Chapter OneIt was early Saturday morning, and Mama Bynka knocked on Lynka Bynka's bedroom door.
"Good morning, Lynka! It's time to wake up," said Mama Bynka cheerily.
Lynka Bynka rubbed her eyes, and stretched a big stretch. "I'm awake Mama. Good morning!" said Lynka Bynka with a big smile on her face. "I'll be right out!"
"Do you know what day it is?" asked Mama Bynka.
"Yes Mama, it is the day we go to the animal shelter to look for a cat!" said Lynka Bynka as she jumped out of bed, wearing her 'cats' pajamas, which had pictures of a number of cats printed on them.
Lynka Bynka went to the kitchen and sat down at the breakfast table with Mama Bynka and Papa Bynka. "I would like to get a little cat from the animal shelter, but I would like the cat to be slightly different," said Lynka Bynka as she spread peanut butter and marmalade on her blueberry pancakes.
"What do you mean, Lynka?" asked Papa Bynka.
"Well, do cats come in green?" asked Lynka Bynka playfully.
"No Lynka, cats do not come in green." said Papa Bynka, smiling.
"Do cats come in blue?" asked Lynka Bynka.
"I've never seen a blue cat, Lynka!" exclaimed Papa Bynka, laughing.
"What about pinkish?" asked Lynka Bynka, "Are there any pinkish cats?"
Papa Bynka laughed so hard at the thought of pinkish cats that he almost tipped over backwards in his chair.
"Lynka, what about eating your pancakes?" asked Mama Bynka.
"Yes, Mama." said Lynka Bynka.
"As soon as you're finished your pancakes, we can go to the animal shelter and look at cats!" said Mama Bynka.
Soon Mama Bynka, Papa Bynka and Lynka Bynka climbed into their van, and headed for the animal shelter. Along the way, they passed Billy Bynka's Bakery.
Billy Bynka and his wife Bunny Bynka were Lynka Bynka's uncle and aunt. They had twin boys named Pinkerton 'Pinky' Bynka and Bubba Bynka. The boys' grandmother Shrynka Bynka, who of course was also Lynka Bynka's grandmother, lived with them.
"Pinky and Bubba have a new cat," said Lynka Bynka. "They have a big fluffy orange cat!"
"Do they call him 'Fluffy'?" asked Mama Bynka.
"No," said Lynka Bynka. "They call him 'Bagel'!"
Papa Bynka giggled at the thought of a big orange baker's cat named 'Bagel'.
"What will you call your cat, Lynka?" asked Papa Bynka.
"I'll have to see what he looks like first," said Lynka Bynka.
In a few minutes they pulled up in front of the animal shelter. Lynka Bynka jumped out of the van and ran into the animal shelter.
