Our expert says:
Most types of rat poison contain substances that prevent blood clotting, and the antidote is vitamin K. Since we do not know what type of poison these rats may have taken, I cannot simply recommend giving vitamin K, although it is unlikely to do any harm. Also, to the best of my knowledge, rat that eat this type of poison does not normally smell of the poison.
Why do they do it? To show you what good hunters they are, and for pudding after the nice food you gave. It is not a reflection on the quality of your food!
