Desperate mum says rats the size of 'young cats' have infested her home

A DESPERATE mum says huge rats threaten to overrun her home — and seem immune to poison.

Faye Joyce, 29, claims her landlords have spent £1,500 on pest controllers, but haven’t been able to kill off the rodents.

Receptionist Faye, who has a son aged seven, said: “The rats are the size of young cats.

“They’ll run up to you in the garden and they scurry around inside the cavity walls all day.”

She blames fly-tippers for dumping piles of rubbish near her home in Milton Keynes, Bucks.

She added: “It’s a breeding ground for rats.”

And Faye says she is now "fighting a losing battle" – as she cannot afford a deposit to move elsewhere.

And Faye says her mental health is now struggling as a result of all the stress the rodent situation is causing.

She said: "I've got so ill. My mental health has never been so bad. The anxiety and panic attacks I am having are becoming more regular.

"I am trying to stay out the house with my son as much as I can due to feeling unsafe.

"I feel I'm failing as a mother because its my job to keep my son safe and with all this going on, I feel I am not doing so."
