    My grandma always said "...They'll land in your hair and build a nest. Stay away from them..."

    He didn’t much appreciate me waking him but I wasn’t going to just leave him on the wall. I got him in little cage. He just wanted to go back to sleep.

    When a bat wakes up during dormancy, it burns calories that it can't replenish. Try to keep the cage as nearest to the place where it originally roosted. I hope everything works out in the best interests of all involved!

    Last bat got in my house I threw a bath towel over him and turned him loose outside. Course that was in the summer time. Maybe put him in another room and close the door, when it gets dark he'll probably start flying around, when that happens I knock'em down with the towel then cover him with the towel. No way would my wife let it stay in the house!

    I caught it last night. Put it in a cage. Contacted F&W. He said it was a silver haired bat. Not real common to be wintering here. He wanted to know what county. And gave me a list of rehabilitators in KY. I contacted one and am dropping it off with her tonight.
