I just had to share this to go along with your Bat story. I came home (in Seattle) one hot summer night last year. Went to the toilet, lifted the lid, and low and behold, there swimming frantically was a large rat. Well, needless to say it startled me..ALOT. I didn't know what to do..I feared trying to flush it the way it came in would clog the toilet and it would end up swimming around the bathroom..anyway I did flush it, and it went away. (although I wasn't willing to look for five flushes).. Question: What would you have done?
