They are cute, but, man are they mean!! All claws and teeth! We used to have one that visited our porch every night.

My mom used to tell about a pet possum she used to have. I'll have to ask about that...

eb said...

we used to have these cuties too - and in the middle of the night they would get into a bizarre and loud tussle with the local mama skunk - oh yikes! but now since the arrival of doxie girl - the critters walk a wide berth around our house - great pictures...

xox - eb.

Buddy and his buddy are positively adorable! It's been a while since I've seen one, but the one's I've seen were larger and more blond.

You're very lucky!
They are so sweet looking.

Aw and all I get is the stupid neighbour cat in my yard. I want a possum!

tongue in cheek said...

Oh my!! Their eyes! Taking comfort in your flowers!
They are cute, if not a little scary too.

What kind of animals are they.

I love animals, but possums freak me out. Especially two staring at me simultaneously. Great photos though :)

Bri said...

Dah! They're so cute! Does Buddy's buddy have a name? Hopefully it's something clandestine and fabulously overdone. :D Glad you liked the snippet btw!

susan...when you find out, please share :)

eb...lol...the doxie scares them!?! phil, our yellow lab is afraid of the possums!

corey...yes, i just love that he lays on a bed of flowers!

britt-arnhild...they are opossums.

sognatrice...yes, 2 staring at you is a bit disconcerting!

bri...this may be disappointing, but his friend's name is "blackie"...not very original!
