Halloween Critter Visitor

Alright, in my  7 years of living at our home, I have never encountered any  invading critter such as  this little guy.  It happened two days before Halloween.  My husband was putting the dogs to their bed  when he heard a noise at our laundry room.  At first he thought that  someone had break in to our  basement and he got  cautious.  He run upstairs, grab a bat, and called me to come with him as he heard some noise at the basement.  I went with him, we inspect the laundry room and  I saw the  filter moving at our heater.  And there we discovered it was a bat, a baby bat.  We let him loose by  pulling out the  filter and he  flew  at the bottom of our basement stairs.

At first I said I can catch him and then I got scared when I saw his pangs hissing at me lol.  Hubby would not fit at the bottom of the stairs so I had to do it.  It was my first face to face encounter  with a bat so I was shaking.  I used the mop to pin him down but he managed to crawl at the small hole of the  of the concrete so I could not grab him even with a plastic as  he would  open up his mouth every time he hears the plastic.  

Hubby gave me a tool to grab him but the hole was too small so I used a twizzer to grab  his lower lip.  He fought so hard but I dragged him out.  I am shaking as I am typing this lol.  I was literally terrified as the bat face reminds me of the horror movie I have watched when I was a kid that lingered in my mind.  My husband said I am so brave for catching it lol.  

We  suspected that the bat  came from the fruit orchard that our neighbor has.  He probably got cold and flew to yr chimney to get warmed but he fell inside our  heater.  Glad he did not die as it would have stunk inside.  I just find it creepy  that a bat would come to our house on Halloween time.  Glad we got him out.

i saw real bats for the first time in history of my life back in our trip to Mambukal Resort in Negros, they're not scary actually

not much into bats myself, probably because of the stigma about bats being vampires, hehe!

Scary little bat. Just look at those teeth, so sharp! I'm scared of bats just because they might bite. Good thing you were not bitten, sis.

LOL! The bat was on time for the Halloween season. What a day to show up in your house. It would scare me too. I would not even want to touch a bat with bare hands afraid it might be me and have some kind of poison. I don't know, I am just a scaredy cat. LOL! Kudos to you for catching it even if you were scared.
