what a night!!

I was on the phone when my daughter said "look mom, a little bird is in the house"
I dropped the phone and said "it's not a bird, it's a %@## bat!!!!!"

called my hubby at work who says to me,"we dont have bats!, sure it wasnt a moth?"
yeah sure it wasnt a moth

He comes home and gets to bed convincing me that I saw a moth.
In the middle of the night I see this full moon crawling on the ground closing my closet door, crawling quickly to the bathroom door to shut it, Im stunned looking at him saying "what are you doing????" he says" be quiet!! " and this full moon crawls to the bedroom door and out he goes..
I pulled the cover over my head thinking..oh oh, the bat..
He comes back in the dark, naked butt holding a baseball bat and waering a camouflage hat
Im on the ground laughing, he's swingging the bat ( the baseball bat that is) left and right trying to catch that things and all I can do is laugh saying " you sure it isnt a moth???"

there was a thread recently on rabies. anyway, someone said that anytime you have a bat in the house you should get a rabies shot. apparently they can bite you and fly off without you even noticing while you sleep.

Good thing I don't know what your husband looks like, or I'd have disturbing images in my head.

I hesitate to ask only because I'm not sure I want to know but what exactly are you reffering to when you say " full moon"?

We had one in a Christmas tree one year. We got it inside, noticed him in the tree, and put it back outside before he woke up. Close call - that room had cathedral ceilings and would have been really hard to catch him!

If that bat (the bird) is still in your house or if you find other bats I suggest the following advice:

1. Get a towel.

2. Go to where the bat is.

3. Throw the towel over the bat. It can't bite you through the towel.

4. Wrap the towel around the bat.

5. Carry wrapped bat to your door and open it.

6. Release bat into the outside environment and close the door.

Bon Chance!

Great advice. Best story since blackbirds attacked Flippin Sweet. Now you need an avatar of your husband, naked, fighting a bat with a bat in a hat.

Forget steps 5 and 6. Just bite the head off the bat and spit the blood on somebody.
