Oh no IT did not happen again..I love my cat

So once again it happened..Not sure how and I am not sure why, all I can say is it happened again.

I am laying in bed..(our room is upstairs and the kids rooms are downstairs) and I hear something crash...I have the monitor on next to my bed so I can hear if the kids need anything..I did not think much of it because with a small dog and a cat, sometimes they knock things over in the dark...No big deal...Until I heard squeaking that is...

I said " I think I hear a bat again...But not up here..Downstairs!!"

So we head downstairs..And sure enough I hear it coming from the oldest spawns room...We wake him up and tell him to go sit on the couch for a minute..

We look and we can hear the bat, we just cant see it...As we walk over to the side of his bed, my cat has it pinned against the wall...She had damaged one of its wings so it can not fly...So it was making all sorts of noise and trying like mad to fly away..We got it outside and then we couldn't see it..It was dark and it just kinda flopped out of the box..I told him to kill it...He was hitting it with the broom but that didn't work...And I did not want to make a bloody mess in my house...

So my Seal point Siamese with the blue crossed eyes caught the bat..Now that is a good girl...She is good at things like that...She can catch flys with her paws too..But catching a bat in the dark has to be her biggest achievement yet..

I do not know how it got in, nor do I know why...I just know I better never see another one in here or I am moving...

Another update..Now mom IS talking to the midget..I swear I am gonna stop updating if she cant make up her mind...She is making me look bad...LOL

Well that is all I have for now...I am tapped...This bat has taken what funny story I thought I had to post..And crushed it with its beety eyes and huge wing span...Think I am gonna make me a sling shot and take em down as I see them fly thru the sky tonight...And put a BEWARE OF CAT sign on all the doors and windows..Written in bat language of course..(I don't know of they can read English or not)..

Have a good Monday...May all your days be bat less days...:)

I am with you- I'd be moving out of the house until the bats were gone.
The extension office in your area should be able to provide you with more information...perhaps even have someone that could help you.....here are some suggestions....

"Beware of cat" in bat language? LOL!

Bats carry diseases like rabies. Not sure if cats can get rabies, but you should call your vet.

Marel Lecone said...

I guess, THANK GOD for cats. I hope this gets solved for you. Perhaps, it was the same one and he will stay away because of the wing and all.

Oh, Granny, I hope you sort it all out. :)

Take care to all.

You've got bats in your belfrey.

We need proof of this relationship with your mom and the little man. Please, give us something. A bit of their online conversation would be good or better yet, a pic of the guy.

Poor bat.

What the heck was he doing in the house? Maybe he followed a mosquito in and was trying to save you?

Here I thought moving to the Midwest I could escape creepy things (i.e. scorpions) in my house and now you tell me about bats? Is it safe to live anywhere these days??!

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

no mama duck..nowhere is safe..lol

Jennifer said...

I moved because of bats, out of the nicest house I even lived in. My advice is a tennis racket, of course I wore a ski mask too, have a thing about bats in my hair. We spent a whole summer dressed like a swat team.

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

Hi Aunt Frankie..good advice with the tennis racket..although i am afraid it is not long enough for my sake..ten foot pool maybe..lol...
*hugs*

BipolarPrincess said...

Still would rather have a bat than a skunk!

Tammy said...

You are so lucky to have a cat who will catch those bats.
There must be somewhere, where those bats are coming in from. Is this the first time you have been getting them?
I would be looking around trying to see how these things are coming in.
Damn girl, I hope that is the last of them.

When we lived in Bat house, the first bat we saw I called my Dad, Marc's Grandpa and he came right over, caught the bat in a glass and took it outside and let it go. Said it was God's creature so when you said Marc let the bat go I knew he is just like my Dad.
