    Just curious...
    Maybe it would also be interesting if you tell us about the environment your Toyota resides, i.e. Garaged or not, rural or city, etc.
    Any Toyota.
    Mine is not garaged, and I live in a heavily wooded area. Squirrels everywhere, but I have a couple of squirrel chasing German Short hair pointers patrolling the back yard.

    Nope for me. My Tundra lives the life of luxury in a heated/air-conditioned garage. Plus, I have a good mouser that sleeps in the garage....

    Park in the garage every night. Have had mice in the garage a few years in a row. Set traps and caught them within a few weeks. No damage to my truck at all from the mice.

    Outside, for now, in the Santa Cruz foothills, rodents got the windshield washer hose on my last Tundra, turbo hose on my wife's VW and now I just found a nest on the top of my backhoe engine and the fuel gauge / tach aren't working. I'm gonna soak some cotton balls in peppermint oil and stuff 'em in the engine compartments, seems to work well.... just have to keep doing it periodically.
    Kinda tough to have cats here. Coyotes, fox, bobcat and mountain lions have 'em on the menu. Bigger dogs fare well here but small dogs and cats disappear frequently.

    None. Live in the city in SoCal. Park outside. There is a marsh 1/2 mile away. Lots of squirrels. Seen rats, possums, raccoons and coyotes around. Funny, no one has outdoor cats in my neighborhood. Folks have dogs. Wonder if the coyotes are making meals of any cats.

    Parked outside in Baltimore City MD. Before the Tundra I owned a Sequoia and had the wires chewed off on the parking sensors. Hopefully it does not occur on my Tundra
