Jane looked around her room. There were animals everywhere. She had teddy bears from her grandma. She had stuffed animals from her aunt. She even had posters of puppies on the wall. However, what Jane wanted was a real pet. She wanted a puppy or kitten to love and play with.
Jane's mom was reading a book. "Mom, can I ask you something?" asked Jane.
"Sure Honey," said Mom.
"I know I have teddy bears from grandma and stuffed animals from aunt Linda, but I really want a real pet to take care of," said Jane.
Jane's mom put down her book. "Pets take a lot of work," said Mom. "And they are part of the family for many years. Do you think you would have time to take care of a pet? You should think about it."
