March 23. Day 82. Rats!

Rats! I'd hate them even if they weren't responsible for carrying the fleas that spread plague. Actually, rats are just fine if they stay away from me. But this one rat decided to push its luck scampering through the house with gay abandon. Well unless you pay rent Ratus Ratus, that's not going to happen. Besides you were turning Rumple into a total ratbag. He managed to get the rodent cornered behind a bookshelf that once lived in my grandfather's newsagency and he ran from one end to the other to try and evict the rodent. No luck (and no sleep due to the incessant barking and scratching). So it was time to call in the big guns. Enter Shaun Nevitt of Peter the Possum and Bird Man. This straight talking bloke was on to the problem like a rat up a drainpipe. One rat eliminated. Four traps set and 20 minutes later he was gone. Best $198 I ever spent
