Our house backs up onto a conservation area and we get lots of the usual – squirrels, raccoons, armadillos, deer, etc. You would think that we would have seen possums before, but really we’ve had no sightings to speak of. So when I looked out of the window and wondered why a cat was eating my birdseed, I had to look a little closer.
Possums would actually be kind of cute if they didn’t have those creepy rat-like tails. This one was fat enough to look pregnant, so I don’t begrudge her a little protein from sunflower seeds – eat away little mommy!
