The possum

We were putting our bikes back in the shed in the backyard and we saw a neighbor through the fence. She says, " I just wanted to let you know I have seen the most gigantic possum running through your yard and into your shed all the time! Just wanted to let you know!"

Ha ha ha! Gross. Fortunately the door squeaks really loudly, so hopefully we need never see him/her.

On that note, maybe I shouldn't be feeding stray "cats." lol.

  2. Ick! I can't tell you how many possums I got to find dead on my parents property growing up. Let's just say the dog had a thing for going after them...

  4. I have a really funny story. We also were feeding a stray cat outside and one day I saw a very large white opossum with the thickest prettiest coat of fur I'd ever seen. I realized immediately that he had been eating the cat food hence the full beautiful coat. My son had been inside and I heard him come out the back door right as I saw the opossum and then I heard him slam the door. I ran inside to be sure he was okay and he was crying saying he saw a big white mouse. My husband and I still laugh about that and how horrifying that must have been for my poor little boy!!
