They looked up in the attic yesterday (pest control) no sign of a rat.Did you catch rat kata:-)
There had been one we know that. They left trays of food and will come back next friday, if its not eaten then no rat. They will keep returning till no food eaten, no damp urine patches.
Then my bedroom celiling will be replasterd and repapered.
Keeping fingers crossed, I am still stressing. Iwashup after all meals, I have any rubbish trapped in a box with a lid till late evening when it goes in the black bin outdoors, all paperwork is in them plastic storage boxes with lids, newspapers in the blue recycle bin outside.
