Poss, if the Moyles affectionately call her, had jumped on Molly’s back, and she remained close to her new caregiver.

“They are inextricably linked, because,” Elle Moyle tells 9News Melbourne. “I think that possum is thought Mol was her mother, and vice versa.”

And while most may not see possums as pests, the Moyles say that they have no intention of shooing from the misunderstood marsupial.

Says Sara Moyle, “It is definitely uplifted her mood, they both needed each other, I think, so it was a fantastic relationship.”
