I was taking the trash out a bit ago and saw what I thought was a dead rat, but when I crouched down by him & said, “Hey, little guy,” he opened his eyes a little and twitched his nose at me.

so I made a little bed for him and carefully put him in it with a chunk of cheese.

idk he just looked so sad and alone, but I think he is dead now. Goodbye, little buddy! May your little nose smell the sweetest of dishes in your next life, and may you eat them to your hearts content.
