Tuesday Rats!!

Oh Dear!!!! Think we got rats or something in our garage!!!  I always keep my potatoes in the garage because its dark and cold - the other day I went to get a potatoe - no potatoes!! Carrots were in the box but not potatoes - the carrot had a distinct tooth mark in it!!! Thats horrible!!! 

Anyway two nights ago John and i decided to put just one potatoe in the garage to see if it disappeared.  John thought I might have just forgotten that I'd used all the potatoes! Anyway, first night the potatoe still there next day - but, however, this morning potatoe gone!! OH NO! That's not good - so something is getting in the garage - hate to say the word!  The garage is integral and Im worried that the nasty thing can get in the house although John says it couldnt. He said he will clear the garage out at the weekend and try block off any gaps - there is a gap under the garage door -the mystery is though that no scraps are left at all - there are no traces of any droppings or anything like that. My washing machine is in the garage - my chest freezer is in the garage!! IM NOT GOING IN THERE TILL I KNOW ITS SAFE!!!

Also the boys have heard some strange noises in the roof - well surely it couldnt get in there as well!!! OHHHHHH NOOOOOOOO I DONT LIKE IT!!!

Prefer my animal world on animal crossing - I've got an orange tree now!! YAY!! I've also got a hairdresser's and an upstairs in the shop now!! I had my hair done and it cost 3000 bells - expensive but it looks lovely!! LOL

Have a good day.

Love Laine xxxxx

I'd leave a potato in there injected with rat poison Laine. They could possibly get into the roof but when I had a house I used to often lay in bed hearing noises up in the loft. It was birds which nested under the eaves and got in there, I hope it's the same in your case! Jeannette xx  http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels/

don't jump to the conclusion that it is a rat.

Laine hope John clears the Garage and blocks up any gaps don't want them getting anywhere near coming indoors ~ didn't know they ate potatoes but then I suppose they eat anything if they are hungry ~ Ally

It's such a shame you can't post any pictures of your animal crossing!!  Ooo er at the garage problem.  Perhaps it's something bigger than rats ~ but it sounds like maybe they live in the garage if you can't find any scraps!!  I hope you get it sorted xx
