Ginger finds a home

There is a little ginger cat who lives on his own in a patch of weeds at the bottom of a garden. He is very thin and always hungry. But one day, the little cat comes back to find something – and someone – waiting for him.

Listen to an audio clip

If you move your fingers upwards you will find the top of the bin. Go to the left and you will be able to find the cat. We can only feel the back half of him as his head and front legs are inside the dustbin. What do you think he is doing? I think he's hungry and searching for food. Feel all over the cat. Can you find his back leg on the corner of the bin? It is very thin. We cannot see his other back leg as he is side on to us. To the right a little is his body which is also quite thin. If you follow the curve of his back heading upwards, you will be able to feel the cat's bottom and then his very long thin tail which is pointing up in the air.
