    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. 🙂

    Nice photo, where the Possum looks very calm and gentle. Black Kitty was in love with one back in Texas.

    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.

  16. Robin says:

    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.
