6. An Earthquake

A: Did you feel the earthquake last night?

B: Yes, the whole house was shaking!

A: I was afraid the windows would shatter!

B: A lot of my collectibles fell off their shelves.

A: Did they break?

B: Unfortunately. Some of them can be fixed, though.

A: My cat was outside when the earthquake started.

B: Oh no! That's terrible! Is she ok?

A: She's fine. Animals have good natural instincts.

B: I wish people could predict earthquakes, too.

A: I think it would just make people panic more easily.

B: You're right. Maybe it's best to leave it to cats.
