Last week in “Days of Our Nine Lives,” the ARF cats talked about how ARF works to help local pets and their families with veterinary costs.
Phil: Voting has begun! Votes for Pets of the Year started Monday.
Harley: And ends at 9 p.m. Monday, April 4.
Phil: It is pretty exciting, but life in the ARF cattery goes on.
Harley: That’s right, Phil. We cats keep getting more pretty and handsome every day, waiting for our forever homes.
Whiskers: We really must find ways to get humans in here to see just how wonderful we are.
Pepper: Maybe we could put on a show!
Harley: Speaking for myself, I put on a show every time someone walks through the door.
Don: Yes, you are a clown.
Phil: And I must admit that Don and I put on a show continually.
Paisley: You two really are amusing, but I prefer to be known as the cat who loves a lap.
Don: Yeah, that describes you.
Paisley: And I like to purr and give love.
Don: I think we all like to give love; it’s just that we all do it in our own way.
Pepper: Just like dogs, or humans for that matter, we are individuals.
Lola: Individuals, you bet. Some humans put us cats all into one category, but we have many categories.
Harley: Now that’s true. Some of us are quiet, some are active and some are shy.
Lola: Humans need to give us a chance to shine, to show our individual personalities.
Whiskers: And we are bound to impress.
