    When Pat Lavergne arrived Monday to empty the possum trap on Kansas Avenue in Port Acres, at first she didn't know what she was looking at.

    "First I thought it was a rabbit or a cat," the senior Port Arthur animal control officer said. "As I got closer, I saw it was a possum and I was shocked."

    The young possum - stark white except for pitch black ears - is an incredibly rare find, said animal control supervisor Anthony Mitchell

    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    I usually think possums are yuky, but this one is kinda cute. I hate that any of them are euthanized.

    I LOVE that groundhog in your avatar maureen. He/she is beautiful.
