Buster isn’t fluffy or pretty like other cats—he’s a crazy orange cat with attitude. And Mr. Larsen is the exact right person for him. Every morning Buster and Mr. Larsen sit on their porch in the sun, and every morning Josh sees them when he walks to school.
 
When Mr. Larsen goes to the hospital and Buster goes missing, Josh and his family look for that crazy cat everywhere. But if Buster turns up, Rainbow Street Animal Shelter will have to help him find another home.
 
That’s when Josh and his family realize that—sometimes—life can choose a pet for you.

Missing! A Cat Called Buster
1Buster and his sisters and brother were born in a box at the back of a garage. The three sisters were fluffy and pretty, and the brother was sleek and black.Buster had a square head and a crooked white snip on his nose. His fur was as orange as marmalade on warm toast.Their mother licked them clean, fed them, and looked after them so well that their cardboard box was as good a home as the comfiest cat basket. The kittens learned to open their eyes and look all around. They learned to wash their faces and paws clean with their scratchy tongues.
