Pickering - Mackay residence
by Natalie Mackay
(Pickering, Ontario, Canada)
Just sitting on the back lawn this morning. Our house is on the marsh of the West shore of Frenchman's Bay, east of Toronto.
I guess I had been sitting very quietly for some time as the Possum appeared, he or she descended the small hill from neighbours and walked across the lawn in front of me to the grasses skirting the marsh a hundred feet away.
The cat followed up for several feet, sniffed, and was no longer interested.
First sighting for me, and it was a big one!
