Rodents that stealthily invade a home,
Agile and able to crawl through tight spaces.
Troublesome pests that chew holes and leave droppings,
Scurrilous scavengers with beady-eyed faces.

For Andrea Dietrich's Four Letter Word Acrostic contest.

    That is a rat and hate the nasty creatures. Thank you for my placement on your contest for the road trip. It was a terrible trip and so hot we nearly died each day. We also had a camera melt on the back window. Never knew it could get so hot. love phyl

    My boys had pet rats about a year ago, smarter and cleaner then hamsters. I'm glad they didn't want more when they died though. Terrific write and win! Hugs
