Just when you may have thought that you had heard everything possible, you haven’t heard about my blue-blooded-raised-in-society friend who rescues

possums.

Yep, that’s right. Those same creatures that most Southerners regard as Number One road kill, the ones that daily decorate Southern roadsides have an advocate in my friend, Stevie.

“They’re so sweet,” she said with a soft sigh.

Stevie and her family love animals. Their home and its surrounding acreage is a menagerie with a collection of dogs — Bassett hounds have always been the family favorite — cats, rabbits, horses, birds and the occasional mother raccoon who takes up in their barn. Her pantry is filled with enormous jars of peanut butter because she discovered how much hummingbirds love it. Her daily morning routine includes filling the bird feeders while coffee is making.
