This was a first! We’ve caught possums and raccoons in traps but we this afternoon Vince went to get eggs and there were no eggs but there was a possum sleeping in one of the egg boxes.
He was full! It was soft, comfy and quiet in that nesting box. Vince poked him with a stick and tried to get him to get up and run out but he had no interest in leaving on his own.
I told Vince . . it’s a really good thing you were the one getting eggs today because when I open those egg doors, my nose is about 2″ above the boxes and I would have been eyeball to eyeball with him and I would probably have had a heart attack.
I will never open that egg door again without wondering what I’m going to find in there.
