    1 MY TIMMY

    I have some pets. However, my favorite pet is Timmy. Timmy is a

    male cat. He is very adorable with his soft fur. He has innocent eyes

    and feeble sweet voice. He always meows when he feels hungry.

    Actually, his voice is not suitable with his big body. When I come

    home, he usually rubs himself against my legs.

    Timmy is a nice friend. I am happy to spend my time with him.

    Most of the time, hes a good pet. Its almost impossible for me to be

    angry at him. In the morning, he always wakes up early. When he

    wakes up earlier, he waits quietly by my bedside until I wake up.
