The opossum is the new nighttime visitor extraordinaire. Now that he has come around two times I am waiting with baited breath to see if he will be perched on the wall tonight.

Check out the long tail on the opossum hanging down.

The opossum tail is prehensile, which means they can wrap it around objects.

If you look very close, the opossum looking down at Irina the cat is visible through the blinds.

I am coming to have a new respect for this ancient marsupial, even though he will never be my favorite animal.

    1. Yes, Irina was looking out at it quite a few times when it was on the wall. The opossum is definitely looking down at her as well.
