A few facts about Bats [Aug. 7th, 2009|11:58 pm]

They are silent. I know there is a tradition that they squeak. But when you find one circling the living room there is NO noise.

They will give you a heart attack when suddenly discovered silently circling your living room.

They will apparently not rest while silently circling your living room. Maybe because of the excited cats.

They will not magically find the open door using echolocation. It will take the combined efforts of tall person and short cat to convince silently circling bat to go out the open door. Actual cat contact as a final shove may be necessary.

The mild thunderstorm added a lot of atmosphere to this adventure.

I am NEVER going to get to sleep now.

Tomorrow begins the great woodchuck hunt.

Bats & Thunderstorms

I'm going to go out on a limb and say there must be a connection between bats and thunderstorms. Maybe when a storm catches a bat unaware the thunder and or lightning makes them seek immediate shelter wherever. You're the second person to report a bat in their home last night.

Far more funny, the second was a guy I work with who was trying to hint I should go capture the one in his house.
Whereas yours was ROTFPBOOMHALF!!

from hotel management experience...

and having to rid hallways, rooms of bats in the past it seems the only time they make any noise is when they're either hurt else think they've found a way out but just can't fit through it...
