This little mystery is a bit different than usual, to say the least! I spent the weekend catching possums! That's right...catching possums!
The strange part is that I caught these possums at home, in my Mother's house. In her toilets, to be exact! Two on Saturday and another one on Sunday! Keep in mind, this is not in the country but in Houston! In a residential neighborhood! No opened doors...no opened windows! Just to make sure that folks knew I wasn't making this up, I snapped a couple of pictures.
The pictures above are of the possums just as I found them Saturday morning. By the way, that brown color in the water came from the critters and not from something else! Just wanted to clear that up! After catching these two, I moved them outside to the back yard! They were still very much alive!
Sunday morning Mom called me to come over to her house and look at something! Sure enough, there in her john was another small possum! This one was alone, and a little smaller than the other two!
Now, here comes the mystery! How the hell did these critters get into Mom's toilets? Did they swim up the sewer pipe? Did they come down the vent pipe? Were they left by the "possum fairy?" If anyone has any idea as to how these guys got in the house and the toilets, I'd be more than happy to find out! This is one mystery I'd like to have solved, ya know?
Coffee out on the patio this morning. Don't worry...I moved the possum!
