Holy Bat!

So I'm sleeping peacefully when yarbiedoll comes up and says "Greg?" I grunt, annoyed that my precious sleep was being cut short by about a half hour. "Greg? There's a bat in the living room."

I jump out of bed, excited! "Really?! Cool!!!"

So we went downstairs and looked for the bat. After searching for a few minutes I asked yarbiedoll if she was just making it up. She insisted that it was true. I had my doubts.

Finally, she found the bat again, in the window. Once I saw how small it was, I got a hand towel to scoop him up with. He seemed pretty scared, and he didn't struggle much when I collected him. We took him out the front door, unfolded the towel and he flew away.

OK, that was worth losing 30 minutes of sleep over.

Yes, it was.

You're now my favourite Batman! And kudos to your sweetie for not hammering the poor creature to death.

He was cute. Hardly worth hammering to death!

A brave soul, as well.

Bats are amazing animals.

Oh, man! And you don't have a picture of it? You need a picture of the bat and your face.

I think I might have a picture of the bat and his knee. We'll see.

We had a bat in our living room about 2 years ago IIRC. Mrs. CT hates them so he got spanked and disposed of.

I'm disposing of rabbits in my yard thanks to my new pellet rifle, too. Rotten things nibbling down my garden...

Uh, this is how we ended up with our entire family getting rabies shots.
