I don't think that's a rat. It looks like a baby raccoon. In any case, it is airgun fodder.

I want to add something here.

Unless I'm goaded into doing so, I don't take photos, much less movies, of my kills. Those I had posted in PhooyTube, I removed. Just to many PETA folks.

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

Young opossum.
Buncha BB guns that I don't get to shoot as much as I like. Building duck boats now that I'm "retired".

A country rat, yes.  100% a juvenile possum.  I'm seeing them on my night camera recently as well.  The body shape, tail, and color/shading (under the infrared glow) are all a dead ringer, and the bobbing head movement is distinct from a rat.

I’m messing with you guys. Yep that’s a young possum who’s getting fat on my peanut butter. Tomorrow I’m  gonna mix in some ghost pepper. Might make him think twice about eating peanut butter after that taste treat!

While I think the idea of spicing up the peanut butter could be entertaining I don't think I would do it. I'd be worried about folks taking it wrong and charging me with animal cruelty.

Nevermind that any discomfort felt by a rodent would only be temporary - in today's world I'm sure I would be guilty of causing long-term psychological problems for it. Probably have to pay for animal therapy sessions, provide a permanent residence for it - along with food, and do some hard time.

If it's a rat it's ok for me to shoot. Possums, skunks, raccoons and even the damn squirrels are not fair game as so decreed by the wife and my two kids. Tender hearted they are.

"But I thought it was a rat!"

uh huh.

You know I eat those peppers myself. So I'm not sure it's animal cruelty.  Last year I mixed in fresh ghost pepper with peanut butter, and the possums ate it anyway. I hope it hurt more coming out than when it went in.  :o
