Yes indeed, you can compost rats.
This one made the fatal mistake of irritating my wife by invading the kitchen at night.
Rat. In. Peace.
That’s what you get for eating my pumpkin seeds, vermin.
And of course, I made a video:
Though I didn’t build a full “melon pit” with all the trimmings as described in Compost Everything, this rat will still feed the Seminole pumpkins I planted above its corpse.
Don’t let any potential soil fertility go to waste.
My husband and I joke about the rodent fed pumpkins and how huge the vines grew off of dead squirrel. I have squirrels buried all in my garden. Serves them right for eating my crops and digging up my seedlings. A bunch of rat babies unlucky enough to have been born into my compost bin are under an orange tree. Its a marvelous seed grown two yr old tree
