A Rat

The presence of rats can be very disturbing especially when they are in great numbers. Rats carry diseases and once they gain access to your home can cause much damage.

It was such a delight to watch them as they flew, their wings resembled the spinning of a helicopter’s propeller. Both watching and catching them was a favorite pass time which I looked forward to.
