Saturday night standoff

Never let it be said that Saturday night in the suburbs of our fine capital is boring. Round here, at least, it's filled with drama, tension and intrigue.

Look what I have crouched above the front door (I'm still trying to work out how it managed to get up there): And sitting ever so patiently below: (And I find myself humming this)

Not a mouse, a Rattus Cute-us. I was hoping he would still be there this morning, I could feed him corn (rats' favorites) and we'd be friends forever.

Yeah, right...

It looks more like a little native rat than the common garden type - big eyes and ears. maybe.

I was guessing teenage bog standard rat as it reminded me a lot of the rats I owned in the 80s.

But a native rat would be even better on the cute scale.

Alas I haven't seen my little friend since Saturday night. The good news, though, is I haven't seen a little ratty carcass either so I'm guessing he managed to escape Nibbs' attentions successfully...
