We had a hot day here today and possums especially don’t like hot days. See him airing his tail? The only other time I saw him doing that I was panic stricken! “The poor possum”, I thought. “The poor trapped possum”, I pondered. “The poor, dead possum”.
I was sure it was the end for the possum and ran next door and banged on the door. “The poor possum….”. But it seems he is the resident possum, third generation, and it is well known that he doesn’t like the heat of a Sydney spring day.

I am pleased to report that the possum was soon a very happy possum and was able to return to the safety of his home due to the onset of a storm.
