Rats die

lately we've had a bit of a rat infestation. We hear them running around in the attic, probably hunting for geckos. We like geckos, they eat mosquitos. We don't like rats. So, we waged war on the rats. Putting up the first trap baited with sweetpotato (aka kaukau) and peanut butter it wasn't ten minutes before I heard the trap close shut.

We've disposed of 4 rats in a 20 hour period so far! You may say 'disgusting' but actually we're all in 'hunter' mode and it feels like a pretty good haul. We all slept well last night, not hearing the scuffling sounds of critters up over our heads.

Yeah okay maybe the fact that hunting rats excites me is further evidence that I'm meant to be here and do this job. (-;
