My kids found a baby opossum fighting for his life in the pool yesterday. We took it out and it was shivering and looked like it was going to die. The kids felt so bad for it and asked if we could take care of it. I didn't know what to do. I couldn't just leave it there to die.. So we all put gloves on and got a heating pad and baby blankets then wrapped it up. I called the Opossum Society and left a message. Then called the vet. He told me once it gets warm try to feed it baby formula every 4 hours. The opossum is now doing good and we are taking it to the local shelter.
