I was walking home to my favorite apartment in Los Angeles a handful of years ago and across the street I saw a woman look down at the ground and then make a sound of disgust as she purposefully kicked at something small on the ground. I crossed the street to investigate and found that what she kicked was a small fruitbat. The bat was still alive but not doing so well after being kicked by this strange woman. I wanted to run after her and kick her since according to her it's okay to kick strange living things. I felt a bit like a cop who has the choice of helping the victim or chasing down the criminal. I stayed with the bat and got some rubber gloves and moved him to a patch of ivy on my patio. He had a strange amount of personality in his eyes for a bat. I wondered what had sent him to the ground outside of my apartment. Had his echo-location device failed him? Did he get attacked by a bird or a cat? He wasn't looking very well there in my gloved hands. I tried to feed him a small insect and a piece of a grape but he seemed to know he was headed for the great cave in the sky. I left him in a comfortable spot on the ivy with the grape and bug offerings and hoped he was just stunned and might regain his strength and take off during the night. When I checked on him in the morning I found that he was dead. I found a box and had a small bat funeral. I apologized to his corpse. I told him that sometimes stupid, ignorant people will kick you when you are down before you can find the helpful ones. I wished him better luck in his next big excursion. Your photo-pairing made that night come back to me. Thank you for reconnecting me with with the memory of my frail little friend.
