Eeeek! You got close enough to take pictures?!

Mom of the Perpetually Grounded said...

That's life. You find the Perfect Nest Ever and someone kicks you out ; ) That is one angry little critter!

Mamma has spoken said...

Aw a possum :o) And he just had to wake him up ;o)

Deborah said...

What the hell!? Did this happen?? I've seen mice around here, but I'd die if I saw this!

Are you so glad you got that little (literal) rat-bastard?

Lori G said...

Oh-Possum! How Sweet!
My goodness, your Hubby is Very Brave!! Cute little buggers but Yikes!
See,... Eeveryone wants to stay at Granny's!

Betty Manousos said...

yikes, but he looks very angry!!

thanks for sharing:)

big hugs!

Furry Bottoms said...

A baby possum!!! A teen at least. The possums I see are gigantic, raccoon sized! This one is wee tiny.

Sally said...

Oh.My.Word. Was he in the dryer? I couldn't quite tell, but honey you are SO blessed to have someone pick it up. EEEWWW

Megan Adamson said...

Ugh, we get rats around here, but I'd never get THAT close to one!
Horrible little vermin's....

So. Cal. Gal said...

Remind me never to move to TX. ; )

Sarah said...

OMG! How did it get in???

George said...

I think the less said about this critter the better. I am, however, glad you evicted him.

Barbara said...

Ah, I'm so glad y'all were able to get it out of there without anyone getting hurt! I don't think it's very happy about its nest being disturbed, though! lol

Margaret (Peggy or Peg too) said...

okay city girl here freaking out.
I love the header photo but not the others so much!!!

Pat Tillett said...

Granny used to tell us that possums were our friends. "If you have possums, you won't have rats!" I think they are pretty cute.
When they look like this, they aren't mad, they are scared...

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

He was brave enough to grab it with his hand? I know it was a baby, but those are mean! EEKS!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Oh My... That possum had the perfect nest, didn't he???? He didn't look like a Happy Camper.... ha

Hugs,
Betsy

Ami said...

Only thing worse than possum is a possum muffin. Ha.

gmarch53 said...

Poor lil Opossum! I agree with Pat...if you have them, not a rat to be seen! I have them living in my trees behind me. They come down at night and feed on the left over cat food I leave out for the stray cats. So do the Raccoons :D I LUV them ALL!!!

Annmarie Pipa said...

oh my gosh!! we had one in our garden, I don't know what I would have done if it were in my drain! lucky you got him to handle it!!

Copyboy said...

Did I mention I have 2 wonderful guinea pigs? One is gray. :)

Lisa said...

I know this was stressful and all. And yes - opossums - yuck. But this post tickled my funny bone.

PS. Glad the yucky critter has been relocated!

Joy Tilton said...

OMG that creeps me out so bad! I've not ever had an up close experience with a possum, would most likely do me in!

Nezzy said...

Oh my glory...I couldn't quite tell what he had made his home there but I for one hate the obtrusive little critters...they weird me out! Heeehehehe!!!

Have a bountiful blessed day sweetie, void of critters who gnash their teeth!!! :o)

Yum-Yum said...

My guinea pigs took a vote. They voted that the little varmint is deserving of a wonderful home where nobody can ever find him again because he scared them. Thank you, they said. Now they are going to have
nightmares, they said. That is what they said, don't shoot the messenger!
Ha-ha-ha. Gotta love Texas!

NCmountainwoman said...

Why, that little rascal. Glad you safely evicted him.

In Love With Sunflower said...

I was guessing what the first picture was... the succeeding photos were what I thought it was! It's a big one huh?

Hugs,
Farida :)

Annmarie Pipa said...

I came back to look at the vent. still doesn't look good!!

Words Of Deliciousness said...

That Opossum doesn't look too happy. I glad it wasn't in my vent.

Sarah said...

Better alive than dead! We had a squirrel fall down our chimney, and our roommate didn't hear it (or something) and days later it started to smell down there...sadness. It was dead. I think we could've saved it like you did the possum had we known about it!

Nancy said...

Nasty little suckers. Glad he wasn't any bigger.

troutbirder said...

Was he playing dead when grabbed? Those big teeth look kinda scarry though.... :)

Judie said...

Hmmm! This critter looks vaguely familiar! My son had one that came to the front door every night, looking to be fed! In Arizona, we deal with packrats--much cuter, but eaters of insullation off important wiring!!! Shocking, isn't it!!!

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

That's the most amusing, and a bit creepy looking, vent I've ever witnessed. Thanks, MsA.

Vicki Lane said...

A great series of photos. I'm a fan of possums -- as long as they stay out of my chicken house. I hope this one got safely relocated.

Katherines Corner said...

Wholly Possum batman! giggle, that is one ugly little critter. Where did he get relocated?

Momma Fargo said...

Heavens to Mergatroid! That was scary.

Shrinky said...

I've never seen a possum before, it was only reading through your comments I found out that is what this critter is. Awww, least you didn't kill it! I probably could live with one around my back yard, but nope, I hate the thought of sharing my cereal with it!

woopig said...

THere is just no getting around it---possums are cute till they open up their little mouths and you see all those teeth. Also, the naked tail doesn't add any charm to them either.

Jenny said...

What the heck is it? I'm afeared! I can't believe it made a home in there. Yikes. Your fella is quite brave!

Carrie Lynne said...

OMG flashbacks of the raccoon...
