And, by belfrey, I mean master bedroom. While my Mamatu and my niece were visiting, I received a text around 11:30pm (long after we had all gone to bed) from my mother-in- law asking me to send Carl to their room because there was something flying around in there and it sounded big!
Carl and I got up and went to their room, turned on the light and found this little guy:
Now, I think bats are the most adorable rodents of them all, but even so, I don’t particularly want them flying in my bedroom at night. Fortunately for all, this little guy was quietly and easily moved outside with the help of an Amazon gift bag and we were all able to go back to sleep without any more excitement. Our adventures with the local wildlife continue!!!
We also (finally!) trapped this little guy who cleverly ate three spoonfuls of peanut butter from two different live traps without getting caught. He has been safely relocated many miles from the Manor and will hopefully live a happy and full life not in our attic. : )
We’ll keep trapping and moving, but the fact remains that until the house is properly sealed, we will likely continue to running into critters here and there as we go about bringing Mac n’ Cheese Manor back to life. My favorite part of the bat incident was the picture my talented niece drew the next morning on our whiteboard. Gram is the one hiding under the covers, my niece is the one sitting up with the blanket over her head and Carl and I are under the bat. LOL!
