Our contractor could not come out to seal the entry points to our attic until one week after we trapped the rat (as detailed in the previous post).  All was quiet until the night before he came, when we again heard movement in the attic.

As some of my friends reminded me, rats are excellent swimmers.  One friend who lives in Alameda facing the estuary actually saw a rat swim to shore (a day or two after we dropped our critter off on the otehr side).  I wonder if it found its way back.

Since the live trap didn't work this time around, we had to resort to snap traps.  It took a little while, but we now have a rat-free attic again.
