Something we have been missing returned to Marta and I


We have our first possum feeding in the back yard in almost 2 years. Descendant of Buddy?

Everybody in the neighborhood called him Buddy, this mornings roadkill


He lost his mom last fall to a dog. As far as we know, he was the only sibling that survived the winter. Buddy was missing most of his tail thanks to a dog this January. We live literally next to Fontenell Forest. Somehow he got the name Buddy. Everybody left out food and watched over him (her?) all winter. This morning as I left for work, I saw Buddy in the middle of the road. This photo was taken on our back patio last month.

2. He is cute. We had two opposum living outside with the feral cats we were feeding

and they all got along so well. I guess they all grew up together.

Very nice photo. I hope he survives.

3. Maybe buddy made a baby? It's possible.

Even if not, it's another wild creature trying to eek out an existence. Be kind, as I'm sure you will. If nothing else do it for the memory of Buddy.

I have a raccoon that hangs out here off and in I call stubbins. He lost most of his tail and was a runty, scraggly looking thing. I kind of took him in and now he's huge! He's the biggest raccoon I've ever seen. He now runs off the plethora of other raccoons that used to be a major nuisance.

The other raccoons used to beat the crap out of him. Maybe he has an attitude from that? Dunno.
