Pos­sum tales

The Courier-Mail - QWeekend - - MAILBOX -

I can to­tally re­late to Mary-Rose MacColl’s col­umn “Pos­sum paws on the free­way of life” (Oct 4-5), as we have had many gen­er­a­tions of brush­tails re­sid­ing in our garage roller-doors. Nu­mer­ous meth­ods of evict­ing them have been tried and failed. Our doors are per­ma­nently stained with their urine and our garage reg­u­larly lit­tered with their nest­ing ma­te­rial. I’m now re­signed to the fact that they are our per­ma­nent ten­ants, so when I see a brand new baby pos­sum there with its mum, maybe, like Mary-Rose, I’ll just pre­tend they’re sugar glid­ers.
