Ben flattened his body into the corner, desperate to blend into the wall. Before long, the invaders would claw their way into the room.

If only I had killed the first rat that invaded the garden shed, Ben thought. Winter was oddly cold this year and kind-hearted Ben knew the varmint wanted to stay warm. One nest would not matter.

Ben did not take into consideration biology. When the shed could no longer hold the hoard of rats, they looked for a new home.

And food.

Ben begged for madness as he noticed the whiskers chomping on the wooden door.
