(Scroll down for video) A couple said that they had no choice but to catch a super large rat after their cat freaked out.
The family of Stockholm, Sweden, was horrified to see the monster rat living in their kitchen.
After being caught, the rat was measured and it came in at 15 inches long, not including its tail. Signe Bengtsson said that she had no idea why her cat was afraid from going into the kitchen.
One day, when she picked up a trash bag, she saw the monster just laying there. “I could not believe that a rat can grow so large,” she said.
In fear, she began screaming. Her husband Erik Korsas, who was not home at the time, was doubtful that a huge rat could actually be living in the kitchen. By the time it was caught, the rat caused serious damage to the pipes in the kitchen.
Pest control explained that the rat found its way into the basement apartment by chewing through cement and wood. Pest control also said that they have never seen such a big rat before.
