In “Days of Our Nine Lives,” the ARF cats welcomed the “spicy” litter of kittens.

Lulu: Hey, everyone! I have news!
Stevie: Adoptions? New ARF family members?
Lulu: Sadly, no adoptions this last week, but we do have someone for you to meet.
Rosemary: (Enters the room) Hello! I am Rosemary and I am so excited to find my new forever family.
Pepper: I have heard that you are very, very friendly.
Rosemary: You’ve got that right! I’d also like for you to meet my friend Fern. She is also a very friendly girl.
Fern: (Bounds into the room) Hey, there! I’m Fern and I will make some family very, very happy. I love humans and they love me.
Stevie: ARF certainly has some wonderful cats who are so friendly and loving.
Pepper: And we still have three adorable kittens!
Tonka: (Runs in with two other kittens) Hi! I’m Tonka, an adorable kitten, and these are my siblings.
Clover: I am Tonka’s brother and I bet it is safe to say that I am adorable, too!
Saffron: And I am the only girl, Saffron.
Apricot: You three kittens are so cute! How old are you now?
Clover: We just turned 10 weeks old and cannot wait to be in our forever homes.
Whiskers: So many wonderful felines! I hope this holiday weekend is a good one for us.
Cinnamon: I bet we will have lots of human visitors.
Apricot: We will be here awaiting their visits.
Stevie: We will make this the best Independence Day ever!
