A little visitor

So yesterday I came home in a rather pissy mood, but the one thing I did notice was this trap placed outside on my patio... I didn't know who set it or why, I was just hoping it wasn't for a skunk... That would have been a surprise that would have surely put my over the edge with as I was leaving for work last night. I went to work last night and the trap was still empty, but when I got home this morning ...
This little guy was there to greet me... I hope who ever comes to pick him up takes him far out in the wild as opposed to another option. We already got one last night with our train, I don't want to see this guy done low like that!

We used to have those around my house growing up. One year we had a garage fire and found one of them burnt to a crisp in our backyard a few days later. He must have tried to make a run for it, but it was too late.

I captured one of those under my house a couple of months ago, but by the time I got it out, he wasn't in a growling mood anymore (he was actually a stinky little fellow.)

Had dog once that loved to catch and kill those nasty things:

I hate possums. I had one in my kitchen once. I ran outside in my pajamas and screamed like I was being murdered.

Scary Scary! I had one in my garage not very long ago. My hero of a husband chased it away with a broom!!! LOL - they can be very dangerous though so be careful!

I have only seen one possum in the wild in my entire life--don't think we have too many of them here. I think they are cute, but, I have never had one in my house! Then again, I STILL think raccoons are cute and they HAVE lived in our house. Oh, well.

Poor little bubba. My mom's got one of those that shows up at night and eats cat food on the back porch.

That is cool, I have never seen one before. I dont think we have any around here. Do you know who put the cage there?
