A rat in my pantry????

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I was sitting here in the Cat Lounge when I first heard it.... A rustling and gnawing sound. Could it be a mouse? I turned down the TV and went to investigate. It was coming from the kitchen.....from the pantry! The bi fold doors were closed....and it sounded BIG! I was a bit timid about opening the doors....but open them I must!
Lo and behold.....caught in the act....was TEDY! The partial bag of kitty food that I was unable to fit into containers was now spilling out all over the pantry floor....big ole holes in the bottom of it!
Now that i`ve cleaned up the mess I`m trying to figure out how in the heck he closed the doors after getting in there! ?!?!? (Sort of reminded me of myself when I was a kid and would sneak the whole box of cereal into my bedroom!) Is this "like mother like son"?

I can't stand mice or rats never really seen a Rat, but a Rat by far is better then the snake I found in my pantry several years ago Scared the sh** out of me, I had a little persian and he took a swipe at it and flung that snake right at me, I ran out of the house and would not go back in till my hubby came home Bad thing was is that we never found it

That poor, starving darling! Jamie has managed to help himself, too, and is always very sneaky about it.

Our kitties tried that too! With a brand new bag of food! I'm glad it wasn't a mouse! My potholder thumb bears evidence of something micelike being in my house! Also I found other 'evidence'! I hope my 2 are good mousers, I havn't found any other evidence lately though.

Here are the lyrics!

There's a rat in mi kitchen what am I gonna do?
There's a rat in mi kitchen what am I gonna go?
I'm gonna fix that rat thats what I'm gonna do,
I'm gonna fix that rat.

When you open your mouth you don't talk, you shout
And you give every body the blame,
But when they catch you up,
They will shut you up
And you got no one to blame

There's a rat in mi kitchen ....

When you out on the street,
You practice lies and deceipt
And you scandalize my name
But when I catch you up
I'm gonna pull you up
I'm gonna check-out inside your brain

There's a rat in mi kitchen ....

When yo deh pon the scene,
You make everyone scream
Because they know your so unjust
But when they catch you up
They will kick you up
Because you someone they cannot trust

There's a rat in mi kitchen ....

You invade my space
Make me feel disgraced
And you just don't give a damn
If I had my way
If I had my say
I'd like to see you hang

There's a rat in mi kitchen ....
