Remember back in November when the friendly fox visited us?
And we've had deer, bunnies and turtles come by too.
And I'm constantly being distracted by more common animals, like squirrels, birds, and our cats running around. But today we had a new kind of friendly backyard visitor, an opossum!
(Sorry for the cell phone quality pics!)
I know not everyone thinks they're cute, but being the animal lover that I am, I'm always happy to see another backyard friend! And they remind me of growing up in Washington State, where we would see them all the time. I don't think I ever saw an opossum the whole time we lived in California.
The best part of all? I totally thought it was just my blue point Siamese cat when I first spotted it out of the corner of my eye! It cracks me up just thinking about how insulted Hailey would be, that I thought she was a scruffy opossum.
Here's hoping we have just as many, if not more animals in our new backyard after we move!
