Just found out, it's tomorrow morning. Invite only.

I'm going to go up there this year, after everything settles and do my own graveside service with my cousins. Fuck it.

My dad died of sepsis last week. He was 87 and had a few health problems, but nothing insurmountable. But the week prior, he'd fallen and went to the hospital where they found a pus pocket behind his glottis. He was sent home and seemed to be not great, but ok. But then he passed.

Unfortunately, because of family drama and weirdness, I don't know when the funeral is (they are having one-covid style). So I can't even try to go or zoom in.

We tried. They ate it and it didn't kill any of them. Not sure if it was bc the species is different. They were black rats, rather than the big brown rats you see in cities. But first we did snap traps: nope, they were too smart. Then poison and they had a nice meal. Then the glue traps cleared them all out in about 48 hours. It was parents and six juveniles.

ETA: I found myself wishing I'd had a Russell terrier or a border terrier. These would have been too big for Leo. I even floated the idea of putting a king snake up there, but mr said no.

We put the ones we caught in a bucket of water.

I felt HORRIBLE using glue traps to catch the roof rats in our house, but we could hear them chewing and gnawing our house apart. Raisins did the trick. Most were alive when mr checked on them, so into a bucket of water they went.
