I have seen cats that were so ugly and ferocious that they could make a grown man turn and run.

But that isn't the real issue. More importantly is that you are letting opinions and biases interfere with your learning. Learn the language first, then use it to say what you would like to say.

Yes, cats are beautiful and awesome (I have one indoor and share 3 outdoors with a neighbor), but don't take it personally. I have the sentence "I drink beer and wine" all the time and I would never touch alcoholic drinks, but we all have to translate it. Also, if you get a question wrong it just repeats, so just translate the question and get on with it.

You made a post about cats, I posted a picture of a cat without comment. The interpretation thereof is up to the viewer :-)

Es solamente un ejemplo. Sinceramente algunos gatos son feos, pero no muchos.

Take any chance to learn a language. Even if you think something being said is factually incorrect, it is incorrect in a language you're learning. :)

in your eyes some cats may be ugly, but to me there is no such thing as an ugly cat.

Awww, I can sympathize. Cats are beautiful creatures! I have two myself.

I'm being stubborn about this I know, but I refuse to say that any cat can be ugly. It's factually incorrect, just like "the bird eats an apple" or "the dog reads the newspaper". It's physically impossible for a cat to be ugly.
