There are times when I'm so glad I don't own the house I'm in...
I rent the downstairs apartment of a two-family house just up from the harbor. Last year we got the trim painted, and last week I noticed that some of the paint had peeled away in a big patch near the roof. I started grumbling about inadequate prep work by the painters. I looked up the other day and realized, the paint hadn't exactly peeled. It had been actively assisted.
There's a new family living upstairs. I guess we're technically a three-family house now. I saw three little faces at one point, but only captured the one with my camera.

I'm With You Diane !!! They are just rats with better costumes.
I reckon a RAT HUNTING PARTY is being planned and thrown soon? Somehow I think it looks like a squirrel! I have a recipe for Kentucky Burgoo which calls for a few bushy tailed "RATS". Hehhehhe!!!!

And I have one for authentic North Carolina Brunswick Stew that requires squirrel, (you can add oppossum for extra zest!)
If you've never had it, don't knock it....its actually pretty good. I friend of mine from upstate New York turned me on to it....but this is also the guy who thought that eggs when cooked properly were black...little did he know it was from all of the bacon grease his parents cooked it in!
OMG, how awful! Did that thing eat a hole in your house?!?
Maybe you can smoke them out or something. He is probably waiting to munch your orchids too!
*Gonna kill a wabbit... a wabbit... a wabbit*
Awww... that picture is GREAT Julie! It was a completely unexpected and clever plot twist and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I'm sorry it sucks for you, but well done!
Ah...the critical phrasing is that it's not my house!
I can advise the owner sagely, I can hire whatever mercs are required (at the owner's expense) to fix the problem, and I sleep soundly at night. The little bastards were actually quite cute gazing down on us.
The baby tree rats do leave the nest (much to Tom cat's delight.) I think they're about there now. There isn't as much debris falling down on the lilies any longer. When signs of carnage have fully abated, the holes will be patched.
Orchids remain indoors (hence the crowded space) - I've found our weather too changeable for happy plants. It also side steps the hungry critter problem.
Kirstie, Tom's gonna eat a twee wat, a twee wat, a twee wat... He's quite the good hunter, and very willing to offer his services!
Awwww.... since it's not my house and my sleep disturbed by fearful scratchings... awww, I feel protective of those cuties.... lol
Careful, you might go to jail for aiding in the demise of God's forest creatures. We now know what happens to people fighting for their lives against sea gulls....
