A purloining possum and a robbing raccoon…

I was delighted to see this little guy, a very young possum, outside my mom’s windows last night.

He was helping himself to some cat food in the backyard.

Hence the clever name of this post.

It was a nice change of pace from the raccoons that usually come to steal the cat food…

But then I saw a few of them later, out of the front deck.

This one was deciding whether to scamper away into the big oak tree, or go back for a second helping.

A possum might not have a raccoon’s good looks.

But I still think they are sort of cute.

    They are so cute. We have a large one and 2 little ones that visit our yard. I love them. We put peanut butter and nuts or for them and they eat the fallen birdseed. I wish more people understood them..🙋🐦
