Cat eats food for 1,000 dollars - level 3

Cat eats food for 1,000 dollars - level 3

18-12-2014 07:00

It's the cat that's got the cream, if cream is 1,000 dollars worth of seafood! This little fella went on a massive sea food binge, as he scoured this shop at an airport in Russia's Far East.

And this moggie was not picky. The cat had a go at the dried flounder, smoked squid and even tried the dried octopus.

This cat burglar is no stranger to food crime – locals say they've seen the homeless ginger moggie before, coming in and having a bite to eat. This time, the shop owners had to write off the entire fish counter because of sanitary rules.

This amateur video has now been viewed online more than half a million times, and some people have been asking how they can find the cat to give it a home. For now, airport officials are keeping an eye out for the feline. Just in case the fishy heaven proves too much of a draw again

Difficult words: fella (“man” or “friend”), binge (to eat too much), scour (look around), moggie (cat), picky (when you choose something you want to eat), flounder (a small flatfish), squid (an animal which looks somewhat like an octopus), sanitary rules (rules about hygiene and health), feline (cat).
