At 2:43 am I was awoken by the sound of whirring wings. Once you’ve had a bat in the house you never forget that sound. What really blew my mind is there were two! That is a first in the 20 years we have lived here. Usually every year there is one or two bats but two at once? Well that is a first.
This is why I keep my bedroom door opened just enough to let the cat in and out. And she can squeeze through a small crack in the doorway. From now on it will be closed. I don’t mind bats, just not whizzing above my head and crashing into walls. They have a tendency to try and hang on in a corner then fall. Of course right on my head! So no. No bats allowed!
Fortunately these two were smart and figured out that the window was open. I could hear them buzzing between the screen and window glass as they climbed up looking for a way out. I just closed the window and trapped them inside.
Above is how they look right now. Earlier I took the screen out of the bottom so they can escape tonight when they are ready. Like I said, I like bats but bats belong outside.
Perhaps they think I am their leader as this is what my nightshirt says…
