Synopsis: The sequel to Willard. Ben and his rat friends find themselves outcasts and so he befriends a lonely boy (Lee Montgomery) but it’s destined to be a doomed friendship.

Kitty Cameo: In the beginning of the film the police have cordoned off Willard’s home. Two policemen are left to patrol outside. Ben watches as one of them walks the perimeter and hears a noise. It turns out to be a black cat in the bushes.

The officer sets the cat down and it scratches at a door, wanting to get into the house. When the officer opens the door the cat runs inside and starts scratching at a crack between boards on a wall. Behind the wall are countless rats.
