Six baby Opossums, mama got hit by a car and did not make it. People know I'm a sucker :banghead: so my daughter and I are taking care of them till I find someone with experience to take them :heart:
It's amazing how much you can learn in a hurry when tiny little lives are at stake :wideyed:

Omg! So freaking cute! I'll take half of them! Thank you for saving their lives! Is there a wildlife rehabilitation near you? I had a pet possum many years ago when I lived in ohio, she was a rescue, ate moist dog kibble and slept under the dining room table ,Matilda was her name..when she was fianally well enough, she walked off to the woods one day.:heart:

My sister once cared for a litter born in her garage. No idea what happened to their mother. She raised them til they were grown, then the wildlife folks had to relocate 'em. One seemed a bit slower than the rest so she got to keep him for almost 2 years before they found someplace he could be cared for by humans. (My sister wasn't supposed to have them in the city limits.)

I don't think hers were quite so young as yours. You and your daughter are angels for helping those sweet things. :heart:

Picked up the 2 new ones, got them to go potty. Both are in worse shape than mine, hoping to get them to take some pedialyte tonight if not the formula.

Oh my goooosh! What a precious bunch of teeny darlings! :swoon:

Possums are so cute. Thank you so much for looking after them, and finding an experienced rehabber to take them in. You saved their lives!

Aw man, they are so cute! They have such little paws and big eyes! You and your daughter did great!
Such a shame about their mum, what a cruel world❤
