'If I had a raptor,
I'd want to get her as a baby.
When she's all teensy and tiny
And funny and fluffy.

Now if I could do this I'd be sure to put a little bell around my raptor so I'd always know where she was. My raptor would sit on my lap and she’d also like to stretch out by the windowsill where it is sunny and warm.

I think my raptor would sleep a lot because she will probably like going out at night. I'll feed my raptor and teach her to behave while she is in the house. No doubt when she gets older I'll have to cut her claws from time to time also.

If I had a raptor I think she would be the best pet a girl could possibly have. The only problem is as my raptor got bigger there might be some issues about her staying indoors. There might be some other issues also with my pet.

As you read my book you can decide for yourself if you'd like to have a raptor too. I personally think they would make extremely cool pets but you may not agree with me. Too bad!
