OMG a REAL BAT with fur and TEETH and Wings

Monday, September 23, 2013

Today I woke up early as morning aches and pains got me out of bed due to weather changes. It was super dark outside and cold. I just wanted to SNUGGLE with a cup of hot spiced tea, a warm, soft fuzzy robe, and a lap cat.

BUT NO. My DEAR, sweet. little, fuzzy pussy cat wanted out. SHE HAD PLANS FOR ME. The stars were twinkling merrily in the skies while the wind WHISPERED in the trees. (I should of listened to it's warning.) It was CREEPY outside, a branch snapped in the distance, leaves rustled on the ground. We have wild animals around so I hate to let her out when it's dark out. They eat sweet little kitties.

She came back in through the crack of the door I left open for her. My dear kitties face was GLOWING with pride, a SMILE from EAR to EAR was plastered on her face as she looked up at me for approval. Well her mom looked and started SCREAMING at her. She took off RUNNING from me. I ran FASTER than I knew I could run . . . SCREAMING LOUDLY. Screams are louder when the world is silent, slumbering away. DH was asleep. ZZZZZ. GET OUT, OUT, OUT, I SCREAMED. SWEET KITTY was puzzled as to why her mom was screaming at her to get out when IT was so DARK. Her smile changed to a FROWN as she ran back out. Her whiskers were DOWNCAST. Yes, she is an expressive kitty.

Then her MOM started throwing things at HER screaming DROP IT, DROP IT. (not to hurt her.) Mind you it was dark out and the neighbors were asleep. I didn't care. I kept SCREAMING. She dropped her catch. A BLACK FUZZY, WINGED, TOOTHY, did I mention teeny tiny sharp pointed teeth, BAT !!! OMG. Not a BAT. She has never brought me a bat before. I kept trying to tell her it was bad to eat. I covered it up with a door mat as I didn't know what the heck to do with a BAT ???? YEEKS !!!!

It was much bigger than this one.
And scarier than this these.
IT HAD white, tiny, super sharp looking teeth, TEETH, FUR, WINGS, AND LOOKED REAL MEAN!!!

I never have had to deal with a bat before. It was SCARY for me as I didn't know what to do. I woke up DH so he could deal with it. My dear sweet little pussy cat was pleased, I WAS NOT AMUSED. She never heard her mom scream so LOUDLY or freak out. She never knew her mom could run so fast.

Have you ever had bats in your belfry and what did you do about it? Honestly I was scared of the bat.

Running workout done today. Check. Without exercise bra on. Must wear workout bra next time. Boobs were cheering me on clapping wildly. Added to the wild morning excitement.

I probably looked like this, screaming, chasing after the grinning cat with the bat in her mouth. Thank goodness she has her rabies shots.


The morning walk is done. 1.20 miles. Whew. I did better today as the walk was less hilly. Though there were tons of frogs committing mass suicide the last few days. I don't know why there was so many dead frogs on the walk, its so weird. Yellow jacks were feeding off of them so I had to doge the frogs. What weird things have happened today. Creepy weird.

Fall is REALLY here !!! As evidenced by the BAT, dead frogs, and longer nights.

Spark on. I fear Halloween is near.

Hopefully tomorrow I won't wake up looking like this.

Halloween is on the way.

    We have thousands and thousands of bats that live under a downtown bridge here. It is quite common to read of rabid bats being found so it is wise to stay clear of them as much as possible. A series of rabies shots is given just in case a handled bat may be rabid. On the plus side, bats eat mosquitoes which is wonderful.

    What a cool blog !!

Yes, I've had to chase a bat around the house a couple of times too. I'll have to admit, while it was kinda freaky at first, I too eventually fond the bats really fascinating !

I mean, no one wants to wake up in the middle of the night to the sound of wings in their room. but that did happen to me !! Didn't scream, ran for my brother and told him to get the bat. LOL !!! It wasn't very big. Their wings make it seems like they are huge when they aren't.

Their sonar is really cool. when we were changing screens one summer, a bird flew in. I felt bad because the poor thing kept banging into the walls. Not so that bat. gotta love radar !!! lol...

anyway... guess your kitty loved you soooooo much, they decided to give you a bat. lol. My cat used to leave us mice. how nice. ;) not to scare you, but some bats do carry rabies. I'm sure your cat if fine, but just be aware.

    I love bats! I had one living above my front door for a couple days after a nasty storm must have blown it off coarse. I don't know what my cats would do with a bat though -- hah.

    Bats are wonderful creatures! They DO look scary sometimes, but I love them because they have such a beneficial place in the environment.

My BF's cat used to bring in field mice to show off to him as if she was such a great hunter. He was not thrilled to find one in the bed or to find one with his bare foot on the bathroom floor! I know that proud look your kitty had!

  I can understand your 'bat fear.' Had one in the house years ago. Also ran so fast, if anyone from the Guiness Book of World Records had been around, i'd be in the book. Cats are great for bringing home presents that...aren't people presents. Oh well you got some early morning exercise (the hard way). Stay tuned...same bat time...same bat channel. :) emoticon
