The rat pole is a pole that can be used to store up to six dead rats. It is obtained from Phingspet and Grimesquit in Varrock Sewers while learning how to be Rat Catchers. It can also be retrieved from them after the quest and multiple can be obtained using the drop trick.
To attach a rat, the pole must first be wielded, then the player's pet cat must catch a rat. When caught, the player is given the option to attach it to the pole or leave it. An adult cat or wily cat are advised for this as they have greater success rates.
Attaching six rats to the pole is required for the medium Varrock Task "With a Ten-foot Pole".

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Hellrats used to be added to the pole, but would only show on the pole as a normal rat. This has been fixed; Hellrats are no longer added to the pole because "[they] are too hot to add to the rat pole".
- The rat pole used to have a function in the Rat Pits before the Pits were removed.
