Our latest rescue was a baby possum. It was so tiny and some animal bit off one of its ears! My meowmy put medicine on that part to heal it and put the baby possum into a huge plastic barrel pot that she used to plant strawberries in, she then put a screen over the top and weights on top so raccoons couldn't lift it up to hurt it. We put flowering grasses on the bottom very thickly for its bed and so when it went to the bathroom, it would not sit on top so it wouldn't have to lie in it. It would sink to the bottom. We fed it wet kitty food and water and it got all better. We called the baby Blinky because it always blinked at my meowmy a lot. It was cute for a possum. When we felt it was strong enough and better, we took it to the Wild Life refuge to stay till it could be released in the wild again. It was so small my meowmy didn't want it to go back to the wild until it was larger. She said it couldn't defend itself so tiny.
We feed all the local feral colony and any possums or raccoons who are hungry. We don't want any animals to be hungry and we keep a large stainless steel bowl of water changed every day for them. In the front yard we have a large birdbath we keep full and fresh day old bread and seed in the bird feeder. We always try to help all animals and birds. My meowmy and daddy go down to the bay and feed ducks, seagulls and pigeons too. Sometimes even pelicans. If they could feed the seals they would! WE LOVE THEM ALL! OH! SAY TONS OF PRAYERS FOR MY COUSINS IN ZIMBABWE, AFRICA! AT THIS TIME, THEY NEED PRAYERS FOR SOME STUFF THEY ARE GOING THROUGH. WON'T SAY WHAT, BUT THEY ARE SUCH WONDERFUL ANIMALS (CATS 6 AND ONE PUP!) THEIR MOMMY NEEDS PRAYERS FOR STRENGTH AND FINANCES. K?

Purrs your humans sound lovely many purrs to them and you are right about the greatness of a nation. It does seem to show with how they treat their animals.
Your meowmie abd daddy are such angels to take care of the baby possum!
Our meowmie needs to get a bird bath for our front yard! She keeps a big bowl of water in the back yard for the birds and squirrels and a dish of water in the front yard by her flowers under the tree.
Meowmie fed a tortoiseshell kitty over a month ago, but mom hasn't seen her since. :-( Meowmie hopes she comes back.
Love & Purrs,
Gimli, Isis, Tabi, Kenji & K.C.
