    i used to not mind them, but since they are known to carry a disease that can be fatal to horses, i don’t like seeing them around here. 🙂

    I wish I could think the adults are cute, one killed 3 of my chickens and ducks. The babies do look cute to me.

    They do look very different from our marsupials – I’d really like to see this animal in the fur.

    ALWAYS cute! I feel like they get such a bad rap….they don’t even carry rabies.

    Pat, I’m not sure about cute! We have them around here too, but we don’t see them much.

  17. Usually I see them as roadkill. This one looks much nicer!

    I guess they are a bit cute. Not sure I like them hanging around my barns though. Would much prefer to see them out in the pasture.
