Our "tasty" washing machine drain hose

Apparently - Ratticus thought this washing machine drain hose made a particularly tasty snack.

The Demise of Sir Ratticus

I thought that instead of posting the image of the final demise of Sir Ratticus - I would simply link to it - just in case - like my wife - there are people that have no desire to see a picture of a dead rat on their screens.

Click on the link below if you dare!!


Trap Deployment

You can see the pest control guy on the left - fishing around in back of the
hollow base of the cabinet with my trusty three-iron.

Our first picture of Ratticus (03/31/11)

Ratticus eating our washing machine drain hose.

This is the first time I got an idea of what we were dealing with.

I linked it instead of posting the picture - in case anyone doesn't want to see a picture of a rat staring them in the face when they come to the webpage.



If you have made it here to my blog - you've either followed a link from one of my many blog comments, marketing efforts, or you actually bought my short story!!

Regardless of how you came by this blog - thanks for coming.

My intent with this blog is as follows:
  1. Share some pictures applicable to my short story Ratticus: A True Tale from Critter Corner
  2. Give you - the reader - a forum to share your own critter stories.
  3. Hopefully give you a laugh and lighten your day.
