Many people think that octopuses are very interesting creatures, but others believe that they are horrible monsters of the ocean! This might be they look quite strange. They have round heads, large eyes, eight long arms and a soft body.

There are around 300 different kinds of octopuses and they lived in our oceans thousands of years. Now, they know many ways to get away from animals which want to eat ! One way is by changing color. For example, they can turn grey to look like a rock. Other animals swim without seeing them! Also, octopuses collect shells and put them outside the places they live. They look a little like gardens!

This also them from animals. And octopuses can do another amazing thing. When another animal eats one of its arms, it can grow a new one !

A good name for Katy's kitten

One day last month, Katy wanted to get a new pet so she went to the pet shop in town to buy a kitten. When she looked at all the kittens in the shop, she couldn't decide which one to choose.

"Which one do you like?" asked the man who worked in the shop.

"It's very difficult," said Katy. "They are all lovely."

Then she saw a little black and white kitten, which was sitting in a corner of his cage, looking like he was sad.

"He's beautiful," said Katy. "But why is he so sad?"

"He was hiding up in a tree when someone found him," said the man. "We don't know where his mother is so we're trying to find him a new home."

Katy opened the cage and picked up the kitten, which had soft fur, big brown eyes and a wet nose. He was very friendly and he looked happy to see Katy.

"I think he likes you!" said the man.

"I love him," said Katy. "I'll take him!" "That's great," said the man. "What will you call him?"

"Well, he's black and white and he likes climbing trees. I think I'll call him Panda!" said Katy.

"That's an excellent name for him," said the man.
