... okay, just SAW one of the rats for the first time. It probably doesn't bode well for me that my first thought was "Awwww, it's so cute!" OR that it immediately cheered me up. My fondness for animals will one day be the death of me. Time to go to Wal-Mart and get a no-kill trap, since they've obviously ventured way, way out of my bathroom by this point. There are thousands of places nearby where I could release the critters and they'd be fine. I just have to hope I can catch at least most of them within the next 3 days, as I'm not putting out the trap while I'm back in Houston - they'd starve to death.

Those traps are crazy. I remember when we first moved in to the house my family lives in now, we had a big rat problem (old house, lots of room above the ceiling, etc.). We got a trap or two, caught some of the buggers. Unfortunately, we caught one of them just before it rained really heavily and our backyard flooded - meaning by the time we could GET to the trap, we had one very dead, bloated rat. I was simultanously sad, grossed out, and fascinated. I should probably not be released upon the public. *foams at mouth*

Edit: ... I have named the rat Norman.

There is no hope for me.
