Whom should I bite first?

Am I going to get rabies? I found a little brown bat on the floor of my house this evening (~9 pm). It was curled up on the floor so I thought it was a leaf. Anyway I scooped it into a mesh wastebasket and it immediately fluttered up to the top of the inverted basket. [more inside]
