What happens when you expect an itty-bitty kitty . . . but get a lion instead?
It's kitten delivery day, but--SURPRISE. Congratulations on your new LION We know you ordered a kitten, but we ran out of those. Fortunately, the big cat comes with instructions--like, try very hard NOT to look like a zebra. Or a gazelle. And give your lion PLENTY of space to play. But soon the feathers and fur start flying and everything's in chaos. Is there any way a lion could actually be a child's purr-fect pet?
