“Hurray! We are going on a cruise again!” Tom squeaked excitedly as he boarded the ship after Jerry.
“This time, make sure you lie low and wait for my instructions be…” Tom dashed off before Jerry could finish his sentence.
A sense of foreboding passed through Jerry as he scurried into the kitchen after Tom.
Coast cleared! No human! Jerry heaved a sigh of relief. He scanned the entire kitchen, and finally spotted Tom on top of the table chewing a big chunk of cheese.
Why is the cheese on the table? Jerry wondered.
Suddenly, a human crept up on Tom and caught him by his tail.
“There’s one more!” another human pointed at Jerry.
This is a trap! The humans have been waiting in ambush! Before Jerry could move an inch, a human grabbed him from behind.
“Well done, guys!” the chef thanked the pest controller.
