Last week in “Days of Our Nine Lives,” the ARF cats posed for the camera.
Phil: Hey guys, remember how last week Lulu was saying she could win the Pets of the Year competition because of her beauty?
Harley: Right, but we told her she’d have to be adopted and entered by a human on our mountain.
Phil: It could happen! She was adopted this last weekend!
Harley: That is such great news!
Whiskers: What is truly amazing is that there are so many wonderful, friendly cats right here who are looking for forever homes.
Pepper: Seriously. Some ARF volunteers are so puzzled that we all haven’t yet been adopted.
Harley: I think part of the problem is that we haven’t had so many people come in to meet us.
Don: Ain’t that the truth!
Phil: Any visitor will be very impressed with how friendly and fun we are.
Paisley: I’ll keep a human nice and warm, just by snuggling up on her lap.
Don: And I’m so much fun to watch that any person watching will warm up from laughing so much.
Harley: Now that Lulu is eligible to enter the fund-raising contest, the rest of us want to be eligible as well.
Lola: We just have to get the word out.
Pepper: Right! It’s actually words, not word: visit, adopt, start taking photos!
Lola: Unless, of course, there are already dogs, cats or “others” at home.
Harley: Any full- or part-time pet is eligible to compete.
Paisley: Then let’s just hope we see more visitors.
Whiskers: And adoptions!
