Doity rats

Scratchy noises in roof was keeping us awake, so operation 'sleep through the night' was sprung into action.
Whilst decanting nuggets of tasty rat poison in little feeding bowls the boy asked what we should do with the tub (budget bumper bucket bought as we are country folk). I said perhaps leave up in the loft if / when we need to put more out.
"but what if the rats eat the whole lot ?" I questioned, the boy answered "well more fool them".
Classic stuff.

  1. Do rats like Mars Bars as much as their ickle mice buddies? Dad's favourite tip for catching the blighters, until they wised up and learnt how to escape the humane traps, sugary treat in claw - damn those doity rats!
    Useless thought of the day - If we were in Australia, that scratching would be a possum!
