Possum success!

You may remember that we've had a few issues with possums living in our roof cavity. We tried giving them a possum box to move to, but they preferred to stay in the spacious, warm comfort of the roof cavity. Every morning we would go out to the extension and find possum poop everywhere. We came up with a plan about how to lock them out once the doors and windows were all in, and after a few false starts we did it!

Can you see her little ear there?
We did hear them trying to get back in for the first few nights and that made me feel totally awful but eventually we know they found their new home because we have seen two of the possums using the box. It may not be as luxurious as having a whole roof cavity to themselves but it certainly is a warm and safe home for mum and her bub!

Don't forget to pop over and put your entry in for our dear little 'houseiversary' giveaway!


  1. Aww, I'm so glad they took to the box and that you can get on with your house now x

  2. That was so sweet of you to build them a new home and though they did not appreciate it at first I think they will for many little possum years to come!

  3. Sometime mouses and other little animals make big problems for us but some people kill them that is not good. we should catch and move them to other places anyway this post is very helpful for me like superior papers review and i like the them of this page.
