We've been hearing noises in the wall between our house and the garage for a while, and got confirmation today that it was rats. Apparently they chewed their way in through a hole at the end of a rain gutter and got in the garage attic, then got in and have been hanging out under the bathtub. So, not fun. But someone at the university recommended a wildlife removal company that specializes in rodents, and I think that's exactly what we need. (We're also infested with geckos, but that's actually a good thing.) Anyway, it's going to be expensive, but not nearly as bad as I thought.


Fireside Fiction has set up an ebook Hurricane Relief Bookstore. 100% of the profits go to hurricane relief funds in Houston, Florida, and the Caribbean. My book Wheel of the Infinite is available there, with lots of other cool SF/F novels, magazines, and anthologies:

Why are geckos a good thing?

What Martha said - plus, they're adorable! Unless they think you're trying to eat them and ditch their tails as a distraction, which is cool but a little gross. :D

We never had pets, but occasionally while spring cleaning as a kid we'd find little gecko skeletons at the bottom of some of Mom's deeper pottery pieces, which was always terribly sad. :(

Sweet, I've been meaning to get a digital copy of WotI and this is the perfect excuse AND a good cause :)
