Baturday, because Caturday is so last week

"Post some fucking bats!", a Tumblog of Greatness. (thanks, Antinous)


  1. Obligatory.

    “I’m sorry, I can’t say the letter ‘b'”
    “Yes, that’s right.”

    1. Mr Smoke-Too-Much!

      Paraphrasing from memory:
      “When I was a lad, I was attacked by a bat”
      “A cat?”
      “No, a bat”

  2. Had to do goddamn rabies shots recently because one got in the house and there was a remote possibility it might have brushed against me (because you can’t feel their tiny teeth bite, and bat-carried rabies is extra-super virulent).

    Not exactly filled with positive feelings toward the little fuckers at the moment.

    1. Compare the number of cases of rabies in humans with the number of cases of West Nile virus and other mosquito-borne diseases. Bats good.

      1.  Bats definitely good.  And they’ve been getting a bum rap for years.  But I just can’t see getting into the whole LOLBATs thing.

      2. Did ya see “Contagion”?  Somewhere in China, the wrong bat and the wrong pig met up and… yikes, it wasn’t pretty.

        From what I’ve seen on the teevee, bats’ preferred living accommodations would earn a Sanitary Inspection Grade “C”, tops.  But think about it, wouldn’t it be the same with cats?  I mean, if we weren’t there to scoop up the litter and clean the regurgitated hairballs.

  3. I can’t really tell — does that bat have its mouth open?
    I’ve seen Persian cats that look worse.
