My friend needs someone to look after her two cats while she’s on vacation.
By Stefano Lodola
La mia amica è in vacanza. Ha bisogno di qualcuno per badare ai suoi due gatti. Così, io sto gratis a casa sua con i gatti.
Mi piacciono i gatti. Mi piace anche avere la casa gratis.
L’appartamento è davanti a una piccola montagna ed è grande per una persona sola. Il salotto ha grandi finestre con una bella vista.
I gatti si chiamano Meo e Hei. Sono tutte e due femmine. Meo può uscire in terrazza ma Hei no. Hei è buona ma Meo morde e graffia.
I gatti giocano spesso insieme. Sono amici.
Cucino spesso. A volte, pranzo al ristorante vegetariano qui vicino. I gatti non sono vegetariani. Peccato!
My friend is on vacation. She needs someone to look after her two cats. So, I’m staying at her place with her cats for free.
I like cats. I also like to have free lodging.
The apartment is large only for one and faces a small mountain. The living room has large windows with a nice view.
The cats are Meo and Hei, both females. Meo can go out to the balcony, but Hei won’t. Hei is nice, but Meo bites and scratches.
The cats often play together. They’re friends.
I often cook. Sometimes, I have lunch at nearby vegetarian restaurant. The cats are not vegetarian. Too bad!
