Daytime visitor

I was working on the trailer yesterday afternoon when I saw what I first thought was a rat crawling under the deck. I quickly realized that it was actually a young opossum.

Shoshie and I watched him for quite awhile. She initially wanted to keep him for a pet but appropriately changed her mind. This may be somewhat related to his hissing at her when she got too close.He did like some carrot bits.

I read that most opossums never grow to adulthood because of predators. I just hope our cats don't find him.

He looked so cute, soft and fuzzy.PRM
