A couple of years ago, I went home to Minnesota for Christmas. Mom and I were sitting watching TV and she looked out the big doors that lead to the deck and gasped. "What's that?!??" I looked and it was a 'possum, just meandering across the deck, right in front of the windows/door! So cute! She lives by a nature center, so it must have wandered over. I was worried, since it was in the middle of the winter. Mom was sort of creeped out, but I thought it was adorable. The next morning, we found that it had dug a hole under the deck, and was probably staying in there. I called the nature center to ask if there's anything we could do, and the guy said to just leave it, it might find it's way back, or just exist as long as it could. It was freezing cold, but we put some dry food out.
We saw it for a couple of nights and then it disappeared.
