There were 4 little possums here in the Hollow that were becoming a nuisance. They had taken up residence beneath this old house. WHY? Because something smells yummy and just a hop, skip and a jump.away... through the tunnel, along a dark, twisty stairway, meandering along the alleyway, and up through a mousey doorway is a tasty bowl of
GREAT TASTING BITE SIZE KIBBLE BITS AND PIECES OF FISHY, BEEFY AND CHICKEN FLAVORED DELIGHTS.
In other words, CAT FOOD.
In the MUD room, is where 4 possum tykes gather in the wee hours of the night.
It is time to take action. We catch the sneaky little thieves one by one, day by day... 10 days in a row! We take them into the woods, but they keep returning.
We decide to spray paint the tip of their tales to determine whether or not we are capturing the same possum over and over again. Blue, green yellow and red tailed possums.
The little red tailed possum came back 3 times!
So we took him further into the woods.
What self respecting adolescent possum would not love to live here??
Moss, mushrooms acorns and seeds!!!
Little possums timidly cross the threshold
the sheer joy,
I bid the possums a fare thee well, wish them the best of luck and tell them,
" No offense, but, I never want to see you again!"
Update: It is 11:00 in the evening, and so far, so good.
