Cat’s Eyes

Cat’s Eyes

Question time!

What does ‘her colour and keen sight were her greatest allies’ mean?

What allows this cat to hunt so well at night?

What has she seen in the room?

What will she do next?

Do you think dogs are more intelligent than cats?

What do cats use their whiskers for?

Perfect picture!

Can you draw a picture of another animal that blends in with its surroundings using camouflage?

Story starter!

In the inky blackness of the shadows, she blended in perfectly. Her saucer-like eyes and sleek whiskers were all that could be seen.

She was deliberately hiding; her colour and keen sight were her greatest allies. What she had glimpsed at the other side of the candlelit room was troubling, and arching her back, she prepared to move in an instant…

Sentence challenge!

Can you think of similes or metaphors to describe the cat?

E.g. eyes fur whiskers tail nose claws ears

how she moves or pounces

Sick sentences!

These sentences are ‘sick’ and need help to get better. Can you help?

The cat waited in the shadows. She looked around the room with her eyes. Her whiskers twitched.
