Update 29th Nov 2016

With the exception of Toto, who I'm thinking has probably left the area, all of the possums are still around. Ruby's babies Keeta and Koji visit frequently. I don't think I have mentioned what genders these two were - it can be hard to tell when they're just a little ball of fur - but now it's clear that Keeta is female and Koji is male.

Keeta is much more assertive than her older sister Maple when approaching the humans for food.

Update 6th Nov 2016

Mischa is growing up and has been sleeping on his own for some time now. He had the misfortune to pick Box 4 during a couple of hot days recently and had a fairly uncomfortable time (see the comments section of the last entry). Since then he seems to have found some cooler place to sleep.

Mischa - 14th Oct 2016

Mischa might still be at least somewhat under Sasha's protection because about a week ago he chased Farley (who is probably his father) away and also on one occasion Sasha declined to visit the feeding area when he was present - normally she would automatically chase off any other possums, even including ringtails, from this area.
