Anyone out there a bat-ologist?

Today we had a terrible storm; the electricity was knocked out for a few hours. The kids just about went stir-crazy: no tv, no video/computer games, and no playing outside. After the storms passed, Jeremy went outside to walk around a bit. When he came back inside he had a surprise for us. He'd found a very small bat, half drowned in the storm apparently. We're not sure if it's a older baby or a young adult. I've given it sugar water and kept it warm. It has "pottied" (on me, thanks a lot!) and has bathed itself several times.

Does anyone out there in internetland have any bat care tips?

I'll try to get photos tomorrow.
