Subject: Fw: Rats and toilets...I didn't know it could actually happen!
First, rats are very good swimmers. We’re talking about the species that’s been finding its way aboard ships for as long as we’ve been building them, after all. Toilets are no big deal by comparison, especially for animals that can tread water for three days and hold their breaths underwater for three minutes. Narrow pipes won’t stop them, either. Rats’ ribs are hinged at the spine, so they can collapse themselves to fit a narrow passage. If a rat’s head can fit, the whole rat can fit. And, of course, drain pipes can be convoluted, but these are rats. Mazes are their specialty. We can’t win.
