Russian cat saves a baby - level 2

26-01-2015 07:00

A cat in Russia came to its box where it usually sleeps. This time, however, the box in a hallway of an apartment block was not empty. There was a baby inside it.

A local resident heard something so she went to the box and found the cat and the baby. Someone abandoned the baby in the box in the freezing cold hallway. The baby boy was immediately moved to hospital in an ambulance which was followed by the cat.

People say that the cat saved the baby, so it became a local celebrity.

Difficult words: apartment block (a big building with many apartments or flats), local resident (a person who lives somewhere), abandon (to leave somebody).

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