(Choc said above)Sure enough it was a bat and we are both with brooms in hand trying to
swat it out of the air. That little bugger just swooped and flew in
every room of the house with us right behind it. We're lucky we
didn't break any knickknacks or lamps.
Anyway, we did catch it and have it in a container to take to wherever
you are supposed to have it tested for rabies.
So, okay, now I prolly won't sleep soundly tonight. The last couple
mornings I have woke up with some strange scratches on my fingers that
got a little swollen and a little bit infected, sort of like papercuts
and thought nothing of them. Now I'm wondering.
How are they getting into your house???? WOW I would freak if that was
I couldn't live with bats in the house, nope. Don't think so. Huge fruit
bats live all over Sydney, but I've never seen the little ones here. I
rather like these big ones, but ya never hear of them getting into
anybody's house for gawd's sake. They live in the trees in the public
gardens and so forth. Betcher Choc's place's gonna be fun on Halloween!
Hey, Choc, Trick or treat! Oh, dear.
I hope you let us know how you banish the little suckers.
So far, we haven't had another one. We've checked everywhere looking for
a place they could have gotten in. I think the bat snuck in behind my dh
from the deck to the bedroom.
We've been in this house for 15 yrs and never had one in the house, then
suddenly two within three days. Crap, I was ready to move out.
Bats have a high incidence of rabies. The one that bit my dh tested
negative, thank gawd. He's more freaked out than I am over this, though.
As long as it didn't have rabies, I've gotten over it. Bats aren't
aggressive and aren't known to attack and bite people. It bit my spouse
because he was sleeping and the bat landed on his head (fer gawds sake)
and he grabbed it and threw it not knowing what it was, when it bit him in
Both must have quietly flown in when the door was open then, I bet. You'll
just have to remember to keep that door closed, huh? (On nice, cool-ish
days/evenings I love to leave the door open while I wander in and out.) I
wonder if it's true that bats are blind, and operate entirely by 'radar'?
Nah, can't be true. Don't know where I got that idea. Well, hope you remain
bat-free from now on. (In our old house we used to get beautiful birds down
thru the chimney, but never any bats thk heavens.)
