bat matters

I persuaded Ysabeau to eat one meal worm tonight. I had to push it in her mouth and hold it until she started, but it all went in. It's not much but it's a start.

In contrast, Xena rips through twenty worms a night. All I have to do for her is kill them and put them in a dish.

These two bats are so different in temperament. Ysabeau is quiet, timid, and gentle. She creeps around my hand looking for somewhere secure to hide. Xena is... well, Xena. It's all I can do to hold on to her.
