5. Rats are nasty critters. They are.

Two years after a severe hurricane hit the west coast of Florida, I rented a garden apartment in Lighthouse Point. During the storm, the roof was torn off the building. I was the second tenent to rent the lovely one bedroom apt on the first floor.

I wasn't there very long when my parrot started freaking out every night. At first I thought she was just hearing the neighbors. Then I found a hole chewed in the cushion of a new sofa.

After telling the management about the problem, I bought a Have A Heart Trap. I used peanut butter on a cracker as bait. For a few days I had a successful rat trap and release program going. When Monday rolled around, I called the realtor. I informed them my next release would be in their office if something wasn't done asap.

Who knew that rats like to nibble on faux suede when there was bird seed available.
