Baturday News is a weekly blog written by Rachael, a 7th grade student and Save Lucy volunteer. Rachael’s interest in bats was sparked by the big brown bats that used the outside of her former home for a winter roost. Her family cheerfully hosted this wild colony for years.

Hi Everyone! As you know, Tinybat passed away last week. Fierce and Tinybat were best friends and right now, Fierce is very sad. He is so sad that he wrote a poem. Here it is:

Ode to Tinybat

There once was a tiny bat.
We were friends and that was that.
Where oh where did he go?
In my heart, I don’t want to know.
Tinybat, why did you die?
I think I’ll just sit down and cry.

                                                                                             -Fierce 🙁

On a happier note, next week is Halloween. It will be Freda and Quinn’s first Halloween. They are both very excited about it and are looking forward to seeing all the trick or treaters. They are hoping for some candy! Maybe a yummy chocolate covered waxworm is in their future. Doesn’t that just sound lovely? I hope all the bats have a wonderful and spooky day. I hope you all do too!
