We have a box turtle that we see occasionally. A few weeks ago we saw it eating some dog food we threw out for the squirrels. It had rained on the food so it was soft. About a week later I saw it trying to crunch a dry chunk. We softened some in water for it and now it comes at about three day intervals for a meal. We named him Archie and call to him when we feed him to see if he will associate his name with food.
My first cousin near Kaw, OK had one named Charlie that had been coming every summer for 14 years. When I was there someone called there's Charlie and she began calling him. He would stick that head up as high as he could to see her then travel at top turtle speed slowing only for other sightings to ensure he was still on course. She fed him a piece of raw beef.
I had a nest of those bushy tailed rats in the ceiling above my kitchen. They got in through a neglected dryer vent. When I took that ceiling down after I exterminated them, a lot of nasty stuff came down with the gyproc. It was a horror show!
