Hey guys, i have a rubbing noise coming from the interior wall.
It is not a water pipe, and it isn’t a tree rubbing against the gutter or anything, anyone know what it is???
Feedback is appreciated!!!!

Funny story – this guy i know was dating this girl i know, he oculdnt do anythign to please her, so he bought a cute fuzzy kitten. Cat goes missing. Shes pissed. Find cat in the wall cavity 3 days later, cat’s still alive to this day.

Could be any kind of random rodent, squirrel … good luck .. and WE WANT PICS lol.

Okay… I live in Guelph Ontario.
There is plenty of critters here, but as far as I’m concerned, it can’t be a mouse, as i think a mouse would make a more scratching noise.

I have had a cat, honey bee hive, chipmunks, squirrels, mice and bats in my walls. Anything is possible. Especially after the light winter as the chipmunk population has exploded.

Not a GUMP. I trapped the last one this year and sent it to my ex wife.

Gremlins?
It could be a wire- electrical, cable TV. Cut a hole in the wall and have someone stick their hand inside to see what it is.

Probably critters of some kind. Check your vent spaces (soffit vents, foundation vents, etc) for holes. Check where pipes, etc pass thru your foundation. Some critters are able to get thru some very small openings, and once they’re in your attic or under your house, they can get almost anywhere. Rats, mice and squirrels love to build nests in wall cavities.
