  • Hello

  • I'm a very interesting and intelligent man

  • and this

  • who, like me, is an excellent teacher of English

  • She is my cat. I bet you've never been taught by a cat before

  • We live together

  • in this house

  • small

  • isn't it

  • Not much room

  • for Tinkles and me

  • In fact, there isn't enough room

  • to swing

  • a cat

  • In English

  • if a room or space is very small

  • to Tinkle’s wedding

  • Cats

  • Little cuties aren’t they?

  • But, never forget
