Name my 'pet' possum


This little fella -- er, gal -- comes to visit every night at my house, just to eat my dog's leftovers. He/she graciously poses for photos every so often. So since I feed him/her and take pictures of him/her, he/she's like a real pet.

Except he/she doesn't have a name. Clearly, I'm seeking something androgynous.

Not Pat.

Not particularly original, but would "Pogo" do? After all, Walt Kelly's Pogo was an opossum. I'll admit that the pronoun 'he' is usually used in conjunction with the name, but it looks fairly androgynous to me!

They like cat food too. We started out with a couple now we have several families of them and they are competing with the cats for the food.
How bout just 'Possum.

Well - Rascall is a good name...could be either a girl or a boy, and the namesake of book fame was a wild critter, though a raccoon.
(Not very original either, sorry)

Sorry...can't help you with a name for your pet 'possum. (This from someone who has a pet named "Cat".)

Will you let us know when you've decided what to call "it"?
