... a Jack Russel Terrier. They were bred for ratting. Rats are too big for cats. Cats only deal well with mice. Jackies are fearless.

Anyway, for vermin, call the health department and get an inspection. They can force the LL to call in an exterminator, or do the work themselves and bill the LL.

: I am filing an HP Action against my slumlord for lack of services. I have been suffering for years and I want to sue for suffering and cost of repairs. I had to buy 4 cats over the past 5 years as a remedy for the rats in my building and apartment. What can I actually sue for? As a result my girlfriend has moved out because she and I were getting no sleep because of the fear of rats. Do I have to wait until the owners lawyer trys to sue me for holding onto my rent before I can try to sue him? I have pictures, audio tapes of conversations, and tenants that are on my side, this is all my proof of the serious problems here.
