MONDAY POSSUM UPDATE
It's Monday and the week is shaping up to be a busy one. Pat was a no-show again Sunday night, making Thursday evening the last sighting. The Norwegian Forest Cat did not show up either over the weekend.
We were hopeful Pat would meander through Sunday evening and we put out some extra carrot sticks. I checked bright and early Monday morning but the carrot sticks were untouched. No Pat or maybe Pat doesn't like carrots - who knows. I know possums like avocados but with the current price that's one offering I'm not adding to the menu. We always have plenty of fresh fruit in our house so Pat will have to be content with whatever is available. There are some overripe strawberries in the fridge. Since strawberries seem to be a favorite, Artie or I will put them out either tonight or tomorrow night and see what happens.
Artie is of the opinion that Pat is living in one of the neighboring backyards - a distinct possibility. I'm of the opinion we are on the possum path for culinary possibilities with Pat living elsewhere and coming through our yard on some sort of possum schedule I haven't figured out yet.
Annie just came stalking into the kitchen wanting to go out. She does that when she hears something. I let her out but the yard is empty and the carrot sticks are posed forlornly in their plastic plate. We will keep checking this week for Pat's appearance - the watch is still on!
