    No, I make sure the frat cats are fed the finest food for their age/activity profile. Honestly I am way nicer to animals than I am to human beings.

    This may not matter to anyone else, but I am amazed that I was able to use a computer, much less form coherent posts, last night. Damned bats are attracted to drunkness.

    Sort of- they are carriers, not the cause of rabies. Rabies is caused by a virus, and the virus is transmitted through the saliva or other body fluids of animals infected with the virus. Infected animals are vectors, not causes, of the virus, which in turn causes the disease.

    There's a huge difference between the fact that most human cases of rabies resulted from bat bites and the belief that all bats carry rabies (I know you didn't say that- but a lot of people mistakenly believe that). Actually, in some parts of the country, raccoons and skunks are more common carriers. Read this for more info, and for an interesting map of the incidence of rabies in wild animals (not frat boys), check this out.

    ^^^ they're definitely scary when they fly around you but in reality, their navigation system is better than a 767's. They generally try to avoid you, more out of self-preservation than anything else. However, when they're trapped (like in a room), they do get sort of panicky!

    Up on Mackinac Island, one of the shops has bats in it. They are pretty cool, and just zip around the shop all day. It was pretty funny watching the customer reactions though to them.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.
