Pinky and Rex and the Just-Right Pet

Series: Pinky and Rex
by James Howe Illustrated by Melissa Sweet

Pinky's family is getting a pet! The problem is, by a three to one vote, they've decided to get a cat, and Pinky wants a dog. And when they get a kitten, Pinky's sister, Amanda, says that Patches is "hers."

Why should Pinky care? He didn't want a cat in the first place. But Patches may have her own ideas about whose cat she is.
