Very cute.

I think they are lovely and I couldn’t harm them but I can definitely relocate them when needed, which happened when we had them living in our roof.  I checked on him a week later, and then a month and then four months later and he was happy living in a termite nest high in eucalyptus tree.  He still lives there and it has been about three years now.

Ooooh they are so cute. I can't kill my mice (my dog used to do it for me - real cop out) so how could you possibly do damage to a possum.

I just love them Barbara, I can't do anything to them but I cut some old fronds off our old Wine Palm and that was where our resident possum lived. I don't think she liked me cleaning up her home. She (or her offspring) had been here for over 30 years, so I am sure they will be back. I actually have the Strawberry Guavas to myself this year.

I know they're the enemy, but how could you hate that? They stayed for a few days, then moved on. A few years ago, a Mum came with her bub for a few weeks, then moved on, leaving the youngster behind. He stayed for nearly a year, till he (I assume it was a he, as he got bigger than his mum) got too big for the ledge and kept falling off. I get cross when they eat the pawpaws, peaches and passionfruits, but apart from covering the peaches, never actually DO anything.
