"Моя кошка ест очень долго."

Translation:My cat eats for a very long time.

The Russian says очень долго. I put "for a very long time", and it is corrected to merely "for a long time". Surely the inclusion of "very" is correct?

    There may be something else wrong with your sentence. Sometimes Duo generates a wrong "correct" answer if there's something else wrong with the sentence which the programming cannot deal with.

    моя кошка ест очень долгое время. it is correct. she(cat) eats over than one hour for example

    That would be the same as the given Russian. In other words, your sentence should be accepted as a correct answer.

    I've tried that sentence, gotten it wrong, and reported it.

    Does it mean that the cat has been eating for a long time (and has not stopped yet) or that the cat usually takes a long time to eat?

    Why isn't it changed to "eats vary slowly"???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    Because "a long time" is not the same as "slowly", which is медленно
