Baturday News is a weekly blog written by Rachael, a 7th grade student and Save Lucy volunteer. Rachael’s interest in bats was sparked by the big brown bats that used the outside of her former home for a winter roost. Her family cheerfully hosted this wild colony for years.
Hi everyone! I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and that you all got lots and lots of batty gifts. I got a huge stuffed vampire bat. It is very cute. Santa Bat came to visit the little bats at Save Lucy. Freda was very happy to celebrate her first Christmas with a big bowl of juicy mealworms. She had a lot of fun hiding in her stocking too. Fierce and Gladys had a lot of fun snuggling in a Santa hat. I think it was a very festive time for the bats!
The bats would like to thank everyone who has taken care of them and contributed to their care over the past year. Even though they sometimes have little squeaky fussing fits, they really do appreciate their humans.
[And we at Save Lucy would like to thank our wonderful volunteers who take care of bats at headquarters, blog, illustrate, rehabilitate, clean, fold, organize, field phone calls, and provide cheerful support all year–LS]
Merry Christmas! And Happy New Year!
