I love animals, I really do. But possums? They're a little hard to love for me.

*side story you don't need to read*
once when I was younger I looked after my neighbor's cat while they were on vacation. I went to feed the cat dinner and saw a furry creature at the backdoor by the cat's dish (so, safe to assume its the cat!) I was SECONDS from opening the patio door to let it in when I feel something furry brush up against my leg. IT WAS THE CAT...ALREADY INSIDE. I turn on the back porch light and see a MASSIVE EVIL POSSUM hissing back at me. Never again have I been able to love a possum... *thank you for reading my sad tale lol*


This woman finds a possum in her closet and is, understandably, not too happy about that.

She tries to gently drag it back to the backyard to let if free, but its crazy and hissing at her. She's yelling at it and trying to make it chill and leave, but its not having any of that.

Suddenly at 1:50, she has a change of heart.



Suddenly its her life duty to get these possum babies to safety.

She coaxes the possum mom out and guides her through the living room. Once the possum mom gets to safety, its a real celebration.

The human mom deems the possum her "mama from another mama"...basically they're BFFs now.

Does your mom ever go into mom-mode like this? Have you ever found yourself doing this too?!

My mom definitely does...she can hear a crying baby from a mile away and always tries to help lol!
I just hope that thing doesn't have any diseases! lol. Cute story though. Love all animals
@LeshelleHoward I always think of them as ROUS's from that movie the Princess Bride. Totally giant scary rats hahahha
I always see possums as big scary rats. But I slowly started to like them after finding how strangely cute they are. Does everyone think so or am I just weird?
I found a mouse in my driveway today, it was sick or injured, but I felt like this lady and wanted to help. I picked him up and put him in a box that I lined with old sweaters and t-shirts so that it wouldn't be in the cold rain. Also I left him some food and water, but when I checked up on him an hour later he had died. I feel so bad that I couldn't save the mouse, so I definitely feel why this lady wanted to save this possum
not my first choice of pet but hey if she's happy
