Last weekend I went home for a visit. Saturday morning I woke up with a scratch/cut like mark on my left hand. I didnít really noticed it until I went to wash my hands and it stung. I didnít think anything of it then, but now Iím wondering. What if it was a bat? I hadnít looked around at the time, would I have definitely noticed if there was one? Or is it possible that it came down and escaped all while I was still asleep? Or was it hiding somewhere when I woke up? Iím just really anxious because I live in the US where bats are a concern for rabies infection. I feel like Iím being unreasonable but I just wish Iíd checked around my room.

Nope it wasn't a bat - how did it get in your room and bite you then escape again?

Sorry to say but yes you are being unreasonable.

I probably am. I guess Iím just concerned because itís a pretty long scratch and I donít know how it got there. Have you ever gotten a random cut/scratch?

Oh more than I care to think! And my other half too, he found one yesterday morning that he has no idea where it came from. Iím our case he could of scratched it in his sleep or maybe the cat did! But we sleep right by two large open windows each night and never worry about the wildlife!

I can safely say that EVERYONE has gotten a cut, scratch or bruise and has no recollection of it happening. (And it wasn't from some invisible rabies infested ninja bat!)

Do you have long nails?

Btw I have attached an image of what the scratch looks like now. It has scabbed over a bit but it used to be more red.

Honestly it looks like a scratch from possibly itching yourself too hard, maybe even in your sleep, I don't have sharp nails either but it still happens to me from time to time

I guess youíre right. It also wouldnít really make sense considering I keep my door and windows closed and my lights on throughout the night (bad habit but I sleep late and forget to turn them off). If there was a bat Iím sure I would have noticed.

Haha well hopefully you wonít have to do that!
