Things that go bump, clang, bang, crackle, crawl in the night!?! Last night, in the pitch black dead of night I heard some noises coming from the kitchen. In my half awake state I snapped my fingers a few times from my bed thinking it must be a cat and then tried to fall back to sleep. Then more slams, cups dropping, pots & pans banging, jumping sounds ... it was getting downright rowdy up in der'! I got up without my flashlight and walked through the blackness to the sink where the sounds came from, sticking my face like 5 inches from the pile of dishes. I could feel the presence of something in the sink, and could almost make out a shape but there was no movement or response, so I went to a switch and clicked on the light. WAMMO! I got a new wittle yittle buddy - an opossum crawled out the sink and onto the stove.
I carefully made my way back to my bedroom to grab my camera, came back to the stove which then made the 'possum a little nervous so it crawled to the open window for safety. SO KEYyyy-ute! And so small, barely even a possum teenager. The thing about opossums that most people don't know are they are not gross or bad creatures, they generally think things through and tend to not attack. They are not a common carrier of rabies and their special job in the eco system is garbage pick up! They are the ones that keep shit clean, ya'll- by eating everything left behind. I WUve opossums so much, I hope my new friend comes back and we can be cool with each other, in that snugly way. I asked it to please just not make so much noise and it could stay, I think it was a good deal. I went ahead and turned out the light and went back to sleep.
They have the prettiest ears of most any animal I have ever seen, and also amazing grip.
