10:23PM I'd put a piece of homemade apple pie on the window sill and then went about my business. Butch hadn't been arriving until the wee hours of the morning. But evidentally Butch smelled pie and he arrived early.
Other options for food are a tangerine, shredded carrots and apple peels. Pie wins.
Note Butch's inciser.
In the meantime, here is a crop of Butch the opposum's toes. They appear almost as if they have scales.
The claws are curved and as opossums don't do much in the way of heavy digging as in burrow excavation, I am positing that they evolved at least in part for tree climbing and traction.
I wonder what tomorrow may bring.
