This huge, listed, 200 year-old eucalyptus tree stands DIRECTLY outside my bedroom window, and apart from attracting thousands of birds, also provides temporary homes to possums fairly often.
However, last night, I was treated to a war between this possum, a male cat, and possibly a few other culprits, that went on – and on.
The possum seems to have won, and I caught sight of it (and its big, bushy tail) scampering up the tree shortly before dawn, leaving the cat growling uselessly at the bottom!
Now, though, I’m very tired. Of course, the POSSUM now gets to spend the whole day doing this!
