Now i'm not terribly fond of wildlife on our property since their natural instincts are to do stuff we see as destructive. My usual response is to relocate them so we don't tick each other off. BUT these were just babies.
After rehabbing some juvenile squirrels i knew how much work would be involved, and didn't want to do it. SOOOOOO i checked my contacts list for our local rehabber, Kathy. BUT i didn't have her info.
You've heard us mention our friend and fellow blogger Possum from Possum Lane. Hoping that she was home (she is a very busy person doing great things helping others) i called her with my "Possum Emergency". At the time i thought i only had 2 or three since i didn't take the time to really look. Sure enough Possum headed on over here.
Heading back out i grabbed some latex gloves, a towel, a small box. As i started pulling the kits out i realized that there were more than three. In fact there were 7. One by one they were disconnected from the dead mom and placed in the box and wrapped in the towel (not that they wanted to stay there). By this time Possum (the Rescuer) had arrived and off they went.
BUT i had completely forgotten to take any pictures (Beatrice was disappointed). Luckily Possum had remembered. And here they are>>>>>
