There's a Possum in my Yard!













Vicki and Paul turned the outside light on the other night and saw this guy poking around on the back verandah. It might be the same little guy that ran up the stairs one night and looked in at us eating dinner - very cheeky!

I promise you I live in harmony with the brush tail possums - they are nearly as big as me and I don't like the look of their claws! They patrol my perimeters at night when I am inside relaxing with Vicki & Paul.

  2. Wow! We've never seen a possum. Even our human has never seen a possum except on TV or in photos. Are they vicious? We think he's kinda cute!

  8. We get them too, they are mean critters. Stay away from them. Have a very Happy Easter to you and your family.

  11. Your possum is cute compared to ours....maybe it's the tail and the eyes that are less scary. Ours has hairless, ratlike tails and beady eyes....oh yes, and a long snout and pointy teeth! I like your possum way better!
