Well, for the sixth time in two years, I got up to go into the kitchen and found a bat flying around my house. Few nights ago I woke at 2am to my girlfriend basically screaming "OMG SOMETHING IS IN THE ROOM!!" Talk about going from REM sleep to 1000 mph in a nano second. They're easy enough to catch and release I'm just stumped as to where they end up going. The one I just saw in my kitchen disappeared when I ran to go turn on some lights. My cats seemed to have chased it down through the floor into the basement, I have an old victorian i'm restoring and there is an open chase way from when I did my plumbing over. I lost him and don't know where it went.....****in great.
Are there any ways to keep bats away?

One of my tubby lard ass cats tries like hell to catch em but considering he can't get off the ground half the time, jumping in the air to catch a flying bat isn't really in his deck of cards.
What sucks is the walls in this house are empty, and are ballon framed, with the exception of the bathroom (remodeled no ballon and insulated), so this little bugger could be anywhere in my house, and reading up on em, they can squeeze into just about any tight little area. Looks like I'll be sleeping light tonight.

bats you say?
You don’t have to be the world’s greatest badass to be a man, but you have to be willing to throw down when the time is right.

You need to talk to a doctor and potentially get Rabies shots. If you wake up, and there is a bat in your room you need to be vaccinated for Rabies. Bat's teeth are so small that you may not feel the bite if you are asleep, particularly if you have had anything to drink or if anyone in your house has a mental handicap. I'm not joking. If you contract Rabies, you are going to die. There are many people who die from Rabies who never knew they were bit, and it is presumable that they contracted the disease from bats that are in the house, and did not know that they were bitten.

When we first bought the house, we set our bed up in the second living room a we were doing renos upstairs. We celebrated with a nice bottle of champagne and some chinese food and went to bed. Well around 2-3am, slightly tipsy from the bubbly, my GF who is a very light sleeper, wakes up and says theres a big moth in the room. As I turned on the light, I realized it was a bat. I got up while she hid under the blankets and it flew into my other living room. Not having installed any lights or bulbs, he had the advantage as I couldn't see. Well, let me tell you something, that little ****er did a half circle flight around the room, and flew right for me head. He ricochetted off my forehead, and I screamed like the biggest woman you have ever heard and ran the other way. It was pretty funny.
