The four roommates – Jody, Brianna, Meg and Logan – were enjoying life at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh when a rat decided to move in with them.

Logan's boyfriend, Beau, said: "I went downstairs and I got a Swiffer, and I got an old mop and I said: 'Okay you guys, block these doors and if it tries to come back into the kitchen I'll either kill it or knock it out of the door.'"

Logan poked the rat out the shower and it raced out of the door as her roommate Brianna was waiting with a mop to push it down the stairs. It went flying down to Beau, who swatted it out of the house like a hockey puck.
