I took care of chicken that was given as a present for me when I was young. I think I haven't seen the sheep. I have seen the rest of animals. I love to care of cows, pigs and goats I have read, those animals are very friendly.

I used to have a dog and a cat as pets when I was a child. Now I live in a small apartment and there is no enough room for them. I like horses too and I would like to have a farm someday with chickens, pigs, goats, and rabbits.

I have a question. Why is a mouse one of the farm animals? A cat has a role of chasing a mouse. But why does a mouse live in a farm? :(

Hello Rafaela1,

I suppose because they can always find food of some sort? Next time I see one, I'll be sure to ask ...

All the best,

Maybe taking care of the farm food or the cat looks at the rat because it is its prey.

Currently, I don't. But, we had a dog in my parents' house and one summer I went there for holidays and I took care of him. I gave him showers, fed him, played with him, went for a walk with him, and even talked to him when I felt bad. He was like a friend, we spent a lot of time together. I've never seen a pig. I used the past simple, but I'm not sure if it is correct. I'm a bit confused! Would you please tell me which tense I should use in this case. Thank you for your attention. Best wishes

Hello Asni,

Yes, the past simple is appropriate here. You're describing a series of actions which took place in the past at a specified time.

Hello Peter, Thank you for your answer. I was confused because when I described the action of feeding 'I fed him' I meant that I was doing that over a period of time in the past, in this case, during the holidays, not only once.

I'd love to have pets but I still doesn't have. I maybe will choose a cat because this animal doesn't too much care, it can make his life by it own. Maybe when I will have a house or more time for me I will take a dog too. I think I've ever seen all of this animals, perhaps not pigs. Sadly I've already see mice in my flat ... I'd prefer to never have see this animal ;)

Very funny! I named my dog Patience and I leave Burkina Faso when he was still a baby dog. But when I went back from Algeria in 2017, he totally forgot me and was in the point to attack me, fortunately my mom was here. During my holidays I tried my best to get his heart but I failed, whatever I still love him because he is too cute and my best keeper. Best friend forever Patience!!!!!!!!!!!
