GONE BATTY

There I was Saturday night…
Watching TV, getting over a cold when…
AHHHHHHHH!
A streaky swirl of blackness whizzed by me!
Lord!
It was a black blur…
A black cat pursuing a big black BAT BLURR!!!
AHHHHHHHH!
And then the big black bat…
Came right at me!
AHHHHHHHH!
And then...
Like the fanged bite from a vampire...
All my childhood fears of Dracula…
Oozed up in me again...
AHHHHHHHH!
And then…
The bat went somewhere
Me?
I hightailed it into the bedroom…
Hoping the bat would somehow find its way out.
I forgot about it until Sunday night…
When…
AHHHHHHHH!
The bat was flying around again.
This time though…
I saw the bat go into the guest bedroom.
I hurried, slammed the door…
And decided to wait until Monday morning...
Where I spied it hanging upside down…
On the bottom of the guest bed.
I then got the pool net and caught the varmint.

I love my new kitty…
Who is a jungle kitty...
And very much a hunter...
And likes to bring me things...
But Indie p l e a s e...
Don’t bring me anymore presents. 


Always, Em-Musing
P.S. I won't be posting for a while...
Heading back to the States to do my taxes.
AHHHHHHHH!

Bats can slip in through the smallest crack.
And you kitty was just trying to help!

I found a baby bat sitting outside our building once.

Look at the little rat with fur! That's why your cat was chasing it.
