My friend rescued a Possum baby!

This is little Peanut ... my friend found a dead Possum that had been hit by a car out in Brampton, Ontario.

She heard a little "sneeze" in the animals pouch (apparently this is how babies call for their Mommy), opened it, and found a baby Possum.

My friend named him "Peanut".

Peanut is doing very well and has learned how to swim. Just like a little kitten, Peanut gives kisses by licking your hand - almost as if to say "thank you".

I'd love to know how Peanut is doing, so if you read this, please let us know in the comments how he is doing. Thanks!
