Sometimes when rats and other vermin are trapped improperly, they manage to gnaw off their pinned extremity. Then they usually run about your cabinet, leaving a trail of blood, until they finally bleed out. If they happen to die leaning against the door of your pantry, and if you happen to live in a cheaply renovated apartment where the wooden doors of your pantry weigh about as much as cardboard, the animal may force it open with their weight and plummet, hitting the tile with a moist thud. The sound, if you are a light sleeper, wakes you from your tenuous sleep and you walk into your kitchen, where you find them in rigor mortis in the middle of the kitchen floor. If it can happen to me it can happen to you.

Ah, the rats. This is good as a stand alone image!
