Last week in “Days of Our Nine Lives,” the ARF cats discussed boosting the spirits of the last kitten waiting to be adopted..
Phil: Banner weekend! It was a banner weekend!
Harley: You’re still here, so it wasn’t your adoption. Why so excited?
Phil: All the kittens have gone to their new homes.
Don: Not a one is left.
Harley: No kittens, but I’ve heard that there is a new cat.
Candy: (Bouncing into the room) That new cat would be me! Hi, everyone!
Phil: Wow! You know how to make an entrance. Welcome!
Candy: I’m Candy, ARF’s newest family member.
Pepper: Candy, you are very small. What’s your story?
Candy: I was a stray, sadly. ARF recognized what a great member of a family I will be and took me into their loving care. I’m very young and so very happy to be with all of you.
Whiskers: I’ve heard the ARF humans talking about you. They say you are incredibly friendly.
Candy: Oh gosh, you embarrass me. But yes, I am very friendly because I just love humans. I cannot wait to be member of a family.
Don: I saw you with a little girl the other day. You were so friendly and affectionate. The little girl liked you so much, and you were the perfect size for her!
Phil: I think she would have taken you home if she and her aunt hadn’t just adopted one of the kittens.
Don: We welcome you, Candy. You are a sweet addition to our family, and you’ll be an even sweeter addition to your forever home.
Pepper: Ha ha, Don. I get it!
