The only way to remove lice was a delousing machine but instead lice were hidden. Lice also produced thousands of eggs within a year.

A disgusting black rat jumped onto biggers pant leg and bit on to it, bigger shook his leg until the rat flew off and then eventually killed it in front of his whole family with a shoe. This rat is important on a few levels. Superficially, the rat shows us the kind of filth and poverty that Bigger and his family are forced to live in.

After many struggles the protagonist along with his friends end up opening up their own small restaurant named “La Ratatouille” and continue to live happily after that. Characters in drama films are usually deeply detailed so that the audience will be able to understand them better. Remy is the strong willed protagonists of the story and is depicted as a young rat that seems to act more like a human for the reason that he seems to connect more to humans.

Remy had even taught himself how to read and prepare food by looking through cookbooks and watching films about his hero Gusteau.
These cats were born away from human civilization, out into the wilderness. They can transmit diseases, and are unhealthier and have shorter lifespans than domesticated cats. Feral cats are able to hunt endangered wildlife, regardless of rarity as well. They are adapted to our ecosystem, and often are abused and harmed when spotted by locals. Feral cats often wander into our neighborhoods and urinate or defecate into unwanted areas such as yards or parks.
The weasel are predators to their own set of preys like the rabbits, mice and birds. They sneak on their prey and when they have their prey right where they want them, the weasel strikes with ruthless efficiency. Annie Dillard describes it saying the weasel “bites his prey at the neck, either splitting the jugular vein at the throat or crunching the brain at the base of the skull, and he does not let go.” (Dillard, Par. 2) The way she portrays the weasel way of killing their prey makes it sound like the weasel is more a wild, murderous animal then a cute little cuddly critter. Compare to Michael Pollan article “Love and Lies” he speaks about the orchid flower and how it deceives male bees by mimicking the appearance of a nectar flower
Throughout the book, the mice have a lot more relation to Lennie than some people may think. As chapters go by, this “big dream” the two friends have is mentioned quite often. That big dream is not only filled with George’s dream of owning a ranch, but it is also made up of many small dreams that Lennie has. The mice in this story represent the smaller dreams Lennie has. Lennie is known to be kind of mental, not the brightest type of person, but big and strong.

She learns not to judge people based on what she hears. For example, the stories and rumors about Boo Radley, a neighbor of hers.“Boo was about six-and-a-half feet tall, judging from his tracks; he dined on raw squirrels and any cats he could catch, that's why his hands were bloodstained—if you ate an animal raw, you could never wash the blood off. There was a long jagged scar that ran across his face; what teeth he had were yellow and rotten, his eyes popped, and he drooled most of the time(Lee 13).”This was a common rumor. The rumors lead her to believe that he is a monster and he kills in the middle of the night. These rumors were false as she comes to learn.
Everyone knows Gordie as a small and a very sad kid, but when he gets closer and more comfortable to the gang, he speaks up for himself and really show them what he is capable of. After the gang was formed, Gordie’s job at the sewage outlet was to grab the cat carcass with a long wooden hook to use it as bait for the rat trap. This action serves as his initiation into the gang in which he is forced to prove himself as a worthy member. That’s where the boys found out that Gordie wasn’t useless at all, he is actually quite strong as well. “Without hesitating, Gordie plunged the wooden hook hard into the centre of the cat’s stomach.
There were usually no restrooms for the workers, so a corner or the floor were utilized as substitutes. The rooms were dark and musty, from a lack of windows. The machines had sharp parts made for crushing meat, which caused fingers and other body parts of workers to be severed and grinded into the meat. Rat infestations lead to rat droppings, rat poison, and rat corpses finding their way into the meat as well. Many of these factors caused food poisoning to reach its highest peak in United States history in the early 1900s.
