I love most of God’s creatures including all manner of creepy crawlies. So when Rowdy alerted me to a special toy in the grass I was happy to save the life of a pretty little snake she had been torturing on a lovely sunny afternoon.
Of course I find helpless little varmints along my walks in our beautiful neighborhood too. The latest was a cute baby bat I found struggling on the hot sidewalk in front of my friend Cindy’s shop in our town square.
I took him home and Jim said I’m not allowed to keep a bat for a pet. He’s such party pooper! I said I thought there might be something wrong with him and I should put him in our chicken coop for a few days to recover from his injuries. No again! Jim said, “Put him in the oak tree and then go WASH YOUR HANDS!”
OK! Fine, you don’t have to tell me twice! 😦
Soon he started crawling to the top of the tree and I realized that there was nothing wrong with him at all. I hope he stays in our tree. I’d love to have a backyard bat! Maybe we could play baseball with him. 🙂
