Last week in “Days of Our Nine Lives,” the ARF cats talked about the possibility of adoption.

Fern: (Calling aloud) Rosemary? Where are you?
Stevie: If you’re looking for Rosemary, give it up. She was adopted!
Fern: Well, that’s great news. I was calling for her because I’m hearing noises.
Stevie: Oh, I hear the noises too, and I think I know where the ruckus is coming from.
Pepper: I bet it’s those puppies.
Fern: Puppies? We have puppies?
Pepper: And they are adorable. I’ll get them into here. (Calling) Cookie! Biscuit! Brownie!
Brownie: (Bounding into the room with two other puppies) We are here! Hey, everyone! I am Brownie.
Biscuit: And I’m his sister, Biscuit.
Cookie: And I’m his other sister, Cookie.
Pepper: What an adorable litter you are. Tell us about yourselves.
Cookie: We are almost 8 weeks old. The vet and ARF folk think we will be about 30 to 35 pounds.
Biscuit: And there just might be some Australian Shepherd in us.
Pepper: Oh my gosh, you are so cute!
Claire: (Entering the room) Uh, excuse me. I’m Claire.
Whiskers: Are you related to these precious puppies?
Claire: Oh, no, but I am also looking for a forever home. I’m about 5 years old, and it is guessed that I am a mix of Shepherd and Husky. Just look at my eyes.
Pepper: Your eyes are a stunning ice blue!
Claire: I love to relax. I’m house trained, very quiet and very trustworthy. My fosters have left me alone in the house and I touch nothing. But please don’t house me with a cat! And to be honest, I’d much rather be the only pet as I really want attention.
Pepper: I’ve heard wonderful things about you. I hope you all find your homes very soon!
