This happens at an airport. The airport is in Russia’s Far East. A cat lives at the airport. It gets inside a shop.

There is seafood in there. The cat is hungry. It eats some of the seafood. It has a fish and an octopus. The shop owners are unhappy about this. They must throw away a lot of the seafood. This seafood is worth 1,000 dollars.

There is a video of the cat on the Internet. Many people watch it. Some people want to find the cat. They want to take it home.

Difficult words: octopus (an animal which lives in the sea and has eight arms), owner (person has something), be worth (cost).
