Well now I have a two-three month old O’possum, the current question is what in hell am I going to do with it.
I saw it out in the new rose bed an hour or so before I went back and found it still in the same place, so it wasn’t just “playing possum.” I picked it up and took it inside, placed in my “cat carrier” along with some water and a little canned cat food. It (he/she?) is in the spare bedroom with the lights out and the door closed (so my cat doesn’t worry it).
Poor critter is pretty skinny with a very thin coat…either sick or just malnourished (it is very dry out there). I may just keep it for a day or two if it will eat something and then release it. If it doesn’t eat tonight then I guess I need to seek professional help for it. Now I just need to figure out where one takes a sick juvenile possum for treatment/placement in pinellas county, if any such place exists.
