I have a problem I would like to share with you. I live nearby a canal, where rats are often sighted. Some neighbours have complained about rats in their homes, and I am now wondering whether I have some in my own.
Yesterday I went to get one of my bags which was on the floor underneath some other bags. Upon getting my bag I found that the bag and its contents and the floor were very wet. I have no idea what the liquid could be and am now wondering whether it could be rat urine. So, as you are the experts I thought I would ask the following:
1) What exactly does rat urine smell like? (I have heard that it is a musky smell, but would prefer a more precise description)
2) How much does the average rat pass when they urinate? (e.g. a few tsps, or half a glass?)
3) Do they always excrete faeces when they urinate?
Thanks in advance, I hope you can put my mind at rest!
