As I’ve mentioned before, we periodically find a possum on our deck snarfing leftover catfood. We named them Pogo for the comic strip, though it’s probably Pogo and Pogo II, as they don’t live a long time.
So a couple of weeks back, we got a visit from not only Pogo but Young Pogo. As you can see, Trixie was as surprised as we were.Here’s a closer look at the senior possum.When he got closer it was obvious he’d been attacked and torn up by something. And Young Pogo didn’t let him/her (we have no idea how to sex possums) eat so TYG, with her soft heart, put down a big bowl of extra food. Unlike Snowdrop, however, we’re not inviting them inside.
