A tiny suede (its fur hadn't grown yet) Brushtail Possum was found in a bed in a nursing home. The rescuer faced two problems: the lady who slept in the bed didn't want to give the "dear little thing" up; & a cat had ripped its scalp open. WINC rescuers develop a great line in sweet talk for all situations, & in no time the little guy was bundled up & taken to the Vet. There he was glued back together before being whisked off to a carer - & hopefully on release will live happily ever after.


Update : August 2015 : Even after a very bad start, with the right kind of care, this little one is ready for release!
