9 BABY OPOSSUMS WERE LEFT IN MY PATIO WHEN THEY WERE WEANED, BUT STILL VERY TINY BABIES. I ended up taking 2 cold & shivering ones to Project Wildlife, 4 died (maybe from rain & cold?) and 3 were left to make it on their own. They were unafraid of me in the beginning and would look up at me with big shoe-button eyes as they munched cat chow. The babies had no concept of fear or protection & would come out way before sunset and be out in the morning for hours after sunrise, but as time went by, they would scurry away from me and I saw them less & less. The 3 remaining ones left and I wish them well with their little opossum lives. Baby opossums are delightful!
