Sadly, “Not an urban legend!!”

“Dear PoPville,

The rats are a real problem. One came into my toilet through the pipes today! Not an urban legend!!

I’m in Mt. Pleasant. I was on a call and heard splashing in my bathroom, which was strange.

I walked in and saw heard it from the closed toilet. I opened the lid, and there it was, just splashing about. I’m on the ground level in an old apartment building and my landlord is helping out but it was a shock to say the least! It was like 330pm. My landlord called pest control and I went to my girlfriends house.”

Ed. Note: Our last report of the unthinkable was in April 2020. Every now and then it happens and haunts my days and nights.
