Lola wants a cat, but Mommy says taking care of a pet is a lot of work. So Lola does her homework. At the library she finds books about cats and pet care and she and Mommy learn as much as they can. She pretends her stuffed kitty is real and practices taking care of it. When the time comes, Lola is allowed to pick out her new friend at an animal shelter. With patience and care, her kitten settles in at home.

Lola is a book-loving favorite, and this delightful story is a new treasure in the series.

"This sweet story of first-time pet ownership is sure to appeal to young animal lovers of all kinds and especially to feline fanciers"—Kirkus Reviews

"A solid introduction to pet ownership, probably best shared one-on-one"—School Library Journal
