Wordless Wednesday: Unexpected Visitor

Conversation the other morning:

"Mom? Murphy is going nuts in the back yard!"
"Oh? Well, it's probably a cat or squirrel."
"No, really, Mom. He sounds panicked!"

"All right...I'll go check it out..."

We have one that comes right up on our porch and eats the cat's food every night. I've almost reached down to pet him a couple times thinking it was the cat! ACK! I'm forever chasing that thing off the porch.

Oh, possums. My dog used to harass these constantly. They play dead and taste bad, so are pretty dog proof! Happy WW!

Cute possum! May I suggest a 98 Tri-Valley Cabernet to accompany him?
