My pumpkin guy is much more casual when it comes to touching and visiting with bats!
Hubby and I think they are the dearest and wonderful little creatures~
Our daughter woke us at 4am several days ago... a bat was flying around her.
Woke her from a sound sleep and she could feel the wind from its wings.
We had to save the little guy because (though a small chance) they carry rabies.
If the bat had walked on her... it should be tested.
Discovered sooner, we could have just returned it outside.
The one in her room was a common brown bat.
Hubby discovered this sweet guy last Friday when he was mowing the lawn.
This is a Hoary Bat.
It was hanging 1 1/2' from the ground on one of our young Maple trees.
Tucked in as it was a bright sunny day...
Our little Hoary Bat stayed in the same place for 3 days.
From time to time it would stretch out his left wing.
We wondered if it was injured.
We were going to call a bat rescue group Monday morning...
(Just like when you finally get a dr. appointment----- the pain, rash etc. disappears!)
Around 6 pm Sunday night we noticed our little friend had changed position.
No longer hanging vertical... it had turned a little.
How we hoped it was going to fly to its next destination!
By 8pm our little "grandpa bat" was on its way!
Hope your summer has been filled with a flurry of fun...
... and not toooo batty!
