I have possums.
In my walls.
Really real live possums? The only time I've ever seen them is when they were splatted.

Yeah. Possums, mind you, not opossums. The buggers are everywhere.

Ringtails I don't mind. They're small and cute and don't make much noise or mess.
Brushies are a different matter.

At least they improve the "R-rating" of your insulation. A possum is at least a localized R-15, if not more!

We used to have squirrels in the walls and raccoons on the roof in my parents' house--which was still better than the bats in the attic at my grandfather's!

Have something to pop them with should they break out of the walls?

I have a frying pan. That should work.

I think Jen meant something to use *before* they're dead. ;)

Ted, I think Pixy is fixin' to use the pan as the possumwhacker.
"Possumwhacker." Sounds like something out of the Old West.

Just curious, what's the difference between possum and opossum, aside from the extra "o" on the second?
Hope you had a Merry Christmas!!
Happy New Year!!

Opossums are cute and cuddly and live in America, apparently in barrels.
Possums are evil venomous alien parasites, and live in my roof.

Have you tried singing "Come With Me Now to the Wildwood"? That ought to draw the possums out.
