‘Rat’, he moaned, ‘how about your supper, you poor, cold, hungry, weary animal? I’ve nothing to give you – nothing – not a crumb!’ ‘What a fellow you are for giving in!’ said the Rat reproachfully. ‘Why, only just now I saw a sardine-opener on the kitchen dresser, quite distinctly; and everybody knows that means there are sardines about somewhere in the neighbourhood. Rouse yourself! Pull yourself together, and come with me and forage.’ They went and foraged accordingly, hunting through every cupboard and turning out every drawer. The result was not so very depressing after all, though of course it might have been better; a tin of sardines – a box of captain’s biscuits, nearly full – and a German sausage encased in silver paper. ‘There’s a banquet for you!’ observed the Rat, as he arranged the table. ‘I know some animals who would give their ears to be sitting down to supper with us tonight!’ ‘No bread!’ groaned the Mole dolorously; ‘no butter, no –’No

pate de foie gras, no champagne!’ continued the Rat, grinning. And that reminds me – what’s the little door at the end of the passage? Your cellar of course! Every luxury in this house! Just you wait a minute.’ He made for the cellar door, and presently reappeared, somewhat dusty, with a bottle of beer in each paw and another under each arm. ‘Self-indulgent beggar you seem to be, Mole,’ he observed. ‘Deny yourself nothing. This is really the jolliest little place I ever was in.’
