So, I had a small brown bat get into my apartment lastnight. Not sure how. It must've been hanging around my front door to feed on bugs and when I returned from my evening walk, it managed to sneak in. I was in my room when I heard a sudden chirp and squeak sound. I opened the door and noticed it flying around my living room. I have 2 cats that were kind of chasing after it, but I think they were a little spooked since they're indoor cats and not used to seeing other animals. It just flew around in a counter-clockwise motion. I didn't chase after it. I just waited until the path was clear and ran downstairs to open my front door. After 5 minutes, the bat eventually flew out. I checked my apartment not long after. The window screens are intact. I don't have any exposed vents or holes/openings for a bat to fit through. I'm not sure if there's a colony of them in my complex or not. I'm going to call my landlord to see if there have been any complaints from other residents. I don't think my cats were bitten, but I can't say for sure. In fact, I don't know how long it could've been in my apartment. I noticed it about an hour after I got home. My cats tried swatting at it from time to time, but I'm concerned for them since it could've been rabid. According to the vet I spoke to over the phone, they should still be okay since their vaccine (which I got last September) is good through next month, but they're going to need a new one soon. I made an appointment to re-up their vaccine on Saturday, which will be good for 3 years. My cats seem fine. They were eating and behaving like normal and I haven't noticed anything indicative of an actual fight with the bat. But still, I want to make sure they're up on their shots. Anyway, has anyone with kids and/or pets had a bat or other wild animal encounter? If so, share your stories.
