We had a Possum here too last year last winter. He believe it or not had befriended one of the strays that had been dropped off here. They slept together in the doghouse I have on my porch for the kitties to sleep in.

OHH I found the picture... Imagine my surprise when I first saw this! Pic was taken through my patio window.. The kitty doesn't look the least pic worried.. she was actually sleeping. She's in the upper left.. We had built a little ledge so more than one cat could sleep in there.



Close up of Mr.Possum..
