AFTER ALL THAT WORK on the Possum Box, you'd think they would go there and hang out and leave the cat boxes alone, but NOooooooo...
Here is the first possum to come house hunting... in Spook's box. 'Course, it mighta been the bowl of crunchies in there... or maybe the heat was on and it felt good to toast the little pink toes... I dunno. Whatever the reason, this little fella comes by most every evening to see if any snacks are left in the bowl that definitely says KITTY. Anybody know where I can get a bowl that says POSSUM? Maybe I can get Elizabeth to make one for me. See the heating pad's cord on the bottom right? It is wrapped in wire to protect it from little possum teeth. They have 50, you know.

Then Possum #2, (what do you mean they all look alike!!!) dropped in to check out Hoover's new digs. And yes, there was a bowl of tuna in there and the heat was probably on... more little toasty pink toes.

I wondered if having the lights on in the little tiny greenhouses would keep them away last night... (the light is part of my 'bucket-of-bricks heating system)... but no, they just ambled on thru after checking out to see if any crumblies were left over. They don't know Hoover very well. I mean, why do they think we named her Hoover?????
This is Hoover sneaking around behind me while I got some shots of the fall colors. She fades into the scenery, but she is easy to hear in the dry leaves.

OK, next - the HUGE camellia bushes and other fall colors! (assuming this post works... sigh)

The possums sure love your place. I've never seen a live one.
