I went to Morgantown and back today (about 2 1/2 hours each way) to pick up Weston from first summer session at WVU. When he left six weeks ago, he took a vole with him that he found while doing yard work. He came back with a rat.
He bought the rat at a pet store in Morgantown as a “buddy” for the vole. Unfortunately, the rat promptly killed the vole. (Let that be a lesson to you.) So now he has a rat. Which he brought home. Which means THERE IS A RAT IN MY HOUSE.
