See how clean my kitchen is? It always like this, all the time! I rarely cook mind you. So how to believe?
It took me 10mins to calm myself and ok, lets run it down!
We opened the backyard door and made a barrier between the kitchen and the living room so that it won't run to the hall. Then I sprayed lotsa Serai Wangi to the corner that I don't want it to run into (and Serai Wangi penipu, it didn't work)
MrComot looked very idiotic with broom at one hand and Ridsect at another hand. Gila ok. Macam nak pergi berperang and macam lah the rat is afraid of ridsect ish ish ish. Later that I know MrComot is also afraid of tikus!!! OMG. Sorry hubby, you looked funny ok.
We managed to push him out from the back of the microwave only to find out that it was a very very bad move!!! The rat was freaking out and it ran so hard here and there and even cross to the hall!! And it ran on my foot!!!! Arghhhhhh. I was holding a small LED torchlight that time, siap tercampak across the hall okkk.
It then climbed the curtain and hiding behind the railing. And we were freaking out too because we want it to get down but afraid of it will fall down on our face!! Seriously, I was creaming at my highest pitch most of the time. The neighbour must be thinking that we are having some kind of domestic abuse :P
The place it secured himself - behind the microwave.
We finally managed to bring it down (I smacked the curtain with broom) and it ran to the 2nd storey!!!
We were racing with it and luckily all the bedrooms' door is closed. I can see it pushing its body to get under the door! Then the war continue at the family hall. MrComot instruct me to get into the bedroom and lock myself as I'm not helping. I don't know how it got down but it went down finally and secure himself back at the microwave *sigh*
Finally after battling with it for about an hour, he voluntery go out through the back door and we locked it with a big PHEWW~!
We were sweating and I can see some tompok-tompok hitam all around the corner of the house and tell you what, the rat was scared shitless that he terberak-berak, no kidding! OMG...kesian dia ok, but sorrylah, I takut tikus okkk.
We had no-mood dinner after that in our bedroom. MrComot was mad with the rat. I was upset because I feel it shows that my kitchen is not clean enough.
MrComot being MrComot, gigih went to 7-Eleven to buy Dettol and mopped the whole house with it. Kosserrrr okkkk!! I just lied on the bed watching TV hehe.
After a while, I quickly phoned up my mom and told her the whole thing. According to my mom, it is not necessarily for rat to be in dirty kitchen. It can be in clean kitchen as well if it serves the right purpose (ie: safe place for it) and according to my mom, we shouldn't race him out. We should just open the door and let it go on its own after a while. Normally he will go out in the morning the same way he came it. Mana lah tahu!
After that, MrComot and I were discussing why and when he came and we have a theory. We left the backdoor opened 3 days ago and it was raining heavily that time. Then we went up until night, totally forgot about the door and just close it later of the night. So the rat might came in to find a warm shelter due to the heavy downpour and settled himself beind the microwave! Clever boy!!!
Luckily our house is still empty. Else it will be a nightmare for us to find or chase him out. Or worse, we might only realise its existence after coming back from Japan!! That time wire will be eaten to pieces ish ish ish.
This is a very humiliate and chaotic experience and I won't let a rat come into my house again!!
