This is a funny coincidence...

Tonight I watched Batman Begins, I drew a fanart of the Joker and was looking for some nice Batman fanfics (you get the picture, a Batman-themed night), when my cat came in from my balcony with a live bat in its mouth! And I live in an apartment! How did he catch it?!

I managed to save the poor thing, but that is some batshit crazy coincidence, eh? I mean, how often do you get to hold a bat in your hands with Batman stuff all around you? :XD: I took a picture of the bat right next to my "batman begins" DVD, I just had to.

So if they ship it to the states, will it be in English? Or is it still in French?

Trippy. I hope you didn't touch the bat with bare skin during its rescue. Most rabies cases in the US are caused by bats. A friend of mine just had to take her daughter in for the rabies series because the little girl (age 5) said she touched a bat. Even though they couldn't find the alleged bat, the doctors had her go through the shots.

From the CDC: "Any bat that is active by day, is found in a place where bats are not usually seen (for example, in a room in your home or on the lawn), or is unable to fly, is far more likely than others to be rabid. Such bats are often the most easily approached. Therefore, it is best never to handle any bat."

thanks a lot for all that information. Actually, I live in Switzerland, and there have been only three cases of rabies on bats in Switzerland in the last 15 years (just checked that out). And the species I found (a pipistrelle) is very unlikely to carry it (95% of bats found carrying rabies are in fact noctules). I sent an email to a Bat center in my city to ask them if there are really any risks, and what advice they could give me.

xDDDDD I think that's funny, I once saved a mouse that was running around our house after my dad tried to sick our cat on it.

But my cat....was afraid of it xD the thing started running at her and she just started backing up really fast all freaked out xD. I love my cat even more for it though...

A live bat, tf? My cats have never caught bats ever, and there used to be a colony that live around my old house (I suspect that they actually lived in my old house).

Live bat o.o

Awwww, at least it's okay now and safe from your cat.

Incidentally, your cat does not have green fur and a scar across the mouth does it?

If the bat bit you and/or your cat I think you should both see a doctor about rabies. If the bat was sick it might have made it easier for your cat to catch it on the balcony. Not trying to be a worrywart, but it's better safe than sorry right?

actually, it did try to bite but it was barely a pinch, it didn't leave any mark. I washed my hand thoroughly after too. It's the second time my cat catches a bat, last time was two months ago, but my cat killed it, unfortunately.
You're right though about rabies. I was a little worried yesterday, but I don't think there really is a risk, as it didn't hurt me or my cat, and it's one of those tiny bats that, even if they bite you, don't hurt you at all (it was barely bigger than a quarter!)
Thanks for the advice!

I just saw this after I posted mine - if it bit you, even a superficial bite can cause rabies.

thanks for the link! actually, where I live (in Switzerland), the sanitary risks are very thin. I sent an email to a bat center, to ask them advice of what I sould do, and if it's necessary for me to see a doctor, just in case! :D

Hahaha, wow, that could have been such a night, :D bats are so cute (:

I live in an apartment too, and we have lots of bats, they fly so close to our open window on summer nights, that mum is always afraid they will once fly into our flat, but it has not happened before, they have some good aim, so your cat must be a clever one, to be able to catch one!!

Can we see the picture? pretty please? :please:

No, in fact, I leave the door of the balcony open, but the "shields" (I don't remember the englih word for the things that you pull down at nightime in front of the windows...) were down. My cat burst in with the bat in its mouth! It was quite disturbing. I was so happy to see it was alive, and that my cat hadn't yet proceeded with the final kill... He growled when I took the bat from him though. I think he just wanted to eat it on the floor of my room! Ewwww....

Just a few weeks ago I found a bat in the stairwell to my office building. I thought he was dead until I tried to pick him up and he started pinging sonar all over the place!

:iconkyla79:
kyla79 Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2008
haha mine did the same!! It bit me too, but it really didn't hurt, it only pinched me a little. Poor little guy! the sonar sounds drove my cat mad, I had to lock him in the toilet before he could come after it!

I was lucky in that I was too quick for it to bite me, so it vented its little batty rage on a tissue as I scooped him into a box.
It sounds so strange up close, doesn't it?

It was bleeding a little, but the way it got mad at me when I picked it up makes me believe that it was fine. I went back on the balcony and let it fly away. It flew without any trouble. I am soooo happy to have managed to save it, as my cat had killed its first bat two months ago. I came too late... My cat had just killed it and I felt so sad, so bad for not having been able to do anything. Saving this little bat tonight was a wonderful thing, it made me feel all fuzzy inside!
