Are there More or Less Rats now??

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I got woken up by something heavy on my face in a hotel in Vinh. It was a huge rat. A horrible experience.

Kuala Lumpur had its own rat issues. We used to visit a local Vietnamese mom and pop restaurant that we christened the rat house. The rats would run along the perimeter walls between what was ‘nearly jungle’ and the street drains.
Walking in one day, we noticed one rat had been a little slow, and got caught by a car as it tried to exit a drain cover. Cartoon like, frozen in it’s last position for days.

The entire crew used to congregate at this restaurant quite often. On one occasion, two of our younger cabin crew went off to the washroom, as only girls do. Some minutes later, there was an almighty scream, and one of the girls came running out (no mean feat with her knickers around her ankles) and started jumping up and down, crying.
The other girl came out, barely able to stand up, also crying- she was laughing so much.

Apparently, the first girl had just settled in for a pee when a rat crawled out, between her legs!

I don’t know; the rat was healthy, well fed and fresh before it became ingredients!

Just surprised she didn't know there was a rat in her knickers before she went to the loo. :)

I hate rats & there is a-lot in Cambodia.
2017 in Sihanoukville Cozy resort i had huge rat two times in my toilet. I did slighty jump & made bitch like noise when I saw two red eyes behind my toilet seat.
I did plug pipe on the wall after first one, second was mystery. I guess it came trough the toilet seat.

dont seem too bad here. pattaya has far more. the cats and rats seem to just detour each other. I dont think city rats are very edible even for cats
