Yup, thats a typical Squirrel nest. I had one in a house I was renting 20+ years ago, when the little ones grew, all day long screeching and chasing all over the attic. Had to run em out and seal their entrance... 2 years later they were back!

that looks like a nest for a Hay Snake. Grows 7' long and will eventually eat any small animals in the house - only known predator to take it on is the Money Snake.

Yeah , i noticed that also . But i really need to replace all that old 1950s aluminum wiring before the place burns down. It only has 6 breakers on a single phase, then i can insulate. I also want to add central AC , but theres a limit you want to spend on a rental property.

If that thing has been there for a while I'd be looking for some back rent from what ever it is

Wife thinks it is a raccoon
