Your Pet Possums

I say possums definitely have appeal, even if they do get stuck in your garbage can and then pretend they’re dead, totally grossing you out. But the possums in these videos aren’t doing anything like that.

My wife once had a possum for a pet. She gave birth to a whole crowd of baby possums (“she” being the momma possum, not my wife: heaven forbid) and stowed some of them in the silverware drawer. The cats were very careful to give the possum all the space she wanted, and no fights broke out.

I had a half-grown possum in my bedroom once, but my mother saw it and had a bad moment.


A Passel of Possums

I had a baby possum once. I found him tooling around at the edge of the woods, he didn’t seem afraid of me, and so I brought him home and kept him in my room until my mother saw him and started screaming. Mothers don’t understand some things.

My wife had a possum in her house, too, before we met. Her possum had babies. Right there in the house. She didn’t throw them out!

I really don’t know what was wrong with my mother that day. Must’ve been something she ate.
