What was the closest you’ve been to a wild bat? For me it was about a metre. Last night, one somehow found it’s way into my bedroom through the open window and the gap below the blinds and then was frantically circling around the room, unable to find its way out again. It was so cute! Roughly the size of my hand with its wings fully open. It was bloody fast. It took me a while to see that it wasn’t some huge insect from hell about to eat me, but instead a cute little furry bat. And it was completely silent. So amazing. But, I don’t want to know what would have happened if I had been asleep already. The poor fella likely would have completely freaked out. Luckily, I wasn’t and everything went well. I got up, opened the blinds and in the blink of an eye, it was out again. Literally. I didn’t actually see it leave and was worried for a bit that it might have landed somewhere to hide.
