Do You Like Bats?

I love bats! And I have stories about them too…. look, JJ, it has ears! (Personal joke…)

One of my favourite stories is how I rescued the guy in the shopping center across from me. He had hair down to his bum-hole. But he realized something was stuck in his still-closed doorway, so he called me. I went over to look, but when it popped up, it had ears. He thought it was a bird….Well, lo and behold, the last thing he wanted was a live bat in his hair! After much scurrying around, and crawling underneath things, I finally grabbed a hold of the poor wee scared thing…

Not the same batty…

So, I made sure I had a good hold, and went to take it outside…. when he guy yells “I want to come too!” Really?? Just five seconds ago, you were terrified…ok. So, out we go for the “Big Rescue”.

A couple of months later, in the middle of a winter blizzard no less, someone from one of the upstairs shops brings me a live bat in a sandwich bag. WTF?? I asked why they didn’t take it out, and they said they didn’t know what to do. So, out I go again, trying to leave it in a comfy, warm place in the bushes.

So here’s a little more info from our friends at The Bat Conservation Trust. Don’t forget to sign up and donate to help out our furry friends. And while you’re here, if you’d like to donate towards my latest cancer care, it is much appreciated!

  1. I remember having to use a bathtowel to retrieve a bat from Sam. He had it pinned by the wings on our bedroom floor. Took the whole towel bat included a threw it out on the balcony. We lived on Second Street at the time
