Walk only on the wooden beams in the attic, never the sheet rock, or you could fall through the ceiling! Be careful, an attic is a hazardous place, where it can be easy to fall, or poke a roofing nail in your head.
Roof rats usually require water daily, though their local diet may provide an adequate amount if it is high in water content.
