Last week in “Days of Our Nine Lives,” the ARF cats talked about the benefits of having a feline as part of the family.

Stevie: Big news! Get over here!
Whiskers: Spill the beans, Stevie.
Stevie: We have two new cats, one being a kitten. (Hollering to the side) Mila! Don! Come on in here.
Don: Hello, fellow felines. I’m Don, and this little cutie is Mila.
Mila: Hey guys. Are any of you up for a round of chase-the-yarn?
Pepper: Perhaps, but we’d first like to know something about you two.
Don: I’ll go first. I’m the newest handsome guy here, and I’m about 6 years old.
Whiskers: I’ve heard you are very friendly.
Don: That’s true. I like people very much, and most of you cats are fine.
Whiskers: And what is your story, Mila?
Mila: I am about 4 months old, super playful, and I also love people. Is anyone ready to play with me?
Pepper: You’re very cute, Mila. And as for that playtime, let me nap first.
Whiskers: Will you two be ready to join a forever family very soon?
Don: Of course we are!
Pepper: People just need to stop by on the weekend, or call ARF to schedule visits for during the week.
Lulu: Visitors will be able to meet all of us and see just how many wonderful cats are here at ARF.
