Last week in “Days of Our Nine Lives,” the ARF cats visited with the new cat Harley.
Stevie: Adoption news! All seven puppies have been adopted and will go to their forever homes this Saturday.
Whiskers: That is such exciting news.
Stevie: Now it is so quiet here. What shall we discuss?
Whiskers: Hmmm, well, the holidays are coming.
Stevie: That’s right!
Phil: I’ve heard that ARF will have a booth at the annual tree lighting ceremony on Nov. 27.
Pepper: That’s right, and they will be taking donations for wonderful pet items.
Whiskers: So humans may begin their holiday shopping then. Such lucky dogs and cats.
Don: Will we be there?
Pepper: Aw, come on, Don. You know that being moved around is stressful for us cats.
Harley: I think it is best if we stay at ARF until we are adopted.
Pepper: You’re right, Harley. We are so happy here, being fed, staying warm.
Don: I guess you’re right, but I know I won’t be stressed in a new forever home.
Phil: Neither will I!
Pepper: ARF has never had such a friendly group of cats as they do right now.
Harley: Wouldn’t we be a great way to fill the holidays in any home!
