Just A Quick Question

Exactly what size dropping do you think a rat would leave?

Call mom, they'll bring the dachsunds over. They like killing rodents.

Glad u made it safe and sound!

I have discovered that frogs have some big...uh,poop. Could it be frogs??? Any chance you could talk yourself into believing that???

Good call, Elizabeth.

I'm thinking it's a squirrel—not a rat. Mame's neighborhood is too upscale for rats...

Kiki,
LOL... I'm thinking "frogs, frogs, frogs" ;)

Eeewwww. :(

Oh my gosh! Ewww. Just the thought of mice and rats gives me the willy nillies. Iggg. Creepy crawlies on my skin.

Good luck with that whole thing right there.

I'm such a girly wimp, eh?

I did some looking up. Mouse poop is about 1/8 of an inch long while rat is 1/2 but they'd look the same.

On the other hand Mame has had chipmunks IN her house before, and we've had squirrels.

The Dachshund is the natural enemy of the squirrel.

Also! There is a new puppy. Carolyn just got hers! It's possibly the cutest thing on four legs.

Elizabeth,
Thanks! You know I did not want to look that up for fear of the accompanying pics!!!
I'm actually off to look for a ruler but my guess is that it is in between... so maybe chipmunk (which is the only choice that wouldn't horrify me!).

Elizabeth said...

yeah, one site I checked had line drawings. I was somewhat disturbed.

I'd go with the chimpunks (erm, chipMONKS I'm not correcting this because Chimp punks seem hilarious!). There was that incident of the time when Mame came home and there was one sitting on the couch, just looking at her. It was never caught so...

I'm sticking with the semi-cute woodland creature infiltrating the house with winter's onset as opposed to vermin infestation.

I'm thinking its a frog and a chipmunk :)

...and SO glad to see Mr. F's comment "too upscale for rats"...I saw a rat (outside not inside or no doubt I would have been out of here) a few months after we moved here and I freaked because call me 'sheltered' and not counting NYC, but I had the impression that you only saw rats in the slum areas so needless to say it was not the greeting I needed when I already thought I had moved to the ghetto! I know my poor husband thought he'd never hear the end of that one!!!!!
