This little possum was in the bathroom at our office today. by the mess, she had been there all weekend. The door was shut, and we could find no holes in the floor, walls or ceiling. How she got there was a mystery with no answer. She was hungry and dehydrated. I boxed her up with water and food, which she devoured with gusto. At dusk we released her in willow brush by our pond (far away from the busy city streets). I wish her well....

her with my daughter:


I love her little grabby hands:

One night our little white poodle was outside (she was supposed to be using the bathroom) and she caught a little opossum like that one. Luckily she didn't hurt it. It was soo soft and cute, we put out some food for it. Good thing it didn't bite you it looks so tame. Very Happy

I had rehabilitated one about the same age several years ago. They like to show their teeth and drool, but only bite when they realy feel threatened. Usually, they just "play possum".
