Text 1: Joni, My Furred Friend
Joni, My Furred Friend
Joni, that’s his name. My older brother presented as my birthday gift. He is a very cute cat and I love him so much.
Joni has thick fur. The dominant black with white spot makes him more beautiful. His body is rather fat and it is very amusing to watch him walk. What I like most is his nose. Joni is a Persian cat which makes him flat-nosed.
Joni is very friendly. My friends who come to my house always have some fun with him. I feed him pet food everyday and he likes it very much. He always meows while following me if I haven’t given him some. Sometimes he also walks around the house and I think some neighbor’s cats must be fascinated with him.
1st paragraph: Joni is a cat given as birthday gift.
