There are two things I remember about the rats and hogs issue.
I’m told rats prefer a grain based diet – so, if the kitten / cat food you’re using has meat listed as its first ingredient, rats are less likely to go for it.
Also, rats are neophobes : change unsettles them. So, apparently, putting the food in a different location every night can help put them off from coming back.
