I do not see any rat droppings around the Rat X container which has been emptied every night for five days.
If you are not using a rodenticide such as Rat X in a secure rodent bait station, then it is absolutely possible that another non-target animal is consuming the bait. Keep in mind, too, that rats will hoard food, so they make take a lot of loose bait and not consume it all right away. Be sure to follow the label instructions for size and frequency of bait placements, as well as placing bait in stations to protect it from non-target animals like pets, from weathering, and from being translocated easily. You can also make packs of bait and place them directly in burrows, per the label instructions.
