Spot and Jack the Opossum

Uploaded: September 10, 2014 | Entered: September 10, 2014 09:30:01


Oddly my cats do not seem to mind Jack the Opossum being around and sharing their food. Spot generally runs her soup kitchen from the garage but in the evening she will come and visit on the back porch. Jack seems to visit both places as well. So far Jeep and Houston seem to ignore the opossum do not know about Rouser yet. Wish the humans on this planet could be as tolerant.
