Unfortunately, i don't have any pet, because my parents don't like them. But if i could have one, certainly would be a dog. It would be very funny kidding with one.

I really like pets and luckily, I have a cat. It has white and black spots, so my family named it Dom. Dom is a male cat. He is so lovely and friendly but sometimes he's so lazy, he often lies on my mother's leg or on my bed without doing something. Dom loves eatting fishes. After school, I often play with him, which makes me very comfortable. My family and i all like him so much.
