Lonely kittens – level 1

28-08-2014 07:00

This happens in England. Someone has fifteen kittens. The person does not want them. The person dumps the kittens. We don’t know the person’s name.

One organisation helps animals. This organisation helps ten of the kittens. The other five are safe, too.

The kittens are not well. They are full of parasites. We hope that they will go to good homes.

Difficult words: kitten (baby or young cat), dump (to leave something carelessly), parasite (small animal which lives in/on the body and makes you sick).

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