AAAAAGGGHHHH!!!!


At the moment it's just gone 3am and I am sitting in my room with a broom beside me because there is a rat somewhere inside my house! I kept waking up thinking I could hear noises in the house but it was windy outside so I figured that's what it was, then I heard something scrabbling in the kitchen and got up just in time to see a rat run across the floor! Last I saw it was behind the TV in the lounge, and frankly I'm at a loss as to what to do about it. I am TERRIFIED of rats. When I was a teenager my friend's brother had pet rats and I couldn't even bear to look at them, they freaked me out so much.
So for the last hour I've been pacing around the house with a broom wondering what the hell to do. Now I'm just sitting on my bed, hoping doesn't come near me. I won't be going to sleep any time soon, I can tell you. :-(

  1. You're like the mother in "The Drover's Wife"! But with rats...

    I hat rats and mice - I can't handle them either. I feel your pain. We think we have a possum or rat in the roof at the moment. I think calling the pest exterminators is the best move for both of us. Ick!!

  5. Dee!!! I feel your pain! I am horrifically terrified of rats, we had one in the house once and I couldn't sleep... we trapped it in our roommates room and I had towels under my door so it couldn't get in and I stood on the bed crying.

    We ended up catching it, I made the bf put about 5 traps in the room with honey and peanut butter on each one so the sucker would stick.

    I am so afraid that I can't even look at them in movies!
