Chinese cat is saved - level 2

Chinese cat is saved - level 2

02-09-2014 15:00

A Chinese man heard cats fighting on the roof of his building. He went to check it out and saw his cat fall into a chimney.

He contacted the management office. The people there tried to get the cat out in many ways. However, all methods were ineffective. A month later, the owner had almost lost hope.

But the story has a happy ending. One neighbour heard strange noises in the kitchen. The noises came from the extractor fan. People took it apart and saved the cat. The cat lost a lot of weight, but he is going to be fine.

Difficult words: chimney (tunnel for smoke), ineffective (not work well), extractor fan (fan above the stove which cleans the air when you cook).

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