I don’t really need temperature control at this point

My daughter has quite the overacting imagination, which is great when it comes to art and storytelling, but more problematic when it comes to real life. I have always been very literal minded, so when she started to complain of monsters in the attic at night, I of course dismissed it without a second thought. A week later, however, and she was still saying the same thing, so I decided to switch beds with her for the night and see what happened. Everything was normal, nice and quiet, until just past midnight when I heard a frightful scratching and clawing on the air ducts in the ceiling. This was not the scraping of edges in the ductwork, there was obviously something moving around in there. Of course it was not a monster, it was probably just a squirrel or possum that got in through one of the external air vents or grates. The way those claws scraped against the inside the heating ducts, I am not at all surprised she thought it was a monster. The next day I called out an HVAC technician to tell me what we should do. The guy didn’t even come to the house, once he heard the problem he said I needed an animal control guy, not an HVAC professional. I asked about just poisoning the animal myself, but he warned me that putting any kind of poison into the AC ducts was a very stupid idea. Also, we didn’t want the thing to die stuck in an air vent, where it would stink up the whole house.
