    Bat...

    Advertisement



    Soo... I was sitting in the dark the other night... minding my own business when I heard something scurry across the living room floor...

    I turn on the light and low and behold there it was...middle of the room....A BAT... a big one too...ugh!

    And of course this has to happen when I'm alone in the house...

    What do I do? Scream...of course

    What does it do? Run...or crawl or whatever bats do to move around on the floor...Where does it run to you might ask...towards me of course...

    As I bolt the other way it decides it wants to fly...Where does it go? Behind our built in shelving unit of course...now completely unreachable...

    I then decide... thats it for me...

    So I turn on all the lights in the house...cause someone once told me that bats are afraid of the light...and go to bed...

    I figure my daddy would deal with the issue in the morning...gawd I hate that I still need a man for something



    Long story short...(if thats possible)...The bat reappears the next day on our screen door...

    What do we do?

    Catch and release back into nature...where he belongs...NOT in our living room!




    Here are some pics...

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~thats what happens. First you let the bat buy you a couple of drinks. Its seems like a normal flying mammal out on the town. He's just lonely like me you say. But then you turn your head, he slips you the roofie, and next thing you know you're rationalizing how a bat got in your room.

    It wasn't that big, don't be a wuss. Did I not tease you enough as a child to toughen you up to this kind of crap?

    Re: Bat...

    Why wouldn't you just throw a ball at it and then run to first?

    Oh wait.. that kind of bat. Good thing you posted pictures!

    I had one at my house last year.. the screen for my bedroom window was pushed up a little bit and every night it would come and nuzzle itself in between the screen and the glass (the glass was closed so it couldn't get in). Since it was never there during the day I never remembered to slide the screen back down, and when I remembered it was night-time and I was afraid to open the window to move the screen cause I didn't want it to attack (Sounds like a Fox show.. "Next on Fox.. When Bats Attack")... Anyway - it was there for about 2 weeks, every night. I thought it was cool that it always could find its way back.

    Eventually I remembered to move the screen during the day and I ruined it for the l'il bat.

    Re: Bat...

    Living in FL I've had an array of critters in my home, but never in my life has there been a bat and I think I'd scream!! lol Good luck getting the bat out, I have no idea what to tell you other than call a wildlife organization in your area and ask them what to do.


    And LTF I have seen grown, big 6'5 men run from a little ole lizard, and I've seen MANY men run from them. It's hilarious to watch a grown man run from a little lizard which doesn't even have any teeth. So just because a woman might have a man there with her, that doesn't mean he's going to do a damn thing about the critter but scream like a girl and run. lol

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I love our local bats. They eat lots of the mosquitos and other nasty bugs. If they were bigger I'd give them a great big hug. They deserve to be appreciated because they are indeed our friends. Sorry one scared you.

    FYI, bats like to nest in attics, and there poop can cause blindness. I saw it on a show on tv. Check you attic, the lady in the show had 5 50 gallon drums full of bat guano in her attic, with over 300 bats.

    Oh bat poop yay! Not.

    I guess they're kinda cute; I mean, like the kind of cute you hug and then run away screaming.
