My Messy House
My house is messy. Books are stacked up on tables, on top of cabinets, and even on the floor. Also, the kitchen table has notebook paper, pens, clips, and staples spread across it. My bed is not made each morning because I dash out of the house just in time to catch the school bus. The kitchen sink is half full of dishes when I wake up because by the time I get to bed I'm too sleepy to wash them. Worst of all, the trash is lined up in three or four bags next to the kitchen door because I forget about it.
You should never race a cheetah. Do you know why? Because you'll always lose. That's because cheetahs are very fast runners. They can run up to 75 miles per hour. The cheetah gets its food by running. But sometimes the lion takes over and grabs the food. That's mean. Cheetahs are carnivores. That means they eat meat. Their prey are gazelles and rodents. The cheetah lives and finds food in Africa. The cheetah and the lion eat each other. If the cheetah is weaker, the lion eats the cheetah, and it's the same with the other. The cheetah has up to three to five babies. The cheetah has larger litters than other cats, but on average only two cubs live into adulthood. Cheetahs are amazing. I hope you like cheetahs. I know I do!
