In other news today, a tree falls.

I think that possum just had a bath. Which leads to the question, who the hell has a pet possum?

There is nothing cute about an opossum. It looks like the offspring of a nutria, a mole, and a rat.

I was just thinking - it doesn't look very happy at all about the whole "petting" business.

Maybe because it appears to be cared for by a vampire.

There's a difference between 'docile' and 'scared shiatless'

Clearly this thing doesn't want to be touched and is probably thinking something along the lines of "please crazy lady just let me go"
 
2012-08-18 12:06:20 PM
Yeah I am not sure if cute is a word I would describe a giant marsupial rat. Those things are evil in the wild. I have had my fair share of run ins with them and I know them things are mean and dirty and destructive.

Perhaps the most misunderstood creature, very gentle and docile by nature. They only act mean in their defense mode, given the chance, they will flee. Excellent at killing mice, snakes, and other pest. They are good for the environment and should not be feared and do not carry rabies.

I'm sure the writer's ignorance about the way rabies is carried makes the rest of their claim true.

They could say that opposums are highly unlikely to have rabies, which is true, as they are very resistant, but it's not impossible for them to contract it.

Resistance, nothing. Small mammals are very unlikely to have rabies. To contract rabies, you have to a) be bitten by a rabid animal, b) survive the bite. Cats, rats, bats, and other small mammals are generally pretty unlikely to catch rabies simply because the rabid animal will just tear them apart.

So far only two people in this thread seem to understand that you spell opposum with two o's.

Have you ever been to a city? I know the noise and crowds must terrify you, but possums thrive in cities, much like every other animal that can eat garbage. Seriously, they're nearly as plentiful as squirrels, you just never see them because they're nocturnal.

That's simply not true. 1 in 800 opossums are carriers of rabies. They're not immune, but they're very unlikely to carry it, and far less likely to communicate it to humans.

Yeah, lived in a couple of large cities, possums are right up there with those vicious squirrels in scaryness factor.

2) That possum likes his mommy
3) Based solely on hand appearance, his mommy appears to be the Bride of Satan
4) Possums are the appropriate pets for the Bride of Satan

Wasn't scared until the lady's woman's hand came into the frame and then I shuddered at how monstrous it was. The hand, not the opossum.

pudding7: Which leads to the question, who the hell has a pet possum?


A girl I used to date in Florida. She found it as a baby and it had a lame leg. She fed it and took care of it awhile, it was a cute little thing. Then for whatever reason, she got tired of it. She told me she was going to return the opossum to the wild, I said don't, it's accustomed to humans now. Let's turn it in at the wild life preserve. She did it anyway, next day she found it squashed in the road on it's way back to her house.
I took it as an omen..no, I didn't get squashed, but I ended up disposed of as well.
Which was ok, cause I had a replacement lined up.

I was going to contradict you regarding bats, but fortunately I read the CDC page first. Bats seem to be in the same boat as humans - they may get rabies, but it's not common. Not worth taking the risk by handling a bat without gloves, but then again it's not worth worrying about being bitten by a rabid bat.

I like bats. They get a bad rap.

Made up one similar to this years ago when a couple friends worked at a detail shop; stuck it up on telephone poles outside garage.... had the ending say, "Contact TOM inside detail garage."

The one friend that was in on the gag said some lady came in all pissy asking for Tom, then starting calling him a "Damned dumbass" and telling him that's not a kitten, it's a possum... that it is illegal to keep and she's going to call the Dept. of Natural Resources on him if he didn't let it go, or hand it over to her, he'd better do it fast, she's not messing around, and just royally chewing his ass out.... naturally, he had no idea wth she was talking about, and buddy said she wouldn't stop biatching at him long enough for him make her understand.
When she finally let him talk and he said he had not idea what she was talking about and had no kitten or possum to get rid of and someone must be pulling a prank, she started cussing them both then walked out...

You can see his wheels turning.

Even though we all know what he is up to he will scare the bajjebers out of us when he comes back to life. They seem to put out some sort of vibe that will make every goosebump and hair on your head jump to attention so fast it will carry you a considerable distance up in the air.

And then there is the hang time.

We've had possums living under our house, on and off, for about 10 years. My husband considered the last one a pet--it would eat carrots from his hand. Me, I think he's nuts for encouraging ROUSes anywhere near our house.

There's a very simple solution. It involves a series of gas lines, valves and timed ignitions.

You may want to review your insurance first.

I always heard it as "grinning like a possum eating catshiat". Must be a Missouri thing.
