How many opossum memes have you come across lately? The answer is not nearly enough! We are here to change that and give you the appropriate dose of chonky opossum humor to get your day going and your energy flowing. 

These animals are most famous for "playing possum." When threatened by dogs, foxes, or bobcats, opossums sometimes flop onto their sides and lie on the ground with their eyes closed or staring fixedly into space. They extend their tongues and generally appear to be dead. This ploy may put a predator off its guard and allow the opossum an opportunity to make its escape. These Oscar worthy actors are known for their silliness and exceptional acting skills, now let's have a laugh.

When Butter was first rescued, he was just a teeny, frail baby opossum. His mom had doubts that he would make it. She tended to his every need, feeding him healthily and steadily while monitoring his rapid growth. After a few days, it became clear that Butter would survive and only get stronger. What was not clear was that butter had no intention of being released into the wild, as opposed to Mom who initially thought that this would be the best move.

After letting him roam around outside it became painfully clear that Butter had no interest whatsoever in returning to the wild, he had grown quite comfortable in his new lifestyle and became particularly bonded to his loving rescuer/mama. He covers her face in kisses and showers her with all his affection. Watch him grow up to be the biggest snuggle bug in this awwdorable video!

Tumblr Thread: Infiltration Of The Tiniest Most Dramatic Opossum

Sometimes, very strange things happen when the animal world and humans mix together - the kind of stories that you'd think would only happen in the kind of cartoons where calking off a cliff means staying afloat for multiple seconds before falling. But no, these stories are real. 

A tiny owl being found inside of the iconic Rockefeller Christmas tree? A person accidentally forgetting that their sugar glider is in their bra and going to a doctor's appointment, praying that the sugar glider doesn't wake up? A person getting chased by a cow on Valentines day? All real. All crazy. All hilarious. 

And this time, in this ridiculous tumblr thread, our story is about a tiny opossum infiltrating a cat carrier and dramatically screeching when it got caught. Yes, sounds insane, we know. And it's so heckin' funny. 

tumblr thread about an opossum that infiltrated a cat carrier 'Font - talesfromtreatment Follow Foiled! Today I got to go on one of our runs to more rural shelters to help relieve overcrowding there. We ended up bringing back 21 kittens and 10 dogs. So fun day. But this morning, while I was getting stuff together in preparation for the 90 minute drive.. This happened.'

Meet The Mysterious "Opossum Lady" of YouTube

Georgette Spelvin remains a mystery since she operates under a pseudonym. What we do know is that this Southern California resident with Jackie Onassis' poise, has a multitude of opossums, a handful of squirrels and a killer sense of humor. Her YouTube channel has shared these kinds of surreal moments of excellence on a regular basis since 2010. But In the end, we only know what Georgette Spelvin wants us to know: that she is a very funny lady with a big heart when it comes to injured and in-need wildlife. The lesson she most often imparts in her videos is that "if you see an opossum or squirrel outside, leave it there," and if you see one that's injured or in danger, contact your nearest wildlife rescue.
