Episode 2 – Jason, the Hungry Cat – April 2019

Hey there. This is Maria from English without Fear. Today I’m going to tell you a story about Jason, the hungry cat. So listen, watch and just try to understand as much as you can. 

Jason is a cat who likes food. In fact, Jason is a very hungry cat. One day about 4:30 PM in the afternoon, Maria gave him some food. She gave Jason his dinner. 

What did Jason eat? What did Jason, the hungry cat, eat? He ate dry cat food. He ate his dry cat food very quickly. He ate so fast that he finished his dinner in less than one minute. Why did Jason eat so quickly? Why did he finish his dinner in less than one minute?  He was very hungry.

Jason, the hungry cat has two meals a day. Maria feeds him in the morning and she feeds him in the afternoon. He eats his first meal, breakfast, around 6:30 in the morning. He eats his second meal, dinner or supper around 4:30 in the afternoon, 4:30 PM. And after dinner he gets dessert. What is dessert for a cat? What does Jason, the hungry cat, eat? Well, Maria shakes some cat treats on the floor. More dry cat food — cat treats. And Jason gobbles the cat treats up. He gets about 8, 9, 10 little pebbles, little cat treat pebbles which Maria calls dessert

After dessert. Jason, the hungry cat normally waits for Maria to come into the kitchen and start cooking dinner. He knows that after dinner he will get ‘Licky-licky’.  He will get to lick the plates and he likes that.

But one day last week, Jason, the very hungry cat did not get ‘Licky-licky’. In fact, Maria did not come back into the kitchen to start dinner. What did Maria do? Maria left the house with Mike. After giving Jason his dessert, Maria did not cook dinner. Maria did not put down a plate to lick. Maria was not there. This was a problem. Jason was hungry. So what did Jason Do? He hopped up on the counter and he sniffed around for some food, but he didn’t find any food. He jumped over to the other counter and walked up to the stove top. He sniffed around for some food, but there was no food. He walked across the stove top. It was a good thing the stove was not hot! Or he would have burned his paws. Hot stoves are dangerous, 

He walked up to the sink, but there was no food in the sink. So Jason hopped down off the counter. He sniffed all around the kitchen. He sniffed in the pantry where the dry food and the cans are. But there was nothing to eat, nothing to lick.

So Jason, the hungry cat, lay down and waited. A few hours later when it was dark, Maria came home with Mike. Did she go into the kitchen? Did she fix some food? Did Maria put down a plate for Jason? No!  Maria walked past the kitchen into the bedroom. 

And never came back into the kitchen. Poor Jason. Jason went to bed without any more food. Jason was a hungry cat.
