This is complicated, so bear with me.
In my dream, I was dreaming about these bats with husky voices. They couldn’t squeak, so their echolocation wasn’t working. I sprayed helium at them and it gave them their squeaks back, and all was well.
When I woke up (in my dream), at 3 a.m. I wondered if that would really work, and felt I needed to find this out right now.
So I found an emergency vet and asked him. He was a bit puzzled. Unfortunately, I don’t remember if he told me that giving helium to gruff bats would work.
But then I figured I didn’t want to waste his time, so I came up with another vet question. I had all sorts of reasons for not wanting normal pets, and all sorts of reasons for not wanting any of the pets he suggested.
Until he came up with caterpillar mole. Apparently they are very cuddly, not much work, they don’t make a noise or a mess, and they just eat grass. Perfect!
