This is a short dictation about a fictional speaker's favorite animal. The picture probably gives away the type of animal that is the speaker's favorite, but which is your favorite animal.
In the UK, it's not uncommon for people to say that they're either a dog person or a cat person, meaning they like dogs or they like cats.
I live in a household that has both cats and dogs. While cats and dogs tend to have quite different behavior, I'm not sure I could pick just one type as my favorite animal.

Listen to the complete text from start to finish.
My favorite animal is the cat. I like cats because they are very cute, and they are also very independent. I like cats because they are clever, and I also like their soft fur. There are many different types of cats and I love them all!
Now listen to the slower version and type what you hear into the text box.
