a little sad today

Friday, June 29, 2012

today is kind of a sad day. Last week we adopted a baby possum. A guy in our town found several at the river park in town. the mother had been killed. the guys dog, was vary motherly and licked 2 of the 3 to death. the third was not fairing so good. the guy did not know how to take care of it properly. He was only feeding it cat food, and it was not eating much of it. We took it in and tried to ge it better. my girls named it fluffy. we got it to eat grapes and formula and that is about it. It was still not doing all that great. Last night it died.

I was starting to get attached to the little guy/girl. It would never have be able to be released in to the wild since it was dependent on us for its food. It would have had to live with us for the rest of its life.

    I've had that experience with a few wildlings over the years. You do what you can. Sometimes they make it, sometimes not. emoticon
