last week in “Days of Our Nine Lives,” the cats welcomed four new ARF kittens.
Bear: Quiet week, huh?
Zeus: It was. Sadly, no adoptions, which really surprises me. The new kittens are really adorable.
Sadie: I’ll say they are! They are over-the-top friendly.
Whiskers: A little girl played with them on Sunday and they were great with her.
Skeeter: (bounding into the cattery) Hey guys! I’m Skeeter, the only boy in the kittenry.
Zeus: Welcome Skeeter. Where are the other kittens?
Cricket: (running in with two other kittens) I’m Cricket! Here are Lady Bug and Firefly.
Whiskers: Wow! You all are really good looking!
Sadie: Even more importantly, they are super fun.
Pepper: Hi kids! You’re kind of on the larger size, aren’t you?
Firefly: That’s the Bengal in us. The reddish color on two of us comes from our Abyssinian side.
Pepper: And look at that beautiful Bengal spotting!
Lady Bug: Humans go crazy over my coloring.
Sadie: It kind of looks like you were in one of those paint spinners. Really interesting and beautiful.
Lady Bug: Oh, yeah!
Whiskers: I was impressed when I saw how friendly and welcoming you were with the humans.
Skeeter: Thanks Whiskers, but it comes naturally to all four of us.
Whiskers: I guess it is safe to say you’ll be adopted in no time.
Bear: Hopefully all of us will. However, if a human wants a lap cat, they’ll need to meet Zeus or I.
Zeus: And adopt us both?
Bear: Maybe, maybe not.
Pepper: And if the human doesn’t want a lap cat, they still have plenty of choices.
Sadie: They will. We aim to please any and all humans who pay us a visit
