Last week in “Days of Our Nine Lives,” new ARF cats greeted Buffie, the newest member of the feline family.
Phil: The weather, except for the loud thunder, has been so very nice!
Atlas: You are correct, Phil. What could be better?
Phil: Oh, finding a forever home for each of us?
Buffie: That would certainly be nicer than the best of weather!
Harley: Since it’s so nice, and we are all here, let’s have some fun.
Buffie: Yes! What do you all do for a good time?
Candy: Besides doing our best to impress visitors, I guess we like games.
Atlas: I have an idea! I’ll start a poem, and then one of you adds a line, OK?
Phil: I’m ready. Go ahead and start, Atlas.
Atlas: OK. How about this: Roses are red, and I don’t like to roam,
Phil: All ARF cats here, would sure like a home.
Buffie: Laps, petting, purring and love,
Cuddles: We might like a dog, and even a dove.
Don: A furever home is what we need,
Pepper: A place to call ours is desired indeed!
Whiskers: Hey! That was pretty good.
Don: It was, but we could cut right to the point.
Candy: Do you mean a shorter, more effective poem?
Harley: I think so, and here it is: Roses are red, violets are blue. Now come and adopt us.
Candy: I guess that says it all!
