The cats were morally outraged. What fiends were these mice that they would destroy themselves thus? They decided on stronger numbers and increased surveillance.
The mice formed an alliance with a rat known as “rope climber.” He promised supplies. They gave him sanctuary.
Two days later a cat trio was scouting a corner of the warehouse. A crate crashed. Two died. Rope Climber claimed responsibility. The families of the slain cats cried for revenge. A war could not be avoided.
War erupted. Horrible carnage ensued. Nowhere was found a voice of reason. The cats won the upper hand. The mice agreed to a truce. Peace was nigh.
