Had a dream that I had a little bat friend who visited me every night. I called him Bruce and fed him pears. Bruce was away for a few days and when he came back he was very ill. I tried to give him some pear but he just sat sadly on the windowsill. In the morning, I found him curled up dead on my chest.
A leading chiropterologist (not battologist, sadly. Interestingly, a battologist is a wearisome repetition of words) took him off me to autopsy. He discovered that a terrible disease was killing bats and the best way to combat it was to give them pear. Unfortunately, it couldn't save Bruce.
The photo of Bruce, who looks like the little guy in the attached image, and me was used in the Bruce Brings the Bats Back
campaign and I became known as BatGirl: Defender of Bats.
