Possum eviction Part 2.

This afternoon we hung the possum houses on a fence down the side of the house. It’s very shady and hopefully the possums feel it’s safe enough too!
I managed to entice one of the resident possums into the first house in the row. We call him Sniffer because he sniffs really loudly.

old pearly jenkins

Each night I’ll keep encouraging them to go into the boxes.  I really hope it works (fingers crossed).

    You are a much kinder person than I. I hope these guys really appreciate the kindness you have sent their way. I mean really…how many people do you know who would build houses for the creatures who moved in? You are a riot! And they are starting to grow on me…too cute!

    • Thankyou! I think we may need to make a slight adjustment to the hole to Sniffer’s house. When we pick up Rosebush (the cat) and she’s not expecting it, she makes a funny squeaky noise. Well last night ‘ol Sniffer’ made the same squeaky noise when he was trying to squeeze his way back out of the hole. It was funny.

  3. OK, your possums down under are adorable. The ones here in the states look exactly like giant rats with human hands…and they are mean. They Hisss and show their teeth when scared. They also eat all my figs, 😦
