The Rat Lady



Maddex Gurley, contributer

Rats eat lots of things, that’s why they are in your house, to find food. Here is a list of foods they eat. Most rats like berries like strawberries, blackberries, cranberries, gooseberries and most of all blueberries. They also eat seeds and other pet food. A rat’s favorite food of all time is not cheese; its favorite food is ranch sunflower seeds. 


I recently got to interview a rat lover. Here is what she said.

Q1: When did you start liking rats? Why?

A1: probably 4th grade because the dog reminded us of rats.

Q2: What is your favorite type of rat? Why?

A:2 I like dumbo rats because it is the same type of rat as Remy from ratatouille.

Q3: Are there any rats that scare you? Why?

A3: The rats that go into people’s houses because they are not welcome to go into people’s homes.

Q4: What is your least favorite rat? why?

A4: I like all rats because they are all cute.

Q5: Do you have a rat? Do you want one?

A5: If you consider my dog a rat, but I would like an actual rat.

Thank you Lucia Hernandez for letting me interview you and letting me take your time for the interview.


Here is why you should remove rats from your house. They eat up all the crumbs on the floor and make a bunch of holes in your wall. Make sure to get them exterminated. Rats also carry many diseases and sicknesses. That’s why you should get rats out of the house and in the dumpster.


 Make sure to call an exterminator and get them removed. If you happen to see one, don’t jump up on the couch, just trap it and hit it with a broom. Thank you Lucia for telling me and the reader more about rats and to not be afraid of them.
