This morning I woke up early and was doing my normal “watch tv and surf the internets”….when I heard an odd sound… that didn’t seem to be coming from Beverly Hills 90210….
I looked up….and noticed something sitting on my FIOS box… I thought it was a mouse… but wasn’t sure. So I went to turn on a light…and that’s when it spread its wings…and started flying around the living room! A Bat!!!!
So I spent a few minutes crouched low to the floor, then I decided to grab Madison and shut her in a room upstairs (not very well though, because she escaped!)
Then I decided I would try to trap it myself….and I did! Its currently trapped under the base of a hand held blender mixing bowl.
Problem solved right? Not so quick….
The local community email group pointed me to this article from WaPo. So now I am waiting for Animal Control to come pick it up to be tested for rabies :/
…. and wonder how the bat got in the house in the first place, and if there are more
