Don't know what I'd do but...seems like too much twilight, for you, Christins!

Is it alive? Move?

I have questions. First off, how the hell did it get in the house? Were the cats responsible for its demise? Or did it just crawl under there and die after circling you while you slept until it ran out of food? Did it have a friend? Where is the friend?

The more I think about this, I think moving is the right answer.

I feel for you. And this brings all sorts of new meaning to the "holy bats" exclamation we use out here.

Holy freaking bat(s)!

scream! And then call my husband to come get it out of my house!

Cindy said...

Holy Smokes! I honestly have no idea what I would do if I found a dead bat under the bed.

Oh my word! I would freak out! I can't believe you had the guts to take a picture of it! Bren carried a dead possum into our house the other day and I was screaming and freaking out. I cannot handle dead animals. But yes, it does beg the question, how did it get in the house? Yech!!

Oh my word! I would totally freak out! Bren carried a dead possum into our house the other day and I was screaming and freaking out! I cannot stand dead animals! I can't believe you had the guts to take a picture of it! But yes, it does beg the question - how did it get in the house? and was it flying around before it went under your bed? Yech!!

Move.

Or you could do what my friend in college did when she found a mouse in the closet -- close it off and barricade the door with a dresser, leaving all your belonging for someone to clean out at a later date. (Including hundreds of dollars of BRAND NEW hockey equipment...)

Chatter said...

There is only one possible response to your question. I would MOVE asap!

Stacy said...

um. move to a condo on the middle floor of a skyscraper, seal everything. never open the windows and have a double door system of entry/exit. was that thing dead when youfound it?

DO NOT THROW THE BAT OUT!!! I know that sounds weird, but you have to get the bat tested for rabies - especially since the bat was already dead and in your house.

You should call animal control asap and they can get the bat tested for you. When we had this happen to us last summer, we were told by multiple places that if the bat could not be tested or if the bat got away before it could be captured (our visitor was alive), EVERY person in our house had to get rabies shots. There is no way to know how long the bat was there and whether it bit anyone at night - bats have incredibly small and sharp teeth and most people would not see a bat bite on their skin and would not know that they had been bit, especially if it happened it night.

I don't mean to scare you, but you seriously need to call animal control and call your doctor.

Um, probably FREAK OUT!

Um, probably FREAK OUT!

Mark and Sarah said...

I think I'd scream and run from the house and wait for my husband to take away any evidence. Then move.

Brenna said...

Oh, my. Ick!

claudia said...

Realistically, I hope that you called pest control and had it tested for rabies.

I found a similiar bat in my house but it was very much alive and hanging on our beam in the livingroom. I ran upstairs to the bedroom, slammed the door and called Clark to come home and get rid of the bat. We have had 3 bats in 23 years, not bad odds. Better than our apt. in Iowa where we had 5 or 6 a year. I know you aren't suppose to kill bats in Indiana but if they are in my house they are fair game!
