No, it's not a cat

Yes, it is a possum!

I came home this evening after dinner with the in-laws and discovered a new tenant. It had just walked in the backdoor. Mil didn't turn a hair and wasn't interested. Granddad to the rescue with a blanket and it was walked outside!

What's next! We have had a spate of animal home invasions. I'm expecting the foxes and rabbits next week.

Aren't you lucky the possum was so amenable to being ushered outside! You'll have to keep those gauze doors closed! I do, because I worry that a snake might slither in when I'm not looking - not that one has in 40 years!, but this anxiety dates back about 50 years to when I was a teenager and we had a small red bellied black snake in our house - we didn't have gauze doors. I live somewhere completely different now, but when we had a cat, she used to deposit little (dead) brown snakes on the front door mat, so they are around somewhere.

I don't know about the possums in Australia, but the ones here FREAK me OUT because they just sit there and HISS at you instead of running away like most sensible wild animals. AAAAAAUUUUUGGGGHHHHH! I'm glad that one cooperated with relocation efforts.

Maybe it would like a little sweater knitted for it.
