Baby Opossum

Sugar has been very interested in our garbage cans since last evening. Turns out there was a little reason for that. How cute is this:
 A little baby opossum was snacking on our refuse. 
Bill put a stick near its cute little baby opossum tail and it instinctually grabbed on. He also used his tiny opposable digits to cling to the garbage bag. Eventually he let go and Bill lowered him to the ground, at which time the little marsupial ran under (and likely into) our car. But that rescue mission is for tomorrow. 

Sugar watched the circus from the kitchen.

  1. I had an opossum doing the same thing in my refuse when I lived in Alexandria. I wouldn't go so far as to say they are cute. Pretty cool that it curled the tail around the stick. Hope it didn't commute with you to work the next day.
