I will admit. I'm a bit prejudice. I don't like wild rats living in my home. If they live somewhere else, well, that is fine and dandy. In my garage. Not fine and dandy. Much to my shock, I have discovered a family has taken residence. Three down, goodness knows how many more to go.
The shelties are USELESS. It is like they don't even smell that the rats are there. I might need a big Tom cat. Maybe my neighbor will let me borrow theirs. He can live in my garage for a few days.
I even considered staying home this weekend to clean the garage. But alas, I'm going to another dog show. I am home the following week. Hopefully the traps will get 'em and then all I'll have is the aftermath.
What I would give for a good rat terrier about now!
