When I met Mr. Possum, I thought he
needed a silly name after all he'd been through.
His master was dead after a long bed-ridden illness and the grieving widow wanted
nothing more to do with this elegant looking white cat.
Dame Edna uses the name Possum very affectionately and so did I.
As I got to know these furry characters, their names fluffed out appropriately.
Her Royal Highness Princess PeepEye
Mr. Honey Bunny Possum
I am sad to say that Mr. Possum became
very ill and now he's gone.
PeepEye stayed with me for many years after Possum left. Finally she let me know that it was her time to go.
Both are gone to join Captain Midnight, my beloved Sunshine Coast cat...
The Captain lived with me in Roberts
Creek, BC. He was a country cat.
He had a very happy life with friends until his adventure ended when he met up with a cougar.
Rest in peace, dear, dear friends.
