Scratching in the walls
Hi there. I was browsing the internet in search of help and I stumbled upon this site. I found alot of similar problems to mine but none quite the same.
I rent an apartment that's on the last floor of a centennial house. It's clean and all, but quite old. I find that the isolation is a myth! And I'm of course close to the attic. Anyways I've started hearing scratching sounds coming from my walls. I started at one of them and tonight (after rationalizing I was hallucinating... so much for that!) I heard it clearly in a corner wall close to the door to my patio. It's scratching, but no sqeaking. Plus it's not frantic, it's more like little by little. It will go quiet than start again, and usually in the same spot that is until recently. Now every little noise has me on edge to find a critter, but I realize it's an old house so you do get noises.
The big mystery is: I found nothing that points to mice or rats inside the apartment! No droppings, no nibbling, no rummaged food or anything else. I'm just weary I'll wake up with a critter infront of me one night (and I will go berzerk until I catch it and kick it out!).
Any ideas? Am I on borrowed time or is it okay? You see it's not my house so I'm limited in my actions...
