My two cats

Listen to Dave talking about travelling to different countries with his cats.

Do the preparation task first. Then listen to the audio and do the exercises.



Language level

Upper intermediate: B2


I would prefer to live in Italy,Greece or any of the Pacific Islands,but I wouldn t mind to live and work in every country of the world.I think people are divided in cats and dogs,because their personalities.If you are like a cat you ll understand much better the behaviour of this animal.It s the same with the dog.I don t want more pets,because I ve got two cats older than Masha and Misha and I missed one more cat last month(she died because she was eighteen years old!)-I ve always wanted to get a parrot,but maybe in the future.

I like travelling very much, but I think I can never leave my homeland for a long time. I would like to go to Italy, Spain and especially the countries of the Middle East, and learn about different cultures

Hi John,
I'm sorry to hear that. Can you tell us a bit more about your problem?

I like cat 。

can you help me?
At the beginning of the story the speaker say "who" and not "which" about Misha and Masha. But they are animals. Is "Who" used for animals also?

Hello Ric111!
As you probably know, many pet owners think of their pets as people! This is why the speaker uses 'who'. Most English speakers will use 'who' for animals they know well, especially pets, but will use 'which' or 'that' when talking about animals they don't know.
Hope that helps!

Thank you very much Jeremy!

hi, I don't agree. For me, it's the different way of dealing with the dog or the cat . While into relationship among human and dogs is the dog that accomplish more important effort to create the relationship, indeed the dog  accomplish all the order that we give him. With the cat it's different. We should strive to better understand the cat. When you understand your cat, you create a wonderful relationship. Maybe better than with the dog

Cats are NOT aloof and indifferent! I have got two cats. Yes, they are russians cats too )) Their names are Markiz and Lilu
They are so cute and kind. They like when we stroke them. They like to sleep in our beds, sit on our laps and play with us. They also love to play with each other. They love each other as wife and husband. And they have very different characters.
Markiz is a big cat, who is afraid of nothing, loves to eat meat, and catches anything that moves.
Lilu is a small pussycat, she is afraid of everything,  but she is affectionate. She likes eat dairy products such as yogurt.
