Yes, Gizmo is an opossum. He and his sister, Aubrey, were babies found with their siblings and abandoned by their mom -possibly another animal scared her?
We rescued them (my friend did) and my two were the only ones who lived.
They both crossed over the Rainbow bridge and I miss them both terribly.
I'll try to post more pictures!
When I have a chance I will put a page up for Aubrey too!
Thank you for asking.
If you have more questions about them I will try to answer as best I can.
They are legal in some states but not in most.
They are hard to take care of in terms of diet and medically you need to find a vet who knows them. Other than that, having ferrets is a good thing before an opossum as you learn alot about how they can get into things etc...
I've had alot of ferrets in the past too.
I would not advise having an opossum as a pet (well, they own you actually!) unless you are in a legal state and they are a rescue that needs a forever home as they are non releasable.
One vet bill can drain you!
But I am totally addicted to Opossums and try to support their cause as much as I can. They are really gentle, sweet animals and are very intelligent. They do so much good for our environment too.
Thanks again!
