A Furry Visitor

I don't know about you, but personally the only time I see a possum is on the side of the road. So imagine our surprise when we look out the window and see this:



It was licking the frozen water that was on our basketball goal. It was there for probably 5 minutes and then Harley saw it and started barking. I got a video of it running away back into the field by our house:

AAAAGGGGGGHHHHH! I hate oppossums!!! They are ugly and mean!!! And they are usually nocturnal creatures so it's even crazier that you saw him during the day...

OMG ewww, they are the ugliest creatures. Ok, there are worse but still he's not cute. LOL

PS. Thanks for the comment, and from the looks of your beautiful girls you should have some more. They are DARLING.

I used to see them all the time when I lived with my parents. We had cats and they would always come to eat the cats' food. They are the UGLIEST things alive. I would much rather see them on the side of the road than on my porch.

EEEWWWW!! They are soooo creepy!! When we lived in the country, almost every night 2 of them would come to the back porch and lurk around. It was so creepy. I still get shivers thinking about it.

Hopefully you never have to see that sucker again!

My parents live in the country and we'd sometimes wake up to possums on the front porch. We even had them climb up in our windows. LOL

Gotta love wildlife!

XOXO

I've only seen them at night time and their eyes glow this reddish glow at you. We almost ran one over once but stopped in time to avoid it. Have a happy weekend. : )
