They are both so cute but those ears are even cuter.

Some years ago my siblings and I shared a vacation home in a remote area in eastern Washington. The few neighbors, ranchers, were at least a mile away. The house sat by a large pond, and across the pond was a very high cliff face, pocketed with all kinds of birds. At night, the bats were so thick in the air I didn't go out on the patio without my head covered. I rather enjoyed the bats :)

Much of spring and summer months we rented out rooms to groups doing bat research. The researchers slept all day, and every evening headed out into the sagebrush to net and release bats all night. I always meant to take them up on their invitations to join them, but I never got around to it. We eventually sold the place to The Nature Conservancy, who eventually sold it to some research outfit, and the bat research goes on.

Sounds like a happy time with a happy ending. smile  When I was a kid at the Grands', if Mama and I had walked up the hill to either of the Aunt's homes for a summer evening visit, we ran back down if dusk had fallen, lest bats get tangled in our hair--yes, we believed that old wives' tale, who knows, we'd not been taught anything about echolocation and bats' ability to avoid collisions.

Nytram's photos of the little batlings make them look pretty cute, but for the most part, I have no desire to get up close and personal with them.  Fly away, little bats, and eat those nasty mosquitoes!!

I love bats.  I have bat houses up to encourage as many as possible to come and hang out.  There are underground springs in my neighbor's yard so it can get swampy at times, which means mosquitoes.  Many bats means fewer mosquitoes.  smile  The brown bats are also dying off from a fungus- I don't see as many as I used to.  cry

Y'all know that bats are carriers of rabies?

 Why in the world would you post something so completely unrelated on such a cute topic. It makes no sense.

I am puzzled as wellconfuse I am nature but I thought perhaps Charlie was referring to the size fo the wings on the airplane being extremely long? Still I agree with you the cute factor of this thread is  #! for sure.biggrinbiggrinbiggrinbiggrin 

Many years ago in the  middle of the night, My Mother shrieked there was a Bat zooming around their bedroom My Dad  awoke immediately  and I already being awake from her shrieking he demanded my Tennis racket which I grabbed from my closet. He was in his under shorts jumping on their bed trying to hit this bat which looked so funny to watch him. Mum was already in the bathroom. Then after several attempts he wacked it good and showed us kids, all nine of us crowded around the doorway trying not to laugh at  what it looked like. He tossed it onto the back patio and told us all to get to bed and back to sleep. Of course being ever curious in the morning we headed out to see the Bat  and believe it or not it was missing. So obviously he must have just stunned it much to his surprise and ours too. So all turned out well.

On another occasion a good friend of mine and our children were driving in the countryside we spotted this beautiful Lilac bush both white  and deep purple so she pulled over so we could collet a few to take home. As we were picking away this bat fluttered towards he face and she screamed Bat!! So of course we dropped the lilacs and headed to the car. My dear friend was crying and refused to get out of the car so I gathered up the lilacs scattered all across the road making sure there was no Bat sleeping in one of the lilac branches. Once she inspected each one through her closed window she let me back in. My poor friend was really shaken she had never seen a bat before and of course we had to reassure our children who were very frightened, everything was alright and bats do not attack people but this one was startled and just wanted to get to safer ground. My friend and I also told them what we know of Bats and how good they were for catching mosquitoes and  June Bugs among other pesky insects. It seemed to work because both her children and mine had no after effects of being afraid of bats after this first encounter. Ice cream cones all around for them being so brave but most of all to cheer the bat a good life.

Oops...big mistake. It has been relocated.

Years ago, when I first married Lucinda, we were staying with our weedhead friends in Detroit, who had dogs and cats.

Lucinda went upstairs to go to bed. There was a bat in the stairwell. Lucinda began shrieking. "Eeeeee! There's a BAT up here! Eeeeeee!"

Suddenly. out of nowhere, one of their little kittens streaked up the stairs...and caught the bat in its jaws! Amazing feline feat! The bat made squeaking noises.

Our friend released the bat from his kitty's mouth, and took it into another room, where there was a door to the backyard.

When he came back, Lucinda and our friend's wife (her former college roommate) began screaming and yelling and going nuts.

They thought HE had the bat in HIS jaws! Turned out it was only a large rubber spider. Were they pissed? Damn betcha! Then we all had a good laugh.

 Any mammal can carry rabies.

Good "rememories," Uni!  I know I've told y'all at least once about a bat flying down the chimney at our Trenton house and Daddy chasing it with a broom.  The confrontation ended in a draw--Daddy managed to drive the bat back outside, and the bat fluttered off.

I don't remember Fritzie the dachshund joining in the chase; maybe we didn't have him yet.

 I've got to say, I expected you to have had an obscure reason for having posted it here!

 Rats started the black plague, but they are a very popular pet choice these days.
