Camera Critters

This little guy right here managed to get himself INSIDE my laundry room. I had gone out to put a load of laundry in the dryer. The door was open, so I closed it. I heard some rumbling out there later on, so I opened the door to the laundry room and screamed. He just stood there frozen. I ran to get my camera and then shot his picture. I went outside the house to go around and open up the door from the outside to let him out. I don't know which one of us was more afraid of the other. He went out soon after the door was opened. I had been wondering what happened to the cat food. We were keeping an automatic feeder out back for some stray kittens that had come up. I had to quit using it because the food would disappear faster than I knew those kittens were eating it. Do you think that I found my culprit!?!? For those of you who do not know this is an opossum.

I run into these critters often in my neighborhood outside at night, but none's gotten inside yet. Methinks I'd scream too and grab the camera before dealing with it. I participated twice this week ... once at Happily Retired Gal and the other at Small Reflections ... both on Saturday.
Hugs and blessings,

*gross* We had one under our house trying to get in. We caught it though and let it go as far away as possible lol.

Ewwww! I hate possums and armidillos, I can't wait to move back up North where there are less large rodents.

I HATE those big rats!!! That's what my hubby has finally started shooting and leaving out for the eagles to eat!!!! We've had some problems with them since our dog went to the bridge last March, but he just now decided it was bad enough to shoot (we've had 3 so far....)

First time I ever saw one from a distance, I thought "What a weird cat" and then it flicked the bared tail... scared me to death.

Linda said...

I don't know ... he looks pretty ticked off to me and I would have screamed and run, too! I'm just not sure I would have run back with the camera!
