We live in a subdivision but it’s kind of out in the country. Our backyard backs onto a farmer’s field so we’re not strangers to wildlife….however we’ve had a few interesting visitors over the past couple of years.
Last spring we had a porcupine come and make himself at home in our pine tree. My husband named him “Charlie” which made a little difficult to try to get rid of him! It took my brother-in-law with his live trap to finally relocate him waaaaaay far away from here.
Yesterday, we saw this little guy in our backyard. Turns out he’s a possum! I didn’t think we had them in this area but apparently they have made themselves quite at home in Southern Ontario. The cat wasn’t terribly impressed with him and on further investigation it looks like he might be making himself at home under our deck. John has put our brother-in-law Rob on alert that we may require his trap and expertise once again. Sigh.
