Late breaking news......
I just found the baby possum. OR his brother/sister.
In the pantry. While I was fetching something....
It HAS to be a different one. There is a door between the main house
and that area of the house that stays shut. In fact we lock it at night
and when we leave and only go thru it when we head to the pantry or the
laundry room. Generally we are in either room for a second or two but we close the door behind us.... we keep it closed off...
That area of the house has a mud room (hall) that comes in off the
garage...with a walk in pantry to the left and a laundry room / full
bath room to the right.
I am betting...it's a different one.
Or the same one who found his way into that part of the house by going
out of the house and finding his or her way into it again....
Haven't caught him/her yet. Dinner takes priority.
This should be a very interesting weekend.
