Rats are just medium-sized, long-tailed rodents living in inhabited areas such as capitals Novigrad and Vizima. Before the domesticating of cats their existence had been a great problem to human societies, most often being solved by hiring a rat-catcher playing on musical instrument.[1]

Large, savage rats living in the wilderness are called skrekks. Mutated forms of the species are pseudorats[2], and the cursed people who are able to take the form of half-human, half-rat are wererats[3][4].

Also when Catriona Plague breaked out, the first to go were the cats and dogs, then the rats and finally the people.  but this fact is known for small number of humans so there is no deratisation or something like that.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Edit

When Geralt run into Triss Merigold in Novigrad she has a contract to get rid of rats in warehouse of some merchant. Than with Keira Metz he have to destroy the rat holes with either bombs or Igni spell to receive 100Tw3 icon xp for each destroyed nest.

Depending on whether you set option "enemy upscaling" off or on, they can be the weakest or the strongest enemies in the game.
