I'm so delighted to bring a very unusual rescue story to the CATWALK today!
Towards the end of spring last year, we had a severe windstorm that affected many areas of Victoria. This is the experience our friend, Norm, shared with us after the gales...
"I was out for a walk around 7:30am with our miniature poodles, Crystal & Pearl. They were sniffing everything as usual when a baby ringtail possum peeked out from under a bush - then tentatively approached.
Crystal leaned forward to gently sniff the arrival. That presented her ear tresses as an excellent ladder and the little possum climbed to the top of her head then onto her back. Poor Crystal was initially concerned but I settled her down and she decided her unexpected passenger was acceptable. The possum bub seemed much happier riding around than on the ground and I suspect Crystal's litters of pups predisposed her to accepting something small hanging on.
Mother Possum was nowhere to be seen. I guess the little possum fell off his transport during the night in the high winds. He appeared to be unhurt and in excellent health and was collected by a Wildlife Rescue person later in the day."Anyone got a caption they'd like to share for any of these gorgeous pics?
