In the book 'Mrs Frisby and the Rats of NIMH' How did the rats get caught by Nimh?

Good question, however, Nimh wasn't a person. Nimh was a scientific research organization. The rats were caught one day when they were roaming and scavenging the streets for food. Because the streets are usually unoccupied on that particular day, the rats were rather careless and unalert. This proved to be a awful mistake, as a bunch of scientist out looking for rats to conduct experiments on in their lab were aware of the amount of rodents in that neighbourhood. The rats were captured by these scientist with traps and nets. They were escorted to NIMH, where they were experimented on.

actuly they werent roaming the streets they were in a farmers trading store type place ;)
