Decodable non-fiction passages - Pets, Pets, Pets
 Pets, Pets, Pets!
Lots of animals can be splendid pets.
Dogs are fun pets for kids. Dogs must have a spot to run and sniff. They will nap in bed with you if Mom and Dad have said they can.
Cats are funny pets. They are swift as they hunt. But they nap a lot. Mom and Dad cannot stop cats from napping on the bed! Cats do what they will.
If you do not have a big spot for a pet, get a rabbit. Rabbits are fluffy and soft. They snack on plants. You can bring a carrot to the rabbit. It will be glad.
Ants can be pets, as well. They can be kept in a plastic box full of sand. They do not nap in bed with you. But they dig tunnels in the sand.
And then there are animals that are not splendid pets. There are not a lot of kids that have a pet hippo!
