1,000 rats found in Petaluma home

Oh Rats!
Petaluma animal control workers expected to find a horde of cats when they knocked on the door of a 67 year old man whose neighbor complained of stench. Instead, they stumbled onto a scene straight out the movie, "Willard."

About 1,000 pet rats -- ranging from 3-year-old adults to little, pink newborns -- shared the one-room house with Roger Dier.

Dier kept nearly all of his small furry friends in about 20 huge cages that he lined up around the room. About 20 of his rats were running around loose, said Nancee Tavares, Petaluma Animal Services manager.

He also shared the place with seven cats.
