My boyfriend has a rat in his apartment complex. What foods could we leave out for it that are poisonous?
We don't just want to use straight up poison. If that rat is going to die, we'd like it to enjoy its last meal, then give it a very quick death.
I've heard that peanut butter is a big no-no with pet rats because they can choke on it. Do pest rats have the same problem? And what else could we put on the sticky pad for it to be drawn to?
We really don't want to go out and buy poison. It's too cruel to us. And there's no way to trap this guy besides the sticky trap. But if we do catch it, he lives in a city. If we let it go, it'll just end up in another building very quickly (where they might use far crueler methods of killing it). We want to put the poor thing to death as quickly and painlessly as possible (we both love rats...just...not crawling around destroying his apartment).
