Building a rat cache is rather simple. Here are the needed supplies:
- Rubber rat
- Micro Cache container
I've seen the attachment go several ways. If you purchase a rat that is hollow, you can cut a hole on the belly and insert the container inside the rat. If it isn't hollow, look to see if there is a space between the paws where you can slip the container (this might be where an adhesive would be valuable). Unless it is a bigger rat, a micro is the best size for a container.
For hiding spots, try to find a good hole at the base of something, be it natural or manmade. Up in a tree just seems less natural than on the ground. Most of the time, the rats will be black or brown but I've seen white and gray ones before. The darker ones will be easier to blend in, and if found in the dark, are more likely to startle someone. The first time I saw a rat cache, it made me hesitate before reaching for because I was looking at night.
There you have it. A simple halloween cache. Next up...the skull cache.
