Smoking Rat Steals Cigarette And Sets House On Fire
The rats name is “No Name” and lives in Morecambe, Lancashire, England with his owner Nelly Banks.
My first reaction to this stealing was probably to try out what Nelly does many times during the day, “smoke”. But in reality No Name likes to take things from around the apartment and stck them into his cage, he’s sort of a nest-builder.
Now what No Name did this time, he snatched a smoldering cigarette from Nelly’s ashtray and took it to bed with him.
Ideally not the best place to lay a lit cigarette to his “nest” that No Name built and the result was that a fire ensued.
No Name survived the blaze and was found running around the apartment. Nelly woke up around 3 am only to find the apartment full of smoke.
“He’s in the dog house, but I’m too soft to be upset with him forever.” she said about the mischievous rat.
