Lonely kittens - level 2

Lonely kittens - level 2

28-08-2014 07:00

Somebody in England dumped fifteen kittens in a suitcase. All of them are about six weeks old. We don’t know who dumped the kittens because there was no security camera.

The kittens are probably not from one litter because there are so many of them. An organisation which helps animals is taking care of ten of the kittens. The rest is at a private boarding establishment.

Right now, the poor kittens are full of parasites, but we hope that they will go to good homes.

Difficult words: dump (to leave something carelessly), litter (a group of baby animals born to an animal at one time), boarding establishment (business which houses people’s dogs or cats).

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