So, I'm cleaning out my pantry and I come across something suspicious and brown on the ground and I pick it up with a paper towel and it turns to dust and I'm like, wait, was that some sort of large roundish rat turd? so then I wash thoroughly and rush to my computer to look up images of rat turds and more images and more images until I find one that I think might look like the suspicious brown disintegrated thing, hrm, and then read about hanta virus and how to clean without breathing in any poisonous dust by wearing gloves and spraying the area thoroughly with cleanser and letting the wetness soak into the dust for five minutes before wiping it up, making sure to wash gloved hands and then ungloved hands after, and so I did.

It always sounds so CSI at your house. When do you get the lab results?

I had a lengthy discussion with my scientist/most brilliant person alive father, who decided it was not a rat dropping. Did agree spraying dust down was safest way to deal with the situation, though. Whew. You never know. Sometimes he deems me crazy.

I was going for furball but I can be outranked by science. :)

See, it was in a furball. Looked very suspect.

Ewww. I hope that it was just some dirt that was tracked in. Better safe than sorry, though.

No rats inside, though I have seen them outside from time to time. *shudders*
