Animals are one of my newest self-prescribed challenges. Cats are my strong suit because I live with one and spend a lot of time observing him. However, there is a big wild world out there full of critters leading their critter lives. This opossum mom is carrying her babies around until they get big enough to fend for themselves and it seems like the sweetest thing. For an animal that gets so much hate, she sure is doing her best to care for her young.

This piece has inspired me to work on a collection of baby animals and parents, with the intention to publish a picture book for babies.
