Possum Report from da Urban Jungle

Minna Krebs here........reporting from our house...aka "The Urban Jungle"

Yeppers, after several days of trying to trap the MOST EVIL possum in our attic, to no momma decided to 'man-up' so to speak, and return home.    She has taken a few precautions, though....
For instance, her has been leaving ALL da outside and most inside lights on at night (thinking that possums will only want to creep around in da darkness) .  This idea does make our house look a bit like Times Square on  New Years Eve, butt it is her greenpapers paying da Electric bill, not mine.

And since da MOST EVIL possum was last heard tromping around in our attic like a 200lb drunken sailor, her has outfitted us all in doggie pith so>>>>

Stylish, huh?????

Now, some furrends have commented that they think the MOST EVIL possums is cute!!!!
This is cute??!??!?!?!?!??!

My momma gets soooooooooo flipped out by these MOST EVIL, creepy, animals from da underworld, that her could not even post this foto without getting goose-bumpies all over herself!    

We did have Uncle Tommy put a humane trap/cage out to try and lure this MOST EVIL possum from our house and relocate it far, far way (like South Carolina) .    He even bought the #3 dinner from KFC to load chicken and biscuits in da trap (sheesh)

Then we waited to see when he caught MOST EVIL.......
and we waited
and we waited
and he checked da trap everyday (cuz there was NO WAY my momma would look at MOST EVIL possum in a cage)
and we waited
and we waited

FINALLY on Tuesday........we had a creature in da cage!

It was Veranda!!!    Our neighborhood feral kitteh!!!!!!
Note.....her was not hurt in da trap/ fact her was stuffed from eating da entire #3 dinner from KFC!!
Her was not to happy though to be stuck in da cage!!!   Boy oh Boy, was her using some serious HBO Kitteh words!!!

That's when my momma decided that da MOST EVIL possum prolly left on its own .......and we could return home!  
Thank goodness, cuz we have lots to do to get ready for da BANQUET this weekend!!!!! (unfortunately we won't be bringing possum stew)

It's a good thing you can go back home. I'd keep the pith helmets though. Then you will always be ready for adventure!

OMD, we sure hope that evil possum is gone - they have very sharp teeth, don't they? Mom gets the shivers all over thinking about one of them being inside anywhere in the house. Hope he really is gone.

See you at the banquet.

My momma thinks possums are creepy-icky, too. I don't think I ever met a possum but that picture kinda made me all shivery so I don't think I would like 'em either.

I'm very much glad you gots to go home. And I bet that possum is hitch hiking his way to South Carolina as we speak!

Wiggles & Wags,

Sorry that was just my mom running screaming from the room when she saw that possum. She's got the possum phobia, too!

Your pal, Pip

Psst:she doesn't know we have one stashed in the basement as a door prize for the banquet.

Veranda probably chased it away. Or maybe with all the lights on and pith helmets, he thought he was in a Mad House.

XXXOOO Daisy, kendra & Bella
