After a few rat free years I have discovered one has been in my garage very recently. :( Evidence:- CCs and my fat ball stock has been nibbled :(

Has the thing managed to nibble through a steel container to access the suet balls ? Or are they laid out in an enticing and encouraging display ?
Just askin' ....... :rolleyes:

Due to an oversight by the management team that organises the bird feeding arrangement the said balls were left where a visiting rat could easily locate them. I have had a stern word with the individual involved and he has assured me it won't be repeated. As he is loyal, dependable and an all round good egg I have decided on this occasion to take no further action. Too soft hearted some would say but I think on this occasion he has learned his lesson. :nod: :thumbsup:

Aaahhaaahh - having forensically dissected Jacksparrow's Agatha Christie-like response to my well-aimed accusation, I conclude that he is speaking in the third person of himself :nod:.
Oooooh yes, it is !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You completely deserve your little furry visitor whose expectations you have heightened, albeit accidentally. In Nature's name, shurely you must now take it under your protection and care for, nurture and play with it when it gets bored. Otherwise you'll destroy its trust in human nature and worse still, give it a complex :eek:.
Some folk like Rattus as pets and you can expect as a reward lots and lots more happy Rattusii 'cos they are very (VERY) social animals.
Madame la chatelaine du Le Chateau will be etre aux anges ( :P ) avec joie, innit.

Funnily enough the staff were very keen to adopt the Rattus and offer it a cosy billet for the forthcoming winter but Madame la chatelaine du Le Chateau felt we had more than enough mouths to feed already and vetoed the idea. Further more the Staff have been warned that any repeat of the accidental feeding could result in disciplinary action :smack:
