It was Vera's birthday and she was so excited! She wasn't excited about a cake, or a party, or even about getting a bunch of presents. She was excited because she was finally old enough to have her own pet! "I know just what I want!" thought Vera.
Vera had always dreamed of having her very own kitten—the most perfect kitten around! She was going to brush her kitten every day so she'd have beautiful hair and she would give her all the love in the world. She and her kitten would play dress up and wear matching tiaras!
Vera asked her parents if it was time to go pick out her new kitten. "Are you sure you're ready for the responsibility of taking care of a kitten, Vera?" her mom asked. She proudly showed her the checklist she'd made. "Feeding schedule, play time, litter box cleaning times, brushing time, and vaccinations list. Wow! You ARE ready!" said her mom.
Vera knew exactly what kind of kitten she wanted. As they drove to the pet store, she began daydreaming of what the prettiest kitten would look like. She'd have long white fur, big beautiful eyes, and would smell like flowers. Even her meow would sound pretty! She would easily win the best kitten contest. Surely the only place to find a kitten like that is at the pet store!
As they pulled into the parking lot of the pet store, something caught Vera's eye. Something small was hiding underneath a shopping cart. It was hard to tell what it was, but she saw it moving. Vera knelt down and peeked under the cart and what she saw surprised her!
It was a small, dirty, dusty kitten. The kitten tried to meow, but all that came out was a poor little squeak. It was very skinny and pretty stinky, too. The kitten was missing some fur in a few patches and its ears looked really dirty. The kitten tried to meow again, but could only get out another tiny squeak. "Poor little kitten," Vera said.
