Megan's Pet Sitting Adventure

Bringing up four kittens is expensive, and if Megan can't come up with an idea fast, her parents will give her precious babies away. She thought pet sitting would be a fun, easy job. Getting to be around more animals - what could go wrong? Megan gets her first job watching Mrs. Driscoll's pets for the weekend. She is responsible for the enthusiastic lab named Max, a talkative African parrot named Taffy, and a finicky Burmese cat named Holly. Each pet comes with its own quirky personality, but Megan plans to look after them like her own. She enlists the help of her best friend Jill, but Jill's mind isn't focused on the pets. Is Megan in over her head? Her neighbor's pets are certainly testing Megan's pet care knowledge. She is thrown one curveball after another as she works to keep the three pets safe and happy. How will Megan fare? Will she earn the Driscoll's praise or get scolded for giving poor pet care? Find out in this exciting story of Megan's Pet Sitting Adventure!

**My thoughts**

I found myself often chuckling aloud as I read through this book. I have been pet sitting for probably 20 years now and have gone through the same gamut of emotions expressed by Megan during the story. I am always worried that something is going to happen to the animals under my watch. I want to do the best job that I can, because that is what I would want someone to do for me when taking care of my furbabies. And I have had my own share of curveballs thrown at me in many of my experiences. And I am significantly older than Megan is. 

I give Megan a lot of credit for taking each incident as it comes and being smart about solving each problem. She is a very responsible young lady. Kids who read her story can stand to learn a lot about taking on a pet sitting job of their own. Megan also seems to have redeemed herself even more from lying to her parents in the first story. She is determined to always be honest and not get herself into trouble again.

As with the first book, I think this book would be a great foundation for discussions on pet care for kids. It would interest kids from elementary through middle school. I know that more books are coming in the series, and I am interested in finding out what else Megan is going to experience and learn.

About Pamela Foland

Pamela Foland grew up in Plano, Texas. Her love of animals started at a very young age. As a child, she was constantly bringing home stray dogs, and injured birds. She graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and a minor in Business in 2005. As an adult, her love of animals has only grown stronger. Pamela has worked in numerous pet hotels as a dog trainer and is certified to teach pet first aid and CPR. All her experience with pets culminated four years ago when Pamela found and raised an abandoned litter of day-old kittens. Not able to part with any of these now-grown babies, Pamela enjoys going home to her "little munchkins" every night. This experience gave Pamela the inspiration for her series debut, Megan's Munchkins. Pamela will always have a special affinity with Megan because of their shared experiences. She truly believes there are few experiences in life more compelling than saving the life of another being.
