Angry Cat – level 2

06-04-2023 15:00

Something unusual happened to an American family.

Their seven-month-old baby was attacked by the family’s cat. Luckily, the baby was not seriously injured. It only had some scratches on its forehead. However, the family was trapped in the bedroom for some time, as the cat wouldn’t let them out.

The cat is a large Himalayan. It weighs 22 pounds (10 kilograms) and it has a history of violence. The family didn’t know what to do, so the man called the police, and the cat was contained. The family is now considering what to do with the cat.

Difficult words: Himalayan (a very large pet cat), violence (attacking and hurting somebody), contain (stop or control), consider (think about).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What might be the best way for the family to proceed in regards to their cat?
