Cats Island of Japan - level 2
Cat lovers, this news is for you! There is a tiny island in southern Japan where there are more cats than humans.
Around 120 cats live and run over the island which people nicknamed “Cats Island.” Tourists from around Japan come to the island, even though there are no shops or hotels.
People brought the cats to the island originally to deal with mice, but the cats multiplied because they had no natural predators on the island.
Tourists and some locals feed the cats, but a lot of them have to look for their own food.
Difficult words: tiny (very small), nickname (to give something a nickname – a humorous name), multiply (to have babies).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
