Bat L

This afternoon Duncan The Vet handed me a pillow case containing 8 grams of growling anger. She is a broadnosed bat. I can't see anything wrong with her, but she had some mites in her fur that you see on bats who aren't well enough to groom properly. I don't think she's been feeding herself properly judging by the way she scarfed down a dozen meal worms.

And so Lucretia enters my life.
