Rats, Always There

As I returned home after saying goodbye to McMum and McSis, off the the US to see the Fall Colours in New England (they almost had to cancel because of illness), I watched a large animal galloping down the pavement in front of my house. In horror, I realise that it was a rat: fat, swaggering, confident.
Where was the urban fox I heard sobbing in the back gardens a few weeks ago?
Come on mate, get to work!

I initially read that as 'off to the US to see the Fall.' Wow I thought, Mark E Smith has some real fans.....

As for the rat, maybe he had just sprayed a picture of Banksy on a wall somewhere. At least you won't have mice (they tend not to co-exist)
