You will not believe what we found in our toilet last night.

That's right. A baby possum.

I'm sure if you follow me on Twitter, or if you're friends with me on facebook you already know about this little encounter.

Last night, I was upstairs on the computer and Andrew was downstairs. I heard him let the dogs outside to potty and I heard a lot of barking. Next thing I know, Andrew is screaming my name so I run downstairs as fast as I can thinking something had happened to one of my dogs.

"What's wrong!? What happened!?"

He stood there with a white towel and this disgusted and surprised look all over his face.

"What!?!?!?"

"Come here. You want to see something gross honey!?"

"What what what!?!?"

We make our way to our driveway and I see a tail and little legs sticking out the side of the towel.

Andrew says, "So, I was about to go to the bathroom, I raised the seat, and a rat was sitting there in the water."

"A WHAAAAAAAAAAT!?"

"Is he dead? Did you kill it!? Don't kill it, just let it run away."

Andrew opens the towel, and to our surprise, a baby possum stood there...well, playing possum.

I ran upstairs to grab my camera and took a picture of the little guy.

I wanted to take him into our backyard so his Mom could find him but he ran under my car and wouldn't come out.

Now the question that everyone, including myself is asking...

HOW THE HECK DID IT GET IN OUR TOILET!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

I named him Harry Potter.

Get it? Hahahahahahaha. I'm so clever.

  1. oh my god, you handled this SO much better than I would have. I would have already packed up and moved out, and if I did stay I would be afraid that something would be there to bite me in the butt whenever I sat down.

  4. hahah.. if I picked up the toilet lid and saw that in my toilet I more than likely would have had a heart attack. It is (kinda) cute in a way, but still..
    Now I'll be pondering how it possibly got in the toilet in the first place.

  32. oh. my. goodness. I would have freaked the heck out! The thing is pretty cute.....but it would definitely be less cute peeking at you from your toilet bowl! Wow...I would have made my guy search the whole house for more furry visitors. haha. Your blog is super cute :)

  33. I hate possums with a passion but I can't help but go "awwww" at this little furball! What a cutie! Odd that he was in your toilet somehow but hopefully his mommy and him were reunited! :)

  34. oh my GOSH!!! That is crazy, but the craziest part is that I have a very similar story. When I was in Southern CA visiting my grandparents, somehow a ferret got into the house and climbed INTO MY BED at night! It was the freakiest thing ever. Got pictures and everything... and after we called animal control, they came the next morning to take it and fly it to Arizona because ferrets are not legal in California! So funny I just had to tell you that I can relate! haha

  35. OMG. Wow- I would have completely freaked out!

    ReplyDelete
