    Well the wife was heading out the door to go to work and this little guy was in between her and the car. From the way the cats were acting he comes around often and they don't mind to share there food with him. So I just let him be and low and behold he was back again last night. Looks like I got a new pet..... I wish i could have got a picture of the wifes face....

    I use to have on that come on the back porch and eat with the dog. He would scoot the dog over and they would eat at the same time.
    He got to about 25 lbs I never did know what happened to him.

    I'd have been scrambling for the shotgun and not the camera:waaaht: I just capped off about a month of trapping vermin in my back yard. I got 10 coons and 2 kittys. I just about didn't have any garbage in the cans come garbage day. Every single night they'd tip the cans and dig in.

    gotta watch those things,

    several years ago we had one that would come in and eat with the cats. thot it was cute. my sister went out one night and the thing went after her. thot maybe it was just her. but from then on anyone that went out would get attacked. had to put it down. I dont trust them a bit.

    Caution!I personally know that a full grown possum can and will kill and eat a small grown Dog or Cat.You have a potential tragedy there.I am 61.Both times the cats and dogs lost their fear of the possum with time.The second time was my fault as I knew better.The possum was only doing the normal possum thing.Anything that does not eat them is a meal.They have a large mouth and teeth with bone crushing jaws.Those teeth instantly penetrate into a Cats or small dogs brain.It was over before it started.I found out why the Cats were disappearing.Both possums arrived small and grew up on dry dog food with our animals.When they got large enough,nature took it's course.Coons will do the same.peewee-williams

    Oh, I have had my far run in with them but this little guy I just coundn't shoot him. lord knows how long he has been hanging around. I know he is a wild animal and i know what kind of bite they have but for now he seems harmless just trying to get an easy meal.

    can't hardly stand them varmits since one day out hunting. Came across a dead cow laying in a shallow crick. it was blown up like a Macy's parade balloon float. Thought i would shoot a couple holes in it and watch it deflate.
    After i shot it it started to wiggle!!!! Then a big bloody possum crawled right out it's a$$hole!! Grossiest critter i ever saw!!!

    I think I've made buzzard bait out of 6 of them in the 2 years we've lived at this spot. Also a copperhead and 2 coons.

    So far this year I have gotten two possums out of the cat food.Don't like the darn things and never will. Can't seem to get the big ol fat coon though. I go out the door and it's gone. Maybe one of these days I'll get me a Davy Crockett Coon skin Hat.:roll_eyes: Got to watch those wild animals.

    i gotta agree with kenny
    a possum with a tire track hairdo is a trust worthy possum

    take a 9 iron to its skull before he makes mincemeat out of your pet cats.
    they look like a leftover creature from a lord of the rings movie .
    i cant get attatched to that ugly of a critter for nothing

    as waterboys momma would say
    possums are the devil
