A possum has taken up residence in our backyard.
Husband and son discovered Mr. Possum yesterday. He was asleep under some broken wood.
Today’s cuppa reflects our human reaction, not Mr. Possum’s. Mr. P simply blinked, shifted to a more comfortable position, and then resumed his nap. He might also have rolled his eyes a bit at these crazy humans who were so amazed that nature was doing its thing right in our own backyard, but that’s not confirmed.
Possums eat rodents, snakes, and bugs, including roaches. Now that the initial freak-out is over, I’m ok with the arrangement. Welcome to your new home, neighbor.
