Woman gives elderly possum a place to stay in her garage


Possums aren’t the first thing that comes to mind when you think of cute creatures. Possums, on the other hand, have their own appeal and can occasionally win over people and their houses.

In a Reddit post, one man described how a wild possum became his aunt’s unexpected housemate.

“Hank lives in my aunt’s garage.” He’s extremely old and has difficulty walking, so she built up a warm area for him to relax and gives him lots of snacks.”

While many people have tried to keep possums out of their garages, this aunt has made Hank feel right at home. She has a large garage, and the possum has his own off-the-way area. Because it is not attached to the house, she may leave the door open, allowing Hank to come and go as he pleases.

This connection has been going on since Hank arrived a few years ago, and he appears content to have a place to stay and consume cat food.

“He’s not tame, but he never hissed or appeared afraid,” damndirtycracker remarked. “As he’s gotten older, he stayed around longer until he just decided he was going to take up residency in the garage.”

Although Hank can be a little grumpy, he’s won over by treats: “Moderately grumpy is pretty much his default state until the treats come out, then he’s only slightly annoyed by your existence.”

Possums have short lifespans, and Hank is already a few years old, so it’s good that this possum may live a comfortable life while he’s still alive.

And he’s convinced the internet that possums can be adorable. Many Reddit users stated they unexpectedly fell in love with the cat after viewing a photo of him curled up in the garage.
