Now that is your typical Girlyashu said:We have one rat that jumps all the time... she can get anywhere either by jumping or climbing. She knows the floor and so immediately jumps off the couch, will scale your legs, scales the curtains, but, used to jump from furniture item to furniture item before she discovered the floor. I would say she could do 3-4 feet. I have a lot of expensive things that she has either tried, or really really wants to try destroying. At least on the floor she can't get to my desk, but she has tried to scale my wires to get there. That rat is nearly unstoppable.
