Late last night Ted and Blizzard woke up Ducky and Pembleton. They couldn’t sleep because they were hearing scary noises coming from the kitchen. Ducky and Pembleton gave Ted and Blizzard a drink of water and told them that the noise was probably just their imagination. They told Ted and Blizzard to try to go back to sleep.

While Ducky was trying to go back to bed, he suddenly became aware of strange crunching noises in the kitchen. Pembleton heard the noise too. Ted and Blizzard were too scared to move, so it was up to Ducky and Pembleton to find out what was going on.

They turned on the light in the kitchen and opened the cabinets. Right under the kitchen sink, they were surprised to find Rumplestiltskin.

“Whoa! How did you get all the way to Israel?”, Ducky asked. Rumplestiltskin explained that all “mice” know about a transatlantic sewer pipe that they can use to travel around the world. Rumplestiltskin had missed Ducky in Texas and caught a whiff of his scent and followed his nose right to Ducky’s new home in Israel.

Pembleton was a little annoyed that Rumplestiltskin came without even warning them, but Ducky was so happy to see his old friend that Pembleton tolerated the visit.

One night while sleeping, Ducky heard a noise. He noticed a dim glow from the kitchen. Someone was looking in the fridge. He woke Pembleton up and told him he saw a light in the kitchen. Pembleton looked over, saw nothing, and told Ducky go back to sleep. Ducky was sure he saw something. Then he heard crunching noises coming from the living room and whispers of his favorite sitcom on TV. He woke Pembleton up again. This time Pembleton was super grumpy, heard nothing, and told Ducky he better go back to sleep.

The next morning, Pembleton went to get his favorite morning treat- Raisin Bran, but there were only crumbs inside. Pembleton knew Ducky didn’t eat his cereal, because Ducky hates Raisin Bran. Then Pembleton heard a whimper. Someone had eaten Ducky’s favorite cereal too! In the living room, they noticed the pillows and blanket on the couch were rumpled.

Convinced someone must have snuck into the house the night before, the boys came up with a plan. Pembleton got a cardboard box and cut out an eye hole for their stakeout. They would stay up all night, to catch the cereal thief.

Later that night, while Ducky was snoozing in the box, Pembleton, struggling to stay away, heard a noise. He poked Ducky, “Shh, be quite Ducky, someone is in the house.” They both stood very still and looked out the peep hole. Then they saw the intruder, a fat little rat wearing a green felt hat with a feather. They tip toed their box closer, before jumping out and wrestling the intruder to the ground.

“Who are you? And why did you take our food?” shouted Ducky.

“I mean no harm. Please don’t hurt me”, whimpered the little rat.

“We won’t hurt you, but who are you?” Pembleton said trying to calm the little guy.

“My name is Rumpelstiltskin, and I’m just a lonely, hungry mouse.”

“A mouse?” Ducky and Pembleton said skeptically in unison.

“Yes, a mouse, without a house or food or family! I like coming to your cozy house, because you have good snacks and cable.”

“You know you didn’t have to sneak in.” Pembleton said. “All you had to do was ask.”

“Really?”

“Really” said Ducky. “But we need to know, so we have enough snacks for everyone.”

From then on, Rumpelstiltskin came to visit every night and Ducky and Rumpelstiltskin became fast friends often making mischief together. Pembleton, was a little slower to warm up to the “mouse” in their house, but eventually he became friends too.
