Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

This morning we found a dead white rat (someones pet I'm assuming) in the back yard. It had puncture wounds to the chest and I'm assuming Nicky did it, since she has the highest prey drive and tries to kill all small things! I'm not terribly worried since it wasn't eaten in any way, but I can't help but feel a little concerned if the rat may have gotten into some poison. Should I be worried?

I am not sure a rat that is poisoned would make it that far into your yard. Does your neighborhood have a rat problem? If not, people probably don't leave out poison. Just my assumption.

Also, I buy white rats as feeders for my snake (please no one bash me for it). Anyways, I have lost 2 mice over the years and both times my cat got it for me. Just wanted to let you know often whites are feeders, in case that makes you feel better about the pet thing. Smile

No, I've never seen a rat at my house before. We did have mice in our garden shed and I know some of the neighbors use poison for that. We do have a Petco less than a mile from my house, so I guess it's a possibility one could have escaped.

Since it was not eaten you should be ok, keep an eye on her.
