Cat eats food for 1,000 dollars - level 2

Cat eats food for 1,000 dollars - level 2

18-12-2014 07:00

This happened at an airport in Russia’s Far East. A cat got inside a shop and ate some of the shop’s seafood. The cat ate some fish, smoked squid and even a dried octopus. The whole fish counter had to be thrown away because of sanitary rules. This amount of seafood was worth 1,000 dollars.

The ginger cat can be seen sometimes at the airport, but it may have a new home soon. A lot of people have seen the Internet video of the cat and would like to adopt it.

Difficult words: squid (an animal which looks a little like an octopus), sanitary rules (rules about hygiene), ginger (a light reddish-yellow or orange-brown colour).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
