Sonuvabitch. I was just watching Animal Planet and they had a sequence about bats: bats never attack people, bats eat bad insects, etc. All of which I agree with. I like bats.

For some reason, bats like me, too. Since I've lived here, in my rental and my house, I've called animal rescue several times to get a bat out and taken to the bat cave at the zoo. The bats here are very cute, btw -- they look like little pug dogs with wings.

Anyway, when my cat Harry got sick, me and the vets went nearly crazy trying to figure out the origin of his illness, cryptococcus. Harry was an indoor cat, see, and his exposure was a maddening question mark. I told the vets about the day I found a little bat head and part of a wing, but they didn't think it was related at all.

But on AP just now they mentioned that even non vampiric bats carry dangerous fungal infections, and mentioned cryptococcus.

Oh, Harry. You brought down a flying bat, and the bat killed you in turn. My poor crazy boy.

I miss you.
