Last week in “Days of Our Nine Lives,” the cats met new ARF cat Marcel.
Whiskers: Everyone get over here. You won’t believe the news I have!
Pepper: We are all here. What is it?
Whiskers: Hang onto your hats. Sadie was adopted!!
Pepper: Holy cat nip! She has been with ARF for many years. How very exciting.
Whiskers: And we also have another new cat, Flash.
Pepper: So many new cats and cats adopted in the last few months. Maybe I’m next?
Whiskers: Regardless, let me tell you about Flash.
Flash: Talking about me? Hi, I’m Flash.
Marcel: Ah, another new cat. Hi, Flash, I’m Marcel. I’m new here, too.
Flash: Nice to meet all of you. I’m a very friendly girl who is about 8 years old.
Pepper: Are you as friendly as Marcel?
Lulu: She is. I’ve seen her meet several new humans.
Flash: I really like humans, and I’d really like a new forever home.
Marcel: It seems that any human who comes to ARF will be greeted by many friendly, happy felines.
Lulu: Both dogs and cats have been adopted so quickly in recent months.
Metta: And I suppose that any family looking for a loyal feline or canine companion should make an effort to get here as soon as possible.
Pepper: No kidding. They just need to call to make an appointment.
Lulu: Clearly, there is a family out there somewhere for each of us.
Metta: Just look at Sadie!
Triton: I hear she waited quite a while before she found the perfect home.
Whiskers: I think it’s true when humans say the right pet will find the right family. All it takes is patience.
