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.
