When you listen to the audio he says "maji" but it says maziwa

I know that a cat lapping up milk from a bowl is an iconic image, but after kittenhood, cats lose the ability to digest lactose (and during kittenhood, they need the special blend of nutrients found in mother's milk or specially-made formula). Drinking a drop or two won't kill them, but excessive milk consumption can lead to diarrhea, dehydration, and malnutrition, since they're losing water and they're not getting the full range of nutrients they need.

So, take care of paka wenu, and don't let them wanakunywa too much maziwa.

Audio is wrong

Please check this one : it is written maziwa but the audio says clearly maji.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/O.DErisat

audio says maji and written sentence is maziwa. additionally anakunywa = drinks or is drinking

Yeah it does not match in many other places either

Mine is hardcore so it drinks beer!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sikubali1

the audio in fact says "my cat drinks water", which is healthier - mine only drink water

What noun class does "paka" belong to? Most animals are Class 3/4 right? M/Mi?

The audio says maji, not maziwa. The translation says the cat is drinking milk, not water


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Cynthia9th

The spoken word at the end of the sentence is "maji" not "maziwa",
