If you read about opossums, they are the best mamas, and they will play dead rather than fight with any other animal including their mates. We have a oposum that eats with our cat and dog; they like her actually. Not a pet, but someone from the wild they share their food with at night.

Can just picture it. Funny, yet true. I award this a Blue Ribbon in the 'Lite-ku' category! :) gw

Thank you Pandita. We sort of love our opossum, being silly animal enthusiasts.
