I can’t stand things that signify dirt; crawlies, roaches and rats.
I’m usually miffed when I go friends visiting and I find rats racing, panting and playing up and down in your living room.


I sure would be embarrassed on your behalf.
Don’t judge is one of the old testament commandments, but hey, that could make me not drink water in your house.


Oh dear me, I hate rats.

Scruffy. Smelly. Ugly.

Your environment must be significantly dirty to have them around is usually my thought.

Then one evening last week. Spread out on my couch at home. Lounging lazily and perfectly at peace with myself. I noticed a dash across the room.

Straight outta my bedroom area, a tiny lil tot. An obvious rat.
I jumped up from whence I was, almost with a shiver, rushing in the direction it had zapped to. Dodged under my console. I gave the console a rude awakening, a mightily dirty push. There it was, the poor unwanted soul.
I said to me, this is the end for you. I pushed again, angrily; with thoughts in my mind also saying:

“You’ll be stone dead in a bit”

Then it disappeared.

Did it jump so fast down the staircase I wondered or did it slip in through the round hole bored at the back of the console ?
I searched the kitchen, luckily the door to other areas downstairs was firmly shut.
I hardly open my doors downstairs for one to have come in. I probed and found out it must have come in through the drainage pipe of the bathroom downstairs. Ahhhhhhhh.


This is the fourth day and I’m still on the lookout, searching.
Was it solo and all alone or accompanied ?

The rat has not been seen nor found. Not a single trace ever since.

Asking. Pondering. Wondering.

Where’d he go ?

    There’s more where that came from mehn. I had a similar experience a few months back. And you are right it’s got nothing to do with your environment, those guys just wander around slipping into houses.
    I was shocked when I noticed a mouse in my apartment. Anyways I got fish and garnished it with poison and placed in strategic places around the house, guess how many ate and died? Needless to say I called the exterminator.

  2. I hate roaches more than I hate rats! Lord! Those things are nasty. I remember crying because I found a family of roaches living in my chopbox in school. 😦 That day was just terrible. My friend had to kill them for me. I hate and fear them all at once. Sometimes I think rats can be cute. Lol You know like white mice 🙂 Roaches? Never!

  4. have to say rats are intelligent creatures. they sneak when no one’s around, or everybody is busy. there’s one who had made its way into our kitchen. Dogdog is not successful for days catching the d*mn rat. i suspect it knows that Dogdog had grown fat and slow. And near blind. *sigh*
