Today, a man turned up at our door with a baby possum in his beanie.
He walks past our house regularly and had seen my other half's animal
ranger van parked out front, and our cats and dogs playing in our yard
and figured it was the right place to take a baby possum with no mummy.
We took her (a 14 week old girl, apparently) around to our local wildlife
carer's home and met two of her current residents, a pair of wallabies. :)
I was chatting to the her and telling her that being a wildelife carer is
one of my dreams. She told me that to be a carer, you need a registered
mentor, and that she was in the position to be my mentor, if I liked,
then gave me her card and told me to give her a call. I am so excited.
