Aw, rats (continued)

Woken unexpectedly at 4.15am by a scurrying in the rafters. Houston, we have a rat problem. I had spotted a tiny poo on the sofa in the meeting room on Thursday. They (the poos, not the rats) must be mounting up by now in the roof and spilling through the gaps in the ceiling. Goodness knows how many (rats, not poos) there must be up there now. And, if one were to be frank (but still Luke), I'd say they were pretty fat from the sound of this morning's rude awakening. More like a lumbering than a scurrying, really. Scurrying suggests a certain lightness of foot.

Or maybe the rat just used your couch as a restroom. Very comfy! Very YUCK!

Luke said...

this is a good point
maybe they have been here for so long they have become domesticated

I'm guessing an exterminator is not an option, huh? Well, NYC always had rats... Just not loving the fact that the are so close to you!

Luke said...

yeah...i thought about that option. i just don't want them dying up there and being slowly microwaved by the heat...
