An intruder

For those of you who didn't already see the pic on my facebook page, here's what we came home to last night. It was sitting on our headboard in the master bedroom. Evidently we startled it, because it hid behind the nightstand, from where we were able to lure it into one of the cat carriers without too much trouble. But not before I took a photo of the opossum.

So now we have figured out what the noise was coming from our attic for the past several days. We kept sending the cats into the attic, but they would sniff around and come out, and we didn't see any definite evidence of an animal; no droppings, no odd smells, etc. But yesterday the door to the walk-in attic must have got left open and it ventured its way down to our bedroom. Yuck!

Zakir carried the opossum in the cat carrier down the road and let it loose near some woods. We still haven't figured out how it ended up in our attic, but I sure hope it's not coming back!
