Rats are awesome little guys. Don't kill them. Why is people's first response to animals they don't like is to kill them? They are just trying to live and they were here before you. They rarely carry diseases and are not what the media makes them out to be. If you don't like rats then relocate them. I have raised and released two orphaned babies and also have a dumbo rat. If you took the time to know them you would love them!

OK, so if they were here before us, that entitles them to a pass?  So, I guess you will be donating your house to a Native American family soon.  In most cases they were treated worse than YOU treat mice and rats.

That's OK I catch all of them and kill them, to make up for an occasional rat/mouse pandering person. 😸
