The world’s oldest cat – level 2

02-12-2022 07:00

Flossie the cat is 27 years old, which makes her the oldest cat in the world.

Flossie was born in 1995, and she lived with other stray cats in Merseyside, UK. One woman felt sorry for the cat, so she took her home. 10 years later, the owner died, and Flossie moved in with another member of the family. 14 years later, the new owner died, too, and Flossie went to cats protection, where people look after cats. These people knew how to care for old cats.

Recently, Vicky from East London adopted Flossie, and she didn’t even know that she was the oldest cat in the world. The cat is deaf, she can’t see well, and she has only three teeth. She still has a healthy appetite, she is friendly, and she likes to learn new things.

Difficult words: stray (lost or alone), deaf (not able to hear anything), appetite (a feeling that you want to eat food).

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