Also note that Zephyr wrote that one. That's what he wants us to think. Undoubtedly, the truth is much worse.

SHUSH!

I never met a rat, bat or hawk...but a squirrel once started chittering angrily at my house back in Indiana. And my cat has scared more than a few mice. He doesn't eat with them, he plays with them...TO DEATH. Literally. He's flattened more than one mouse for trying to escape.

I once had a squirrel climb up me to get the peanut I was holding. That really freaked me out.

I also have some cat/food/toy stories with sad endings (actually, some of them are hilarious).

While in Italy, -X- bought tiny little bags of birdseed to spread along the large squares for the pigeons. -X- opened the bag, poured it into his hand, and. . . Was completely swarmed by pigeons. They have very sharp claws, too. And they pecked. Everywhere. -X- felt like his weight doubled just because of the pigeons. Terrible.

In related news, -X-'s fake cousin has a flock of bats in his chimney, basement, attic, outside, and one on the top floor. His dad is very nice to them, too. -X- likes that. -X- always feels sorry for the little "pests" that live in peoples houses and are killed for it.

I crushed a bat today.

That's terrible!

My day has been traumatic enough with out having to hear about poor dead animals.

On a related note, I voted for the law that helps prevent cruelty to animals. Prop 204 is NOT Hogwash fools!

Sadly, I crushed a bat today. It had lived in my attic and shat all over the attic floor. It was not welcome and chose to not leave while there was no roof. It no longer has freedom of choice.

Yes, that's the problem with animals that get too close to humans.

Edit: With all this talk of bats, Dikiyoba tried to restrain Dikiyoba's self from posting this, but failed.

Is that a nail in that bat's ear?

No. I don't want to know. Or maybe I do. Well... No, I don't! I do! I can't decide! :eek:

I'll make a compromise: I don't want to know, but tell me anyway.

Looks like a bit of organic matter, like collected dust or wax, lodged into the hair of the bat.

In other news, I used to put my birds with clipped wings on the floor and watch them crawl up my leg while I played chess. So cute.

I see no nail.

Just a bat on a rock.

Back on topic for a bit.

No, it's not a nail. It's part of the bat's ear. I forget the technical term for it, but you can see it better here.

Phew. I'm glad that's just a piece of bat. That phrase was less disturbing in concept.

As a kid I used to feed the squirrels in the park. They would crawl all over me trying to get at the food I had, eat out of my hand, eat off my chest. Pretty tame and fat beasts they were.

Squirrels are incarnations of evil. Just so you know.

No. I truly believe that squirrels are the hell-born spawn of Satan made manifest in this world. The sig was just something topic-related from a webcomic.

That's it! I'm suing for libel!

I heard Tonya Harding is calling herself the Charles Barkley of figure skating. I was going to sue her for defamation of character, but then I realized I have no character.

Eh, both Gray and Black Squirrels are okay. The ones you have to watch for are the Red Squirrels, or, in some cases, Demon Squirrels.
