  • put your hand in a garbage bag and pick it up like that then turn it inside out with the rat inside the bag, tie it up & chunk it outside in the garbage

  • Eww I wouldn't want to pick it up but I wouldn't leave it there for 5 hours. So I'd do what the second anon said or maybe use broom and a dust pan to get it up.

  • I would also use a plastic bag over my hand and pick it up. My cat is a heck of a hunter so this is a pretty common occurance at my house. But still pretty gross.

  • I think if you cover your hands your fine but I know if it was me I would wait for my husband to get home because I hate things like that.
