plot mice? i think not.  
you know what bothers me the most? the rat in my ceiling, having devoured the entire container of ratsac, apparently to no effect, is now dragging the empty box across the rafters and happily setting about making a nest of it.

if only it were a colony of plot mice instead... *SIGH*

in other news, TWITTER seems to be quite cool. not sure i understand it yet, but i'm having fun! thank you flist for adding me :D

That is the stuff good tales are made off.
Excellent plot starter there.

(Please let us know how you win this battle)
(If possible in 6 chapters :D)

*bows head*
Sorry that your plight inspires me.

it's an ongoing saga lmao. last book it was the five foot termite mound in the roof which was disposed of via spraying, squishing and burning.

next up, chapter 2 - elly gets her revenge on WALLrat. (book one was a rat in the bathroom wall which used to get its feet stuck on the duct tape we used to cover a whole before our extensions were done - we'd wait until it good stuck and then whack the wall with a hammer so it'd fall back to the floor.)

Umm probably a little late now but Twitter should come with an addiction warning but it is fun.

We had a mouse problem in our last house - they were climbing into our freestanding pantry and you would hear them scurrying around. The funniest thing was I have a big dog and one night I heard the rustling pulled open the door to investigate, dog of course had followed to see what was going on. I opened the door and there were two mice on the shelf about eye level for the dog, I froze and the dog jumps back and hides behind me as the mice run away merrily across our kitchen floor. I don't think I will be recommending him for a job as a ratter.

Just a question was the ratsack past use by date? Maybe thats why it wasn't effective.

WARNING FAIL! warnings should come BEFORE the addiction lmao!

aww your poor puppy is like ARGH MICE lmao

i think we have superAUSTRALIANrats here that are immune to things like mousetraps and ratsack. perhaps i should put my cat in the roof for a while, she's an excellent rat catcher :D

I agree with the warnings but then we would have no fun at all.

It was at that moment that I realised I had not picked the guard dog of the litter. (But thats ok).

I think it must be superNSW rats cos our last victorian lot went down. Our best rat catching cat has no tail so even though he tends to be victorious there is a lot of falling off things when he tries to balance with a phantom tail.

aww your cat sounds adorable! lmao!

yes well, considering our mozzies are the size of my hand, spiders the size of side plates and ginormous wedge tail eagles on the lawn, it wouldn't surprise me if the rats were tough to kill lol!!!!

your poor puppy - it's not his fault if he doesn't like mice. i'm sure he protects you from other things :D
