Baby Possum Clings to New Feline Friend

A baby possum was discovered clinging to the side of pet cat in an adorable display of interspecies cuddling, as seen in video posted on September 21.

Leigh Smith filmed the pair that day and sent the footage to his brother, who published it on Twitter. The brother, Rohan, said, “My brother’s cat had a baby possum stuck on it this morning in a display of adorable interspecies cuddling that I think we can all agree is much needed right now.”

Additional video provided to Storyful shows the baby possum being fed while wrapped in a blanket. Leigh told Storyful the possum was “happy and healthy” and went to a wildlife rescue shelter. Credit: Leigh Smith via Storyful
