Not your ordinary Rat.

The battle rages…

I tried to explain to that rat how things go around here. I tried to warn him….

Unfortunately, he didn’t listen to me, and he is apparently not afraid of my human. He doesn’t know her very well. Now any rat in its right mind wouldn’t just boldly come strutting out and touring in the middle of the day.

This guy apparently isn’t in his right mind.

The human was having a nice, peaceful coffeebreak the other day, and suddenly this idiot rat decided to come out and look at her and say hello.

She had an answer for him right away- but it wasn’t a friendly hello. I don’t know if it thought she would offer it coffee and a doughnut, or what- but if it did, it was severely disappointed. Because all of a sudden the battle was on. Coffee sat forgotten on the couch, Sushi flew out of the room (at the pace of a snail)- and I saw that human move faster than a flipping comet, while the broom did things I didn’t know it was capable of.

And still that rat sat staring at her, as if to say, “Give it up, lady. You know you can’t catch me and your cat is too fat to catch me too.”

And the rat looked at me and snickered. He knows I don’t do rats. I do mice, bugs, birds and fish.

He is a nervy little moron. Well, I didn’t feel like taking him on, because I’m saving all my energy for duck hunting at the stream. But since he laughed at me, I told him- “Dude, your days are numbered. The exterminator is coming to get you on Wednesday.”

Then his expression changed- and he ran away. But I have a feeling he’s still around here someplace. And the human won’t rest until he’s history.

Say your prayers, rat.

    1. Oh no- the Humans confirmed it was a rat. My human got the exterminator to come (yesterday)- we are happy!

      I tried to catch him several times- but he keeps going behind our washing machine where even I can get to him. But the exterminator took care of that yesterday. The human discovered that our next door neighbors on both sides- and lots of other neighbors are having the same problem. I don’t know about our other neighbors, but this is the first time in her life that our human has ever had a rat- and she’s determined it’ll be the last!

      1. That’s a lot of pressure on a cat – to frighten away or kill a rat. It was very considerate of the humans to keep you safe and take care of the rat(s) by other means!
