Last week in “Days of Our Nine Lives,” the ARF cats were happy to meet little kitten Atlas.
Phil: We have a new cat! Everyone gather ‘round!
Harley: How exciting! Who is the new cat?
Lucky: (Bounding into the room) Hi, everyone! I’m Lucky, the new cat.
Phil: I suppose you are appropriately named. Good fortune has led you to ARF.
Lucky: You are right. I cannot wait to find a permanent home.
Harley: Anyone would be so fortunate to have you as part of the family. Tell us about yourself.
Lucky: I’m young, maybe 2 years old, and very, very friendly. And I don’t mind dogs.
Harley: It’s good to have another ginger cat here!
Candy: I hope lots and lots of people come in to meet all of us.
Atlas: Especially me!
Candy: Yes, Atlas. Kittens are always a draw.
Don: But people need to know that this group of cats is probably the friendliest group ARF has had in years.
Phil: I honestly don’t know how a person could decide which cat to adopt.
Atlas: That’s not tough. The person just needs to narrow down to a few and adopt them all!
Don: Cuz cats are like potato chips.
Pepper: You can’t have just one!
Atlas: That’s pretty funny!
Candy: Funny, but kind of true.
