Why wouldn't rats be allowed as pets? They are most often kept in a cage and aren't nearly as destructive as dogs can be. That is just weird.

Hope you find the owners.

And hope the elevator goes out lol 50th floor YIKES!

I rescued a wild rat once.

I saw the janitor putting him over a fence with tongs... probably poisoned. He was still there hours later.

I syringe fed him broccoli until he recovered.

Considering he was a wild rat he was actually quite accepting of me. (once he got better, at first he really had no choice but to accept me).

Rats are salt-of-the-earth animals.

Fran, it definitely sounds like someone's pet. It's possible it got out of it's cage/enclosure.

Yeah, they can be little escape artists, especially the females! That is definitely a pet. Whether it escaped or got thrown out, I couldn't tell you :/

I think it's an insurance thing.. or just a paranoid landlord thing lol Like all the rats are going to get out and breed and take over and kill us all.

We are on the 52nd floor lol we are the point where it's like..if the elevator goes out...we are all just screwed haha no way I am getting down those stairs.

Amazing view of the ocean though! LOL priorities.

Go door to door on your floor, asking if they've lost a pet, without going into details?

Sounds like the landlord is paranoid of a rat overrun... same reason rats aren't allowed in Alberta.

Oh yeah getting down the stePs would suck... Especially in an emergency but if the elevator was out and i had to go UP... I would sleeP in the dumpster LOL. I would never make it.

SUCCESS!!!! Got a call from a panicked rat owner who lives on the 10th FLOOR!!!

They were bringing their hurricane supplies/groceries in so the door was propped open and they guess she got out of her cage, slipped out, got in the elevator and I suppose someone rode up with her, didn't notice and let her out! LOL

YAY!! HER NAME IS ABIGAIL!! lol now that it's safe I actually held her.. she is quite cute.
I can't imagine how someone rode 42 floors with a rat in the elevator and didn't notice!! HAHA

and holy jesus.. why would she WANT to escape that cage?! lol I went over to deliver her and her cage is this HUGE ferret nation with fleece stuffs and she even has a friend! I'm just glad to is safe and home.. her family was like CRYING, I'm very glad I stopped to pick her up.

Nothing like a little Hurricane Ivan rat adventure lol
