Remember Spy vs Spy? I was trying to remember what her little face reminded me of, when suddenly it came to me:
If those faces are not inspired by the mug of an O'Possum, then I am a monkey's uncle.
I picked her up and she started trying to go all "roadkill" on me; laying on her side, faking rigor mortis, drooling and POOPING. While I gave her a bath, I was noticing a butt-ton of fleas on her. Poor little thing. I got her completely free of fleas and wrapped her up.
This was a few days ago. I have no idea if she came in on her own, somehow finding a way into the house, or if Spider drug her in like a trophy. I should let her go (definitely a girl), but she and I are bonding and I am worried that she will end up some creature's supper. She is enjoying her scratches and pets now and has stopped "playing possum" so much. She is so ugly, she's cute. And since she is just a wee baby, it is possible to keep her as a pet, although not recommended.
Right now she is sitting on my shoulder after eating a juicy sweet chunk of pluot.
