OMG!!! I was looking out the front door a little bit ago and here was this mangy-looking rodent wobbling on the sidewalk. I ran and got my digital camera, but I was too scared to get out the door too much to get a picture!! difficult child came home on his bike and I took him out to see it, but it had crawled into the shrubs by then so he couldn't see it good. I thought it was a rat.....arggggggg, but now I think it's a baby o'possum. It's tail is twice as long as the body...the body is about 4 inches long, grey fur, and I think it's sick by the way it's wobbling and there are a dozen black flies crawling on it. OMG...it's creeped me out. I'm most afraid of snakes and mice....and this is just tooooooooo close. Does anyone know of a way I can tell if it's a rat or an o'possum? I would hate either, but I'd feel better if I thought it was a baby o'possum and it just lost its way.
