Cat saves a boy - level 2

Cat saves a boy - level 2

26-05-2014 07:00

People viewed a video on the internet more than 20 million times. It showed a dog who attacked a boy on a bike. The dog bit the boy on his leg and dragged him off of his bike.

Luckily, there was a cat which saved the boy. Her name was Tara and she launched on the dog and made it go away.

People loved the cat and they hailed her a hero. The cat started a minor baseball league on Tuesday. Many people came just to see the cat.

Difficult words: drag (pull), launch (jump quickly), hail (call), start (the cat began the baseball game by “throwing” the baseball).

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