Chinese cat is saved - level 1

Chinese cat is saved - level 1

02-09-2014 15:00

A man from China hears something. It is some cats on his roof. He goes to the roof to check it out. His cat falls into a chimney.

The man calls for help. People try to save the cat, but it is not easy. There is nothing they can do. The man almost stops to hope.

But don’t worry. This story has a happy ending. The man’s neighbour hears some noises in the kitchen. The noises come from the extractor fan. The fan is taken apart and the cat is saved. He is very thin, but he is going to be OK.

Difficult words: chimney (tunnel for smoke), neighbour (person who lives close to you), extractor fan (object which is above the stove and cleans the air when you cook).

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

Why do people and animals in China get stuck at places so often?
