“It seemed resigned, shy and a bit scared (They are nocturnal animals and there was bright morning light streaming through the office window),” Blakeman recalled. “It didn’t attempt to move away even when I was really quite close to it. It just looked at me like ‘halp please.'”

According to Austalia Zoo, the common brushtail possum is the most widely distributed large possum species. They usually live in woodlands and open forests in the hollow limbs of trees. However, they also make their homes in roofs of houses and sheds in suburban areas.

 

“It decided to make its own way out of the office through the same hole in the ceiling that it presumably fell through”

Blakeman also wanted to use the popularity of her thread to remind us that over a billion native animals have been killed by the recent bushfires in Australia. “Please consider donating to one of the many non-profit wildlife rescue organizations e.g. Wildlife Victoria,” she urged.

 

People immediately fell in love with the little critter

And the little guy went so viral, he became a meme
