Today's blog post will focus on how great opossums are at ridding the world of ticks and therefore tick-borne diseases!
I can't believe that it's been three years since I've posted a blog update! Many opossums and other little babies have been cared for, raised and released in that time. My life has changed quite a bit in that time as well! All great things. I've changed careers, although I will always continue to care for wildlife and work with animals, I can guarantee that! My new career opens up so many more opportunities to help the wildlife I love though.
Currently, I am unable to take care of the very small pinkies like I used to, cause I'm not home as often, but hear this. I'm a flight attendant now! This new career will allow me to travel to all sorts of different places to help wildlife and other organizations all throughout the world. I am super excited for that opportunity.
I miss having all of the little baby opossums like I used to, but once I get everything settled I should be able to continue their care. The days I am flying I can transfer the babies to someone I've trained to tube feed, which in turn is better for the opossums because more trained hands means more babies saved!
Right now I have two adults in my care and two little babies. One of the adults is a hit by car male, but he is doing great and showing zero signs of internal damage. The other adult is a female I raised from a baby, she's blind in one eye but her release looks promising and should be soon. The babies are just barely getting fluffy and now eating solid foods!
