    Normally we suggest anti biotics with cat caught however, this is an adult, appears healthy and alert.
    Although "supposedly" this time of year is not a breeding season I question the exposed nipples and
    wonder if she could be nursing. Flyers are nocturnal, they live in colonies. Personally I'd take her back
    outside, put her on a tree, and let her go! Keep the cat inside!

    Yes, definitely an adult. When the weather clears, free Willy.

    Itís still overcast but the rain is gone so I took her to the tree we think she may have been in and it took her a minute but she took off up the tree. Iím just glad she wasnít hurt.
