Mitsi the Cat – level 1

23-01-2023 15:00

Mitsi is a cat. She lives at a station in Israel. She lies around the station. She watches people. She sits on ticket gates.

Many people like her. She makes them feel good. However, some people do not like cats. They are afraid of them. They can also be allergic to cats. The station manager knows this. He wants everyone to be happy. He is looking for a home for Mitsi.

Difficult words: ticket gates (a little ‘wall’ which lets you go through only if you have a ticket), allergic to (if you are allergic to something, your body starts to feel bad – your eyes can be red, your skin can be red, you cannot take in air well…).

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