The rat pole is an item that players obtain during the Ratcatchers quest, which may subsequently be used in the Rat Pits minigame. Players who lose their rat pole can obtain a new empty one by talking to Phingspet and Grimesquit.
Players can attach up to six dead rats to the pole. To attach a rat, the player must first be wielding the pole, and not just have it in their inventory. The player must use their cat to catch rats. When the cat catches a rat, the player has the option to put the rat on the pole. An adult cat or wily cat is recommended for this, as they have a much better success rate than kittens.
