A possom it definitewly wasnt! And it wasnt a fox.foxes dont have raised rumps and thich stout legs.
It looks like a smallsized cross between a bear (the raised rump and thich legs) anteater (the flat, but busy tail) a pug(flat face) and a racoon
Anyway its reaction was calm. It saw me, I caught his attention. He ignored the cat, and stared at me, proably cuz im alot bigger than the cat. He
didnt look hostile, he wasnt stiff or scared looking, just studying me. He then lumbered off into the bushes.
Im still looking on the net. He didnt look unnatural, he was just strange, like he didnt belong.
Val brought up the sloth. I think we have sloths here, tho they are bigger, but maybe this was a baby, ill check out a sloth site!
I dont think he was native to the northwest tho. None of our normal critters. (racoons, possums, squrriels, otters, wolves, bears, cougers, coyotes,
eagles, hawks, rabbits, are all native forest and air animals here).
