I was watching tv one night and I heard a loud thumping coming from the bathroom. I slowly walked in; the noise was coming from the shower. Gingerly I pulled back the shower curtain only to see a bat sprawled along the side of the tub with its wings fully opened. GAAAAhHHH! Slamming the door shut I ran to the phone and called animal control. A guy was at my door within 20 minutes. He came in and assessed the situation then left to get his supplies: Heavy gloves and a coffee can. We determined that it had crawled in through the shower vent. I duct taped a plastic tupperwear lid over it until hubby came home from his ski trip to seal things up.

The early years of my marriage were pestered by exes, who don't look like bits of black construction paper when crumpled on the carpet and try to fight back when you approach them with a baseball bat to euthanise them. I'd have taken the flying bats any day. You grow things very well, don't you? All those lovely plants in your pictures.

The summer of 1967, I was seven years old and afraid of nothing. For the whole season we stayed in a castle, a real Scottish castle way up in the highlands and, as you can imagine, there were lots of bats. One evening a group of english teenagers who were on holiday came running screaming from their dormitories (and no they weren't all girls) crying that there was a bat there. I went to have a look and discovered three of the bolder boys, towels over their heads, trying to beat the poor thing out of the air with tennis racquets, unsuccessfully.

I walked into the room, stood with my arms out at my side and as the bat flew over me I whipped my arms up and caught it. Talk about spooking the kids...

I kept the bat for a few days in a box with a glass lid but eventually let it go as whilst trying to kiss it one afternoon it leapt out of my hand and sank its teeth into my cheek. There I was in the middle of the castle kitchen with a live bat hanging from my right cheek. I let him go but he was the first of several "friends" I had that summer.

Holy Crap!! I think I would have been like the bat that hit the ceiling fan and was stunned. Either that or I would have been wishing for Depen*s.
No thank you. No thank you . No thank you!! I have a hard enough time with the snakes

You draw many admirers... some of them just happen not to be human.... ;)

Found a little brown bat yesterday morning -never saw one- had no idea what to do with it. So I gave it some water (on a few leaves) and put it in a box for the day. Put it on top of a bush at dusk - and, thankfully, it was gone this morning. The bat was trapped under my garbage container -I don't know for how many days - and seemed totally dehydrated. He/she slept all day, but was quite feisty when I checked on her in the evening. I put it on top of a bush at dusk and it was gone when I checked back this morning.
