Details: Rat Sighting
It was Friday morning August 27. I heard a glug glug in the toilet and went to investigate. There was a rat in the toilet bowl. Body was maybe 4-5 inches. I immediately flushed the toilet and he turned around and went down the toilet. Then I flushed it another 4 or 5 times. Then went to google rats in toilets. They also suggested to put dish soap down toilet to get the natural oil off the rat hair so it can't swim well. So I did that too.

Sorry, but our tenants did not tell us about this until Nov. DEP said could be a crack in sewer line that allowed access. Our plumber laughed at that story and said what's new. Suffice to say we have toilet in basement taped shut and not looking forward to rat disruption due to construction.
