Rats....

Yep, that's right...we've got rats!! Not in the house (thank God)....just in my car!!! I dropped off my lovely Armada this morning for a simple check-up and when I picked it up found out that not only was the cost of the 90,000 mile check up a pretty penny BUT that apparently my car has been a home to a rat family. Now, just so you know we LOVE his car and we have had no major issues or problems for the 5ish years that we have owned it. We will buy another one when mine dies. I guess some momma rat loved it SO much too that she brought her family in---GROOOSSSSSSS!!

(Ok, so this guy is kind of cute....)


Now, the crappy part about this (besides the fact that there are rats in my car) is that I have to leave it for another couple of days so that Nissan can totally excavate the thing and repair all of the damage that they caused. We know for a fact that it will be no less than a $700 repair--damn rats! I could have bought the rats a very nice home for MUCH less!! We are hoping that there is not more damage that we cannot see at this point. To top it off, we will have to invest a little more into the after market alarm system that the rats found so delicious. Nissan will not touch these wires but they are clearly destroyed.



I guess I am glad to have kept a rat family warm and cozy for some time----
HECK no, what am I saying. I am seriously NOT o.k. with this....
find another home...
I paid for mine...
AND NO ONE LIKES A SQUATTER!!!!!!

crazy story! i can actually relate as one actually found it's way into our engine...and died. the smell was horrendous. we took it to the shop in plano, unsure of what the smell was and called back later and the guy was like, "yeah, you had a dead rat in the engine...and it wasn't pretty." the smell lingered for months. these rats pics you posted are great, esp. the car.

I am SO glad they didn't die--I have heard that is an awful smell!
