This opossum is a regular visitor to the Wild Reiki Spa (the fountain), and an occasional visitor to the Wild Rose Café which serves breakfast daily for my squirrel and bird neighbors—both are located at my home office.
As I watched Opossum’s progress through the garden, I realized that he was heading for the front porch, where I had put out nuts for the squirrels. While I hoped to be allowed a short video, I feel deeply honored that Opossum accepted my presence and that of my very insistent cat Night Sky for his entire meal.
All of the shaky moments in the video are due to my having to wrangle Night Sky, who knew that the front door was not completely latched and that he could open it if he pushed hard enough.
I have not edited this video—only pieced the segments together so that everyone watching can experience being with Opossum and get to know him a little bit better. He is a very good neighbor to have, foraging in the garden for snails and slugs, and he also helps keep the rodent population down.

A WILD WAY TO HEAL
Rose De Dan, Wild Reiki and Shamanic Healing LLC, is an animal communicator, Reiki Master Teacher, shamanic energy healer, and author. Her classes, sessions and ceremonial work are inspired by wild and domestic animals who have issued a call to action for personal and global healing.
That morning the keepers at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle had found her collapsed in her outdoor exhibit. Efforts to try to get her back on her feet failed. Her condition worsened, and the humane decision was made to euthanize her.
I was saddened when I heard the news that day, and I knew that many others would be as well, including Chai and Bamboo—her elephant companions.
But Watoto's passing brought up more than just sadness in others—it re-ignited the touchy issue of whether elephants should be kept in captivity at the Woodland Park Zoo (or in captivity at all, anywhere).
But Watoto had her own message to share.
