My name is Possum! I came to Mayer Vet Hospital in 2007 in search of a home of my own. Dr. Mayer and his staff were so nice to take me in, and I have lived here ever since. I enjoy visiting with everyone who comes to the hospital, especially other cats. My hobbies include tormenting the dogs who bark at me, chasing my tail, eating, and napping. My dislikes include people who don't pet me, weight management diets, and anyone sitting in my chair.
