Last week in “Days of Our Nine Lives,” the cats discussed ARF’s role in the community.
Pepper: Things are picking up!
Whiskers: What do you mean?
Pepper: We have two new ARF cats! I’m so excited!
Whiskers: I caught a glimpse of them. What are their stories?
Pepper: Here they are, and they may tell you themselves.
Stevie: Hi! I’m Stevie. I’m a middle-aged boy who is hoping to find a new forever home. And so is my friend, Shorty.
Shorty: Hello, everyone. I may be a senior, but I’m a youngster at heart.
Lulu: Hello, Stevie and Shorty. It’s so very nice to have you here with us. I can see you are fine with us cats. How about dogs?
Stevie: We don’t know. Haven’t really spent any time with the canine crowd.
Pepper: But the big question is, do you like humans?
Stevie: Oh yes! We like to be petted and spoiled.
Lulu: You’re both very handsome. I saw the ARF humans trying to get a good photo of you Shorty, but they were having difficulty. Stevie, however, was more than happy to pose.
Stevie: Oh, I like the camera, but my pal Shorty is a bit camera shy.
Lulu: Then I guess folks will have to set up a time to come meet him in person.
Pepper: And Stevie, too!
Whiskers: Of course. Both Stevie and Shorty welcome the company.
Lulu: As do the rest of us.
