Possum Post Update



I fuzzied up little Nervous Ned... a good grooming with the old toothbrush & he is is all fluffed up, & I am hoping...looking a little more possum like. Oh yah, gave him a bit of a wee shower with the old spray bottle & then scrubbed his back...under his arms...no soap though...he's new... so he's not to stinky yet. {do possums smell...I wouldn't know} The weee shower & scrub lightened his coat up just right... I then went back in with some white paint here... a little pink there and last but not least, gave him a wee tuffet for his little fuzzy behind. He is a custom piece for a gal who has been called possum since she was a little girl... a sweet endearment for sure.

I hope this little guy finds a warm place in her heart & home...

Adorable and yes they really smell horrible. But I am sure this one smells fresh as daisies.

Susan he turned out beautifully... I never thought I would be a Possum person but this little guy makes me want to be. :)

Hugs,

Theresa

Suzie, I love him! You have done a fabulous job of capturing a possum, not too easy to do I would think.
Like Pea said, I've always heard they smell but thankfully have never been close enough to personally know!
Hope the human "Possum" loves him!

By George, I think you've got it! Yes, there is something a bit more "opossum-y" about Nervous Ned now!

Susan, you needn't be nervous over Nervous Ned because he is just perfect!

Possum should find a great deal of enjoyment from owning this piece. I know I would!
