Summary
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
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Lola longs to adopt a cat. Her mother warns that looking after a pet takes work, but Lola persists, reading about cats, learning about them, and using one of her stuffed animals for practice. When Mommy agrees, they visit a shelter and find the right one. Next, they gather supplies and prepare a special cat corner at home. When they first bring the cat there, Lola watches from a little distance while she explores. Giving her food, water, and gentle care, Lola helps her feel at home. As in Lola Plants a Garden (2014), the simple, understated text hits just the right note for young children, while the acrylic paintings portray the characters with warmth and just enough detail. Depicted with cocoa-brown skin and curly, dark hair, Lola and her parents stand in for every family that prepares for a new pet in a sensible, empathetic way. Adults preparing kids for a new cat will find this appealing picture book a good way to balance their children's excitement with consideration for the animal's point of view.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2017 Booklist"
