Tim is a wild brush-tailed possum. As far as I know he hasn't been rescued from anything, he just knows where to find a good meal. Every evening after sunset Timmy bangs on the back door of the sanctuary homestead and, once the door is opened, he scampers into the kitchen to tuck into his dinner. He is totally uninterested in the family sitting round the fire chatting and quite comfortable with my approach to take his photo. Nobody has taught him that it is rude to eat and run so as soon as he has cleared his plate he is off again, heading for the back door, with his beautiful tail floating out behind him; there he sits and waits until the door is opened for him. He then he disappears into the night. Tim's visit was a special treat for me as although I put fruit out for the possum that lives in our woodshed, I have never yet made his/her acquaintance. Must go now till next time.
