The possibility of opossum

I've been on the lookout for the baby opossum who visited us last week. He was tiny (at first we thought he was a rat) and he had recently met with some misfortune for he had only half a tail, poor fellow. People keep trying to convince me that opossums are vermin, but as I watched him perch on the edge of the bowl and eat kibble delicately, one by one, all I could see was his good side.

It's the same thing with "weeds." Depends how you look at them.

They make wonderful pets if you get them about the size in your picture here. Interestingly, much better than raccoons, because no matter how sweet and tame your pet raccoon, they have terrible food aggression problems. Not the case with opossums.

Opossums are opossibly the operfect exotic opet. In my opinion.

If this exotic little opossum decides to befriend me, I think I'll name him Weed.
