Any ideas?

Alright, here's the situation: I keep waking up in the middle of the night to this scratching sound.

It seems like it is coming from above my ceiling. Imagine a long fingernail slowly and deliberately going at a piece of plywood and that's about what it sounds like. The only thing that brings to my mind is the ghost story you hear in elementary school about the escaped lunatic who was found on the roof of the girl's car slowly scratching his way through the metal roof... as a girl, and the driver of a canvas top convertible, that always left me feeling a little uneasy. Now, as the girl trying to sleep, it just irritates me.


Rat? Tuko lizard? Crazy lunatic guy?

The world may never know...

It sounds like a rat. So sorry but if it helps, I have the same problem in my home in NE Florida :)

ha, yeah, you're probably right. I mean I know there are rats running around... my favorite being Clyde, whom I've never seen but have heard runnng by, and must be the size of a clydesdale. As long as we keep it on a hear only, see no basis for the next month, we'll be good!
