Early Morning Visitors!

Last Saturday morning at 6am we had visitors! We woke Mommy and Daddy up so they wouldn't miss meeting them and I'm sure they'd agree our visitors were worth waking up for. Here's our visitors Mom O. Possum and her babies Clingy and Sticky.
Mommy, can we go out and play with our visitors?
Clingy and Sticky are kind of cute aren't they Mommy? Mom O. Possum kept walking around the deck trying to figure out how to get to her other 4 (or more) babies who were calling for her from underneath the deck.
Mom O. Possum came over to ask Isabella how to get off the deck.
*Sorry but I've never even been on the deck so can't help you*
She finally found her way back to her other babies but I hope she comes back to visit another time! Sorry for the blurriness of some of the pictures but our photographer wasn't quite awake that early on a Saturday morning.

Hope you have a great Monday!

What unusual visitors you had! How nice that your cats woke you up in time for you to take their picture for this blog post. I'm glad mom found her way off the deck eventually.

Oh my gosh, how cute! I love how they cling to their mom's back :)
I'm glad the kitties were helpful - have a great Monday!

Grampy said...

What a great picture. We get the possums all the time but mostly at night time.
She must have been hungry and was looking for some food.
Thanks for sharing.

These are such great photos - we have a lot of possums around here, but I've never seen the babies riding like that. Glad the mom found the other babies.

And Isabella looks like she can't believe the possum came right up to the window :)

Nancy said...

What a great way to start the day, with such wonderful visitors, I know I would've been thrilled to see them!

Pamela, Kira and Scampi said...

Wooo! We get those, but I try to play with them and they just "die". I do not understand those critters at all. Don't they like dogs? They seem to like khats!

Tulip's Talking said...

Ohhh, that is so cute Angel. Isabella, it was kind of you to try to give directions.

Looks like a good Mom O. Possum, and Clingy & Sticky are such cuties, but never ever as cute as you!

We do not like those in our yard though, because our furbabies are indoor/outdoor. Blondie Love caught a youngster last week and her Daddy had to move it away from here.

That is a nice surprise. My parents had one living in their Cyprus tree for quite some time, until it decided to take-up permanent residence in their tool shed. It became a pet, which they fed and cared for.

We love the sweetness of the momma and her babies. We also love that you named them such fitting names. I thought I was alone in thinking that oppossums are so cute!

Stacy said...

I think Issy was thinking something more like "Oh look! Sunday Brunch Delivery's here!!"

but her comment; "I don't know, I've never been on the deck" cracked me up!
