With the exception of two players, all the kids join hands and form a circle. One person is chosen as the cat and stands outside the circle. The other person is the rat and stands inside the circle. The object of the game is for the cat to catch the rat. The players in the circle can raise or lower their arms to allow the rat to enter or leave the circle. By lowering their arms, they will not allow the cat to follow and catch the rat. If the rat is finally caught, the rat and the cat each return to the circle after choosing their replacements. If the cat does not catch the rat by the time the circle group has counted to 50 slowly, then a new pair is selected.
