I used a humane trap. They are annoying as you have to release the b******s somewhere which is a schlep

Turn them into inhumane traps. Do not check them for 48 hours and the rats normally die within 24 hours without food in the traps.
Then remove dead rat (with gloves), double bag, tie, and place in refuse bin.
Re-set and bait trap

I understand what you are saying. Once the poison has been removed from the environment and the borders made (at least temporarily) secure, the fox terrier will be allowed out to go about its business of killing for fun.
And although only 5 months old, the terrier looks really up for killing something,....starting with me.

The adult rat we found was the size of a guinea pig, with a tail around the same length again.

I have a wire-haired fox terrier, but don't want her to get bitten by a rat, because rats carry disease, plus there is now poison in the environment, which could impact rat predators.

I don't count cats as predators as such, because they kill for fun, not for food.

Rat V Cat
My dad and I had a telephone discussion last night over whether a rat or cat would win in a fight. I thought cats always win, as there is recent evidence to support this from our neighbours cat.
My Dad thought that if a Rat lunged for a Cat's jugular, it has plenty of teeth to do the job. Teeth which can go through even concrete over time.
I thought that only happened in James Herbert books, and cats were more intelligent, agile, too big and weaponised to be victorious every time.
thoughts anyone ?

these sound like fictional killer rats that you're talking about. A cat should quite comfortably be able to take out medium-large rats for fun. Ours always have and they weren't particularly hunter-esque cats.

Itís illegal to not check your traps every 24 hours.

Seriously...any time I've had an issue when moving into a new home...the cat goes out kills a few and they all disappear!

Or kill the neighbours.

Pop down to the coast and find yourself a nice big shiny plastic football stadium to set them loose in. Plenty of company for them too.
