I sense you softening, Haines. Stand firm! Just because they're cute...
(Actually, as you will have guessed, this is entirely bluster on my part. I ended up "compromising" with the family of ringtails that took up residence in our neighbours. If I left out old carrots and bruised apple bits between their nest and my garden, they'd get distracted, and wouldn't make it to the beautiful tomatoes in my garden. So in essence, I was feeding the possums. But in fact, I couldn't bring myself to poison the little beasties (though I wouldn't have thought twice about a family of squirrels in the attic. go figure.))
