Patricia MacLachlan By: Waiting for the Magic
People may dream but love can hold them together
There is a family who gets 4 dogs and 1 cat. There dad left somewhere and came back but the mom does like the dad because he left them for a while. His son William does like his dad because the left them. The magic happens when they get the four gods and the one cat because they animals start taking to the family that adopted them from the animal center/shelter. The problem is that the dad comes back and he mad a very clear answer that he doesn't like animals in the house.
