Tried and exhausted, I came back home from work. I found the front door was 36 open and I felt a little scared. Did 38 . Why would someone come into I carelessly forget to lock it after I left? I looked around 37 to see what could be my home only to 39 with nothing? After searching every inch, I realized that everything was 40 I had left it. No 41 cushions, broken lamps, or 42 emptied out on the carpet. Feeling much 43 . I looked out my oversized window of my dinning room at Ms. Sullivan’s house. Jimmy, the little boy next door was visiting her. Jimmy cared a lot about Ms. Sullivan and was very concerned with her health after she became ill. She used to 44 Jimmy when he was just a baby. Forgetting about the 45 with my front door, I decided to walk over to Ms. Sullivan’s house to see how she was 46 . With a warm hello, she invited me into her home. I noticed twelve beautiful roses delicately presented on the table next to her bed. They looked exactly like the 47 on my dinning room table in front of my oversized window. With a pleasant smile, she told me Jimmy brought them to her as a “get-well gift”. Suddenly Jimmy 48 out of his seat in an instant and said that he had to go home for a while to do some homework but he promised to be back to 49 up on Ms. Sullivan. Talking for a while, Ms. Sullivan began to get very tired so I gave her my phone number in case she 50 needed help, and left her home. I thought about how 51 it was for little Jimmy to be so concerned for Ms. Sullivan. I got home, laughing at how 52 I was that morning about what had happened over 53 . I walked passed the dinning room and noticed my roses 54 in the vase were missing. Without a second 55 , I glanced out the window at Ms. Sullivan’s house and with a smile on my face I turned off the light in the room and went to sleep. The next morning my door bell rang.

By scratching up the bark of a tree (or the leg of your favorite chair) the cat is letting other cats or people know where she is and what she is up to. Cats tend to pick a small number of noticeable objects in their environments to scratch such as trees, fence posts repeatedly. 72 The scratched surface leaves a highly visible mark that can be easily seen by other cats. In addition, cats
have special glands (腺)in their paws so that when they make scratching movements they leave scent(气味) (气味) that the cats can smell. The fact that cats leave scent marks by making scratching movements may be the reason that cats will continue to scratch objects even after they have been declawed. 73 We don’t know exactly what cats are communicating with their scratching. Both males and females do it. It is done inside and outside the home and even by cats living with no other cats around. 74 Cats don’t scratch up your furniture to bother you or just to be destructive, but for specific reasons, one of which is communicating. Cats also scratch to extend their bodies, during play, and possibly as a greeting or to relieve dissatisfaction when prevented from doing other things they want to do. 75 It is easier to prevent problem scratching rather than trying to change your cat’s preference for the arm of your sofa after it has become a built up habit. Thus, the goal is to establish acceptable scratching habits by getting your cat to prefer a scratching post rather than the arm of your sofa. A.It turns out that this is only a secondary reason. B.This is why the tree next door looks so scratched up. C.Cats use other parts of their bodies to communicate as well. D.Small pieces of bark have accumulated on the ground underneath. E.Scratching can result in considerable damage, owner dissatisfaction. F.Declawed cats may still be leaving scent marks on objects they scratch. G.It could be a defensive warning or just a marker that announces its existence.
