Look who stopped by!

Look who stopped by! It's our friend Baby Possum! His momma brought him last year quite regularly, but we hadn't seen either of them for about 8 months. He's grown so much. When we last saw him, he was the size of an 8-week-old kitten. Now, he's about the size of a year-old one! His momma taught him to not bother the cats. He's a very nice possum baby.

He ate for a while,


then sat down and washed his face, just like we cats do!



He's scaredy of humans, so he ran away when Mommy went to put more food out for him.

I think I would be a little bit scared of a possum.

That'd make a nice fur throw (possums are pests her in NZ)!

They're considered pests here in the U.S., too, but this one is nice. It doesn't eat people's garbage, doesn't go after pets, is polite to the cats, and hides from people. AND eats cat food!

We have never seen a possum but he looks cute.

We saw a possum walk through our yard just a few days ago...they haven't been around in awhile since the raccoons took over.
