Deb D.

A boy was having trouble with his pet rat that had developed the habit of waking up at one o'clock in the morning and running around in its cage wheel, thus disturbing the boy's slumber. He tried to get help from a veterinarian and pet manuals in the library. Nothing helped. Desperate, he consulted with his magician friend who was accustomed to handling animals used in his act and might know some "tricks" regarding animal behavior. The magician listened to the boy's story and agreed to help saying, "It will be as easy as taking a habit out of a rat."
