In this hilarious, heartfelt picture book, one little girl discovers just how difficult it can be to find the perfect pet. Along the way, she meets a zany mix of cats with distinct personalities, but none of them are right for her! After a comical cat chase, she finally finds a special one to call her very own. In this follow-up to I Don't Want a Posh Dog!, Emma Dodd reminds readers that, while there are many different kinds of pets to choose from, everyone of us can find a loveable four-legged friend to share our hearts and hugs with.

With whimsical illustrations and playful rhyming text, I Don't Want a Cool Cat! demonstrates the bond people share with their favorite feline friends--the perfect read-aloud for cat lovers and their little ones.

I love the rhyming, descriptive words about different cats! Great use of vocabulary, funny, fun to read to my girls.

Our heroine is looking for the purrrfect kitty to have for her very own. Short phrases, rhymes all within context without overdoing the premise. This will become a story-time favorite.

"I don't want a Stuffy Cat. A Huffy, over-fluffy cat. I don't want a night cat. A looking for a fight cat.
I don't want a greedy cat. A 'meow, meow, please feed me' cat".
