Rats do not like ginger cake....

Other · · 16 comments

made an apple pie the other day at work the carer forgot to put it away and when i got in the next morning she showed me that the pie top had all been nibbled away ' mice' she says ' its not mice' says me' they crap everywhere, rats never crap where they feed as it stinks and tells predators where they are, we ll lay a trap tonight and see whats dining on my fine cuisine before we start to worry'... going by the look on her face that might be a bit late lol...... made another apple pie and extra pastry' right' says me ' before you go to bed tonight sprinkle some flour on the worktop and put the pastry in the middle, ' flour ?? ' says she ' yes, says me ' it ll give us a rough idea whats nibbling my pastry'....
Gets in the next morning and yep, the pastrys gone and there s rat.. big ones at that... tracks in the flour, conversation goes a bit like this

Me... yep, its a rat and a big one at that
Her.. what do we do now
Me... we set another trap and then we kill it............. i m a really baaaaaaaad person at times :teufel:
Her.. WE DO.. HOW :boxedin:
Me... we lay a trail of crumbs... wait... then when it comes out...... we hit it on the head
Her.. with what ???
Me... the sweeping brush, trouble is we ve only got one
Her.. (rather bravely i thought considering) ohhh ok i ll use the mop
Me... we want to kill it, not wash it, its ok, the gardeners here today, we ll borrow a sledge hammer that ll work
Her.. HUHHHH
ok by now i d had my fun and laughed and said ' its ok, i know a Ratcatcher he ll come sort it' ... ' ohhhh thank fk for that ( first time i ve heard her swear in nearly a week :jawdrop: lol
Anyway on The Island Manx people are superstitious, especially about Rats and having to call a professional rodent killer and saying ' hey Mike, think we ve got a Longtail here' made me feel slightly ridiculous but as i say, Manx people are superstitious, you either call them Longtails or Joeys , he promised to call round in a couple hours, he turned up, agreed that it was a Rat we had and he d set some traps, it was either that or poison, ' not poison ' says me ' it ll curl up and die somewhere and stink the house up' he agreed and went for some traps
By now the carer is glad somethings happening and she does nt have to yield a mop, or worse, a sledgehammer to get rid of our unwanted visitor she s aking me are the traps humane ' ohh yes, wont feel a thing' says me Mike the Ratman comes back in and asks for cake,or something, now as the damn rat had gulped all the pastry i said we ve ginger cake, made it myself yesterday and i must say i do make a good ginger cake... sorted says he and sets the traps, we re stood there talking and the carer asks ' will the Rat make a noise when its caught' i stepped behind her and i m looking at him shaking my head and mouthing the word NO NO NO he either did nt see me or he relishes his job as a rodent exterminator and said ' ohh yes, it ll squeal loudly' he must ve seen the look on her face cos he replied quickly ' but only for about 10 seconds'
i was waiting for a phone call bout 2 in the morning from her saying she s head a scream lol
anyway that was a couple days ago Mike came in again today.. empty Rat traps he explained that either the Rat had been poisoned somewhere else or it had moved on
seeeee Rats do not like ginger cake.................. fussy bastard :irre:

that's to bad that they don't like it cause that's more for everyone else. let's eat. :hunger:

sends you over chunks of my ginger cake, i m horrified a rat wont eat it, ok, it might recognise its in the trap that s going to break its neck soooooo :rolleyes: ...its a wise little bugger i m guessing lol

on

Rats like fruit, nuts, grain chocolate, peanut butter and bread. If it is a roof rat, they will eat just about anything except meat and fish. If you have products made with orange or mint, they wont go around it at all, what I been told. Setting a trap is good, no odor through the house.

on

hell *SweetCrystal* I don't even buy fruit for myself lol, but this ll be a harbour rat, the house is only about 50yrds from the sea and them buggers will usually eat anything :)

on

Ahhhh ok..sounds like the same rats we have in USA. No matter what kind of rat it is, they carry diseases and contaminate anything including clothes nasty. Just make sure you leave no water around if you ever had to leave bait, that washes alittle of the bait out of their systems, yet they still die.

I swear the best way to get rid of rats forever is to convince the yuppies and trend followers of the world that they're a delicacy and charge ridiculous prices for a meal

on

lol Whtsxrl24 think the yuppies by passed this little corner of the world years ago and the best the trend setters can do here is KFC.....
He s been in nibbling again but he s a tidy little sod.. never leaves any crumbs, my eldest did this cartoon of our houseproud longtail lol
