Baby Orphan Bats

Tiny bundles of baby bat joy all swaddled in comfy blankies, filling their bellies with yummy food and absurdly, ridiculously, impossible adorable! Who knew bats were so cute?

The Australian Bat Clinic cares for hundreds of bats at a time, and this is just a small section of the nursery. They get to hang around with their buddies, and when they get older, there's another section closer to what it would be like in the wild so they can get used to that before they're released.

Anybody else suddenly need a baby bat like I do?

P.S. I want to say a special thank you to a wonderful Cutehead, Tia R. Yesterday I got a very touching and beautiful present from her in the mail. It was a total surprise, and I just love it. She gifted me her first piece of art. She said she wanted me to have it in memory of Pea and honor of Phantom.

She called it a ZIA (or Zentangle Inspired Art). I had never heard of a zentagle, so I headed over to Google and learned it's relaxing, calming kind of art. We could all use some more of that in our lives!

I had no idea this was coming, and I'm so touched that she thought to gift it to me. I have met some of the best people through this blog and all of the things we're able to do together!

Thank you, Tia! :)

  1. I love baby animals of any kind, but those bats are just adorable!

    That artwork that Tia sent you is beautiful! I'd love to have a chance to buy a piece of her art, if she is selling it. She is a natural. You are very lucky to have such sweet fans, Dorian.

  2. Oh my! Baby bats all swaddled up, squeaking, eating from bottles are just too much!!! Who knew indeed. Adorable.

    I never expected to think the bats are cute, but their little faces are adorable. What a great gift you received. The art is lovely.

  10. Nice cat art! Lucky you!

    Also, I always liked (most adult bats, but who knew thosw babies could be so cute> Furry, biiiig eyed, perky little ears--they resemble a mix of baby kittens & puppies! Love the bottle feeding! Thanks for showing these!

  11. I love those little baby bats all swaddled up! Those little peeps and those little busy ears and bright, bright eyes! And that one shot where she gives a little one his bottle and, NAB! He grabs it instantly. With all those tiny babies this honestly must be a 24-hour-a-day job. Wow! That is truly dedication for those tinies!
