If any possum could be called handsome, this one is; sleek in his grey-tipped coat. He was there again last night, gleaning whatever possums find to eat under the bird feeder nearest the window, unstartled by noises or the sudden barrage of yard-light. And the most entertaining part: the effect on indoor-viewers Clancy, Amelia and Moe. Oversized night-time mouse – hot damn! And he’s not running away! Hotter damn! This was cat TV at its highest Nielsen rating. Fun, fun, fun at Lynn’s house.
