Sadly enough we have a rat in our home, oh but don't worry, it is dead. How do we know this? We can smell it! After our Halloween party (pictures coming soon) we noticed a strange smell in our basement. Actually not in the basement, but in the stair down to the basement. It wasn't bad at first, but a couple of days later it is horrible. The dead rat must have gotten trapped in the wall and died. I cant believe it! My dad, who loves me, is going to cut a hole into our new walls to do some hunting. I am terrified for him. Dont worry, I will not post pictures!
