Visitor in the Dark

Hey Angel, what are you looking at?
Can't you see it Isabella? I know it's dark out but I'll turn on my headlights so you can see.
Do you see it now?
It's Sticky Opossum! He's bigger than the last time he visited.
Can he come in Mommy?

Oh my Gosh! An opossum! We don't have those here in Southwest Saskatchewan. We had a rat problem for a little while this summer (gross!) but they were NOT cute like the opossums!

Angel & Isabella - you are lucky to have such fun things to watch out your windows!

Milo and Alfie said...

WOW! We've NEVER seen one of those before!

Love and Peace to yoo all ~ we are taking part in the blogblast for Peace today.

The Creek Cats said...

We have those here too. Funny looking creatures!

Patrice @ The Soap Seduction said...

EWWWW! I hate those things! They are creepy!

The Monkeys said...

We don't think our Mom would let that friend come in either! She is no fun!

LazyTcrochet said...

love the kitty headlights!
Hi - hope you are well ((hugs))

The Island Cats said...

We think that's about as close as your mom is gonna let you get to him...too bad...

Hot Rocks said...

I have never seen an opossum before! We don't have those guys here.I am sure that Angel an Isabella would have a lot of fun with him!

We don't get opossums at our house. But we do get the random raccoon every once in awhile =)

That's cool that you had a visitor. We have opossums here too and they like to eat all kinds of stuffs. Is that one of the little babies?......HEY! Is that a jelly bean??

SANDY said...

Those are such creepy creatures. They are one's to stay away from for sure. They are rats, just bigger ickier ones. They do lots of damage to your yard, your lawn furniture, they carry lots of disease....go away and don't come back.

Fabulous picture though. How in the world did you manage to get the picture so quickly through the glass?

Oh my, I've never seen an opossum before! They look kind of like big rats. Ewwww! Good thing you had your headlights on Angel so you could see it. I'm curious, what would you have done if your Mommy would have let it in?!

memoriesforlifescrapbooks said...

Yuk...opossums are scary/yucky creatures...but at least they don't have a smell!

Nancy said...

Thank goodness for those headlights :)

The Kool~Kittie~Krew said...

WOW!!! Your highbeam lasers work GRRR-8! He sure is a B~I~G opposum. They're actually kinda cute! Wishing you all LOTS of peace today and always!

opossum or rats are fine with me, roaches are more icky.

Oh! Another furry friend. That's amazing. Glad Angel caught him with her headlights :)

His name is Sticky? That is hilarious!

Rose Works Jewelry said...

Repeat visitor huh? Nice!

Beadin By The Sea said...

Great photo, and good job putting light on the subject girls, but that's about as close as you should get!

The OP Pack said...

We love your headlights, Angel. But don't let that nasty critter in - they are so NOT nice.

woos, the OP Pack

Pee Ess, why don't we have nice blings like that where we can just poke our heads through to see what is lurking in our yard?

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Opossums are not too bad - at least they don't stink like skunks do!

Meghann LittleStudio said...

HOH Man! I thought it was a giant rat for a minute...I was about to ask you where you lived to get them that size! But an opossum, well, they are rodents, but they are kinds cute....Sticky?? Hilarious!
Arwen would have been having a conniption, lol

Sniffie said...

He's very brave to come that close to you!!

Peace to you,

Sniffie and the Florida Furkids

Lin said...

Oh, I love opossums! I know most folks don't, but I find them shy and sweet. And I like their little pink noses and hands. :) My kitties like to watch the opossum out the window. The only part I don't like is that they poop on my perennials and leave it for me to clean up. Ick.

livingglassart said...

Hehe--cats are the best! Mine always let me know if there's something 'funny' going on outside, too!

A Bay Horse said...

Wow that's cool that the cats told you so you could catch a pic!

The Army of Four said...

How exciting! I thought I saw one the other night in our yard, but it was one of my kit-cat friends trying to sneak up on me!
Play bows,

Cinnamon-Girl Reeni♥ said...

Good grief! That is is cool that you have one of those visiting your yard. I bet your kitties love watching him.

Anya said...

Don't let him inside the house :(
