Mr. Protection and Mr. Reciprocity

Mr. Protection and Mr. Reciprocity

Two of Benjamin Harrison’s more unusual pets during his term in the White House.

Did you know: Opossums are North America’s only marsupial. They are naturally immune to rabies and the bites of pit vipers. They have opposable thumbs...on their hind feet, so perhaps that makes them opposable toes. 

Not sure they make good pets for presidents or regular folk. 

This drawing is not one of my better efforts compositionally speaking, but I like the opossum concept. They are a nice combination of cat, giant rat, and raccoon qualities. 

Maybe nice is not the right adjective.

(Trump has remained petless so far. Perhaps he needs some appropriately named opossums?)
