and Missy are adorable orphan opossums that had been dropped
off at a local veterinary clinic when they were tiny babies. After
just a couple of weeks of bottle feeding, the two juveniles were
munching on solid food, which included everything offered.
Mister and Missy soon grew too big for their cage inside of the house
so we moved them into a triple decker ferret cage on the carport. They
love to climb and eat their food with much enthusiasm. Special treats
for hedgehogs, Sugar Gliders and Opossums are offered many times a
day. The two marsupials will beg for their Snack Time Treats which are
made with chicken livers. They also love grapes and smack their lips
The possums enjoy a stroll around the yard on leashes. They were
surprisingly easy to leash break. Unless they can be rehabilitated,
they will spend probably the next ten years in captivity, being
spoiled and loved. Mister and Missy sleep a lot during the day, though
they always wake up as soon as they smell their adoptive parents
standing in front of the cage. They sleep on their backs with their
legs sprawled out. They are happy possums who have it made!
