I guess I just tried to ignore that there is a rat in our house.
There are other more pressing deeds to deal with.
However, there is no denying it when the construction workers tell you to take care of it. It scared the shit out of one of them.
hehehe ... can't help but laugh at his dismay, sorry
So, up I go in search of the rat. Couldn't find the little bugger, and all the while the guy was telling me how big he was and that he came from the vents.
don't worry mr. man ... i'm here to save ya!
Funny thing is, last night we heard him in the vents, but we thought it was the smallest of cats on an ad-VENT-ure.
sorry had to say it.
Up the stairs I trod to go find The Mrs. (aka Princess, aka Nook), parading the floor with dirt from one end to the other.
She was in the vents.
But, what we didn't know is WHY she was in the vents. She was a huntin'!!!
She's a pretty good mouser, but by how the construction guy explained it, I'm afraid this rat may be bigger than her.
I went to one place to ask about rat traps and they gave me all kinds of options of killing it.
"Wait, no! I don't want to kill it! Can't we do this in a way that won't hurt it? I just want to bring it to some other neighborhood and let it terrorize someone else!"
like perhaps my ex? mwahahahaha
She looked at me like I was a bit loopy. But damn! I just want him out. Not dead.
They didn't have the 'live traps' and suggested before I even get a trap, I have to find out where it's coming in, or we'll have more.
I don't know about that. I'm thinking, it's a one off. We've never had it before, and I'm sure he's the only one.
Let's hope it's a 'he' and not a 'she' laying babies around.
Anyway, I'm sitting here looking at some lazy fucking cats. For chrissakes!!! Get off your ass and do something!
I'm going to have to go look for holes now. I hope he doesn't jump out to get me. I don't need to be screaming bloody murder again with visions of rapists dancing through my head.
I thought I'd let you know though, 'you' had me worried these last few days, my imaginary friend. I thought you'd left me!
Turns out blogger had an issue and wasn't showing 'you' reading. I'm just glad I had some comments to have me know that someone was out there.
I love comments by the way.
Always feel free to leave word. I feel less lonely in this world when you do.
a huntin' i will go ... a huntin' i will go ... on my way to catch a rat, a huntin' i will go
