Ding Dong the Rat is Dead!
Several weeks ago, on one of my many routine loads of laundry, I discovered that Wesley wasn't the only little critter pooping and peeing in our house. I was horrified to discover that some sort of rodent had taken up residency in our basement (cross our fingers he didn't travel anywhere else in the house).
Well, several traps later...with the help of peanut butter bait (don't believe them when they say it's a baitless trap- it didn't work)- the RAT is dead. Jane and I had to follow the blood trail to find him back behind the drawer of our dryer. My skin is crawling at the thought of it!
I thought we might have a "Lady and The Tramp" moment on our hands...but we don't have a dog!
I tried to select the least graphic photo...sorry if this is still too much for some of you. But if it's not enough...please let me know and I'd be happy to show you some from our personal collection ;)
