My Cat Questions & Answers

Word Galaxy

  • Catch – to take and hold something that is moving
  • Fur – the soft thick hair that covers the body of animals
  • Hunts – chases other animals for food
  • Smarter – cleaner and tidier; more intelligent

Question 1: Is Rish male or female?

Answer: In the poem, Rish is referred to as ‘his’, ‘he’, ‘him’; so he is obviously male.  

Question 2: Does Rish have hair or fur? What is it like?

Answer: Rish does have fur. It is white, and it is kept clean.

Question 3: What does Rish do in the house?

Answer: Rish hunts and walks about the house, looking for mice. He also eats in the house and plays in the house.

Question 4: What do you think Rish does outside the house?

Answer: The phrase ‘out to catch’ means ready or on the lookout to catch, and does not necessarily mean ‘outside’. So, we do not really know what he does outside, apart from probably chasing mice.

Question 5: Is Rish clever?

Answer: Rish is clever. We are told that we have not seen ‘a smarter cat’; ‘smart’ here means clever.

Question 6: Write a few pairs of rhyming words from the poem.

Answer: Rish-fish, house-mouse, clean-seen.

Question 7: In your own words, say what Rish is like.


  • Rish is white.
  • He likes to eat fish.
  • He hunts mice.
  • He is very clever.

So, these were the Questions & Answers.
