You suggest--rather than a robot, or a cat--that Willard the rat might be the least conspicuous option.

"That's... a good point," Fuse says. "Showing up where they aren't wanted is sorta what rats do. Even if he gets seen, they might not think anything about it."

"It'd be good for recon, anyway," Michelle states. "If we can get a feel for the layout of the place, it could help us hash out a better plan--figure out where vents are an' stuff, then come back with tear gas or somethin'. Find out where the brain thing's bein' kept, all that jazz."

You check on your raven that's still near the church. There's a few drains near the front of the building that seem to lead inside, as well as a large vent fan near the side of the building. There's two main entrances: the front door, and the shipping dock, which is where the telepathic monster was unloaded at. You don't, however, see any windows--it doesn't seem like the building was originally constructed as a church, just refurnished into one.

"We need to figure out how we're gonna get the rat to the church," Michelle says. "When we hit up the club we just sorta... uh, drove the rat there, but we were nervous as hell about it."

Once the rat gets there, you'll need to figure out how it's going to get into the building.

You ask Zene and Crease if they're familiar with the building's layout at all. They shake their heads.

"I visited there, but not for very long," Crease says. "I only saw the front part of it, and I didn't get a good look."

Blobby has a pretty long range, so it might be best to stay as far away as possible. As uncomfortable as it might be for Willard, it might be a good idea to have one of the cats carry Willard close to the church (possibly under the cover of night).

This might be a good idea. See if we can have the cat feign frustration after Willard "gets away" just in case anyone's watching the cat stroll up carrying a rat in its mouth XD

I just got a picture in my head of Willard riding on an RC car with a tiny helmet, goggles and scarf. <3

To be fair... rats do have pretty manipulatable paws... with help of blood guidance, probably could get him to drive a tiny car.

But can he balance on a tiny motorcycle?

When was the last time Willard had a treat? If we're going to send him out into danger, the least we can do is give him a cracker beforehand.

I second this. Treat for Willard!

Would it help at all if Crease got the cleantex effect and tried to at least remember that front part? -v-;

Cleantex? Might not be necessary though. We could probably come up with the same stuff from Willard.
