Let's meet some of my childhood companions, shall we?
'Possums. We had them. Not on purpose, but the oversized rats seem insanely attracted to cat food, much like the aliens in District 9. They're about as cute, too, but much less sympathetic. My mom was feeding the barn cats one evening, and either the power was out or she hadn't bothered to turn the light on. In any case, she was in the mostly-dark barn, and when one of the cats wound its way around her ankles, she bent down to pet it--and came face-to-face with a 'possum who just wanted some lovin'.
|Wanted: Cat food and some sweet, sweet love for "attractive" single monster.|
Sunny is way cuter.
