Don’t Try To Tell Me You Don’t Want A Bat In Your Office, Too

My little friend’s hiding at the moment but I took a lot of pictures when it was out before. Leave remarks, observations and name suggestions in the comments. I, of course, will be attempting a catch-and-delayed release as soon as I find my elusive amigo.

More pics after the jump!

  1. SW, where is this bat?

    I was trained the the 5w’s always have to apply to all newstorys…

  2. Ron, if I knew where the little bat was at the moment I would be attempting to catch it for safe release. It’s hiding somewhere in our office. I’ve got to leave soon but I’ll update this post with any bat news in the coming days.

  3. Aww. What a widdle cutie patootie! He looks so shy and sweet.

    I predict you’ll find little droppings on the window sills tomorrow morning. My parents and I used to scratch our heads trying to work out why mice would climb up on the window ledges at our cottage just to poo. Then we clued in that they were bats. We never figured out how they got in.

  4. I hope you left it some food and water! I am sooooooo jealous now. Just like you felt when we had and office wombat here in Saskatoon.

  5. It does look big! Unpredictable too and I cower when they whiz around my head, but they really are darling. A pleasure to watch them circle in the clearing of our trees at night. Hope all goes well!

  6. Consider the bat, ( can I name it , Adam W ? ), a good omen. It likes you. Batman , unfortunately, wasn’t,( isn’t ), a reporter.

  7. On another note, that thing is butt ugly, scary as shit, and you should probably worry hard about how it got into your office. That said, I clearly root for its safe return to a separate and undisclosed location.

  8. Perhaps you need more catch-the-bat and less take-picture-of-bat? But I understand the judgement error and approve.

    He/she/it is a real cutie.

  9. I’ sure the local popolation of grasshoppers has been Gmo’d out, but not the obvious cockroaches.. Bats can live on them…
