there, then I saw it, after turning my head back and forth a few times.
A friendly bat somehow got into our house. I had dealt with this before.
Remain calm or they sense your fear. Do not make sudden movements or flail,
they are blind and using sonar like navigation.
Turn on the lights in the house and open the door to the darkness of the night. They will fly out.
They need to circle a few times at least. Talk to them reassuringly. They are mammals. Say, "It is OK. This is the exit. You will be OK." Well, in your language, of course. Your calm tone of voice is the most important.
We are reassured he looked so big and healthy.
And that he flew around the room 3 times after we closed doors to isolate him in one room.
Fred and I stood in the doorways. Then he flew out.
We hoped there were more like him (outside), our accidental visitor.
