    Jesus wept, never moved so damn fast. Just sat here minding my own business and see what I think is a moth out of hte corner of my eye flying around, take a second look and it's a bloody bat! About 8inches across flying around in circles.

    I've never moved so fast in my life, bolting out of the room and slamming the door so loud behind me it wakes the whole family.

    Fortunately it's just left of it's own accord out of the open window...I hope :eek:

    No but still bloody scary :D

    What was best was how it was literally a case of "QUICK! TO THE INTERNET!", as I grabbed my laptop on the way out and instantly started Googling how to get rid of a bat.

    Don't worry, I'm it's laid eggs on your pillow that will hatch and crawl into your brain.

    I already went round shaking every bit of furniture to make sure it wasn't hiding ;)

    Rats burrow deep. I wouldn't be surprised if it's still in there somewhere. I would find somewhere else to sleep tonight.

    Apparently they like being cleaned with a toothbrush - if it comes back, use that to distract it while you evacuate the neighbourhood.

    I got one in my room last year, not actually that bad apart from you dont really want it to be in there. Not like it is going to do anything, hopefully not poop anyway.
