Citys Rats Surge
July 21, 2004

Wet rats springing forth from local toilets? Its happening: The rat count in Richmond is on the rise. So confirms the citys public health department.

Weve definitely had a problem with rats, especially in the past few weeks, says George Jones, a health department spokesman. Jones says the problem is citywide, not just in the predominantly affluent aforementioned neighborhoods. Though specific numbers werent available at press time, Jones says that telephone complaints and reports of sightings to the health department have spiked dramatically.

Jones is preparing tips for the public to combat the problem. A lot of times its what people do that makes it easier for rats to take up residence, he explains. Like leaving uncovered trash outside, for example.

But how about rats in the toilet? Consider pouring some bleach, he says.

2. Life IS a circle huh?
Very funny.

I haven't seen any but I got some bleach already this morning. :scared:

"The troop" (the girl cat) has been very good at taking out the mouses (5 so far) but the rats is mean and I'm not expecting "The General" (the boy)to do much more than "oversee operations" and wait for his medals.

7. Cat Dentist?
This actually looks a lot like "The General" and the boy does have a MEAN right hook though I doubt he would take on a dog like that-he has "muscle" to take care of that anyway.



and this looks quite a lot like "The Troop" (she's cuter though)with the same oblivious look on its face.
