I wouldn't say it's that unlikely. The rubble was never cleaned up, as it was left as a memorial, and there are of course places within the rubble which would be difficult for a human to access than a rat.

Now that you mention it, the quote does seem to be strongly suggesting this- there was no hiding place other than the Potter house.


"The aim of argument, or of discussion, should not be victory, but progress."

"It is better to debate a question without settling it than to settle a question without debating it."
Joseph Joubert

"...He seeks to know himself and his fellow man rather than to know a god. An Atheist believes that a hospital should be built instead of a church. An Atheist believes that a deed must be done instead of a prayer said. An Atheist strives for involvement in life and not escape into death..." -Madalyn Murray
