Thanks for your kind words on my bat blog! I'm glad it brought you a smile! We love the little things, in fact, we appreciate all the animals we encounter in our home and yard. Even the little house mice we "adopted" two years ago! They live in condo units (10 and 20 gallon tanks!) we affectionately dubbed (I know, not so pc but it's just a pun!) "guantanamouse holding center". We feed the squirrels, groundhogs, the stray cats who hang around (they share with the slugs!), keep a healthy distance from the skunks and opossums and let the raccoon have it's fun chasing us, (ok me!) in the house. Last time he did that, he stood up with paws on the door and chittered at me! Chittered!! I'd swear he was laughing! My Beloved even relocates the house spiders we find except the little black jumping one. We let him stay. We like our wildlife. And it's kinda nice they don't seem to mind us too much either!
