Maddie update

The little bat still spends a lot of time resting. Understandable, really, since she should be hibernating at this time of year. She's looking fat once more and has put on a whole gram of weight. 5 grams! whoa.

What is even better is that she is self feeding now, so all I have to do is fill the dish with meal worm segments and she eats when she feels like it. My only contact with her is the occaional weighing session. She doesn't like those at all and complains loudly to the management about the lack of respect shown by the employees.

Now that night time temperatures have hit below 0C I can't release her. This means she'll be in long term care until mid August at least. Maybe the staff will show a little respect by then.
