Last week in “Days of Our Nine Lives,” the ARF cats talked about ARF’s participation in the annual tree lighting event.
Stevie: Boy, it is quiet in here.
Whiskers: Well, yeah. All the puppies have gone to their forever homes.
Stevie: But we must welcome ARF’s newest dog, Annie.
Annie: (entering the cattery) Hi, everyone. I’m Annie.
Whiskers: You must like cats because you just strolled into this cattery.
Annie: Of course! Cats are fine with me, as are other dogs.
Phil: What else should we know about you?
Annie: Let’s see… I’m a Lab-mix about 9 years old, I’m super mellow, and I really like every being I meet. Even though I’m pretty healthy, I’ve been told that I need to lose weight.
Whiskers: Eh, so do I, but regardless, you are beautiful.
Don: What type of home would be best for you?
Annie: I think I’d like to be in a home with humans who will appreciate my easy-going nature.
Harley: We really appreciate how kind you are to us felines. Have you heard that any human who visits us cats at ARF will get $1,000?
Annie: What? Are you serious?
Don: No, he’s not! He is just kidding. But any human who visits us will feel like a winner.
Phil: And any human who takes time to see us will understand just how friendly we are.
Pepper: ARF has the greatest welcoming committee of all time.
Harley: Between Annie and all of us, everyone will be welcomed with open arms.
