Rusty the Brer Opossum is a rad little possum. He's so smart! He's blind so he clicks to find his way around. And he's so cute. He's got many photos on the Opossums page, and is mentioned numerous times on LJ; here, here, and here. If you let him smell your shoes or give him cat food he will let you pet him. He's also kind of ticklish on his sides and hates the sound of shoes rubbing against the big mats in the pool area of The Arbors.

I love Rusty!

2005-08-17 11:57:14   Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. Funny Wombat. :) —SummerSong

2005-08-18 07:46:57   He licked my feet once. It creeped me out because he has 50 teeth and I'm not used to possums wanting to lick my feet at 2am when I can't see them. But he's nice. —BlancheNonken

2005-08-18 12:46:17   Rusty is in fact a boy! We found out last night. —MichelleAccurso

2005-08-18 12:55:52   How exactly did you "find out" last night? hehehe. Do ya'll remember a song called Possum Kingdom by the Toadies? Every time I look at this page I think of it... —SummerSong

2005-08-18 13:40:15   He lifted his leg and peed on TarZxfMichelleAccurso

2005-08-18 13:42:05   Haha! Oops. Was that before or after being picked up? :0) —SummerSong

2005-08-18 14:04:57   There was no peeing on anything by anything. —TarZxf

2005-08-18 14:55:17   That you know of... —SummerSong

2005-08-18 22:09:49   The clicking sound is made by all opossums. Males click when searching for mates and when feeling defensive or aggressive. Females click to communicate with their young. This has been your awesome opossum fact of the day! —CherylChooljian

2005-08-18 23:18:56   He's definitely not aggressive or feeling defensive, maybe he his looking for a mate... he seems to click and turn to face someone, that's where we guessed the "echo location" theory —MichelleAccurso
