late nite baby possum rescue x2
so i let the dogs out to go to the bathroom tonight before bed. they started barking like crazy, and i went to silence them and see what they were barking at. a baby possum (aka opossum) had fallen into the pool. i grabbed a nearby container and managed to save him from drowning. the poor little possum stood in shock shivering for a while. i was keeping a defensive watch over the guy and had put the dogs inside. i tried to feed it a blackberry because i looked it up on the internet, and they like to eat fruits. i could hear the mama possum running around in the bushes nearby, and i was waiting for her to come to the rescue. suddenly, a cat appeared about 2 feet away in full stalking mode. i had to save the possum, so i tossed my water bottle in the direction of the cat. the cat high tailed it out of there!! mission accomplished — baby possum was saved for the second time tonight :) eventually, the possum recovered from the shock and was able to scamper out of there.
