Sally Watkinson shared photos of her dog, Kato, who had a baby possum clinging to his long corded coat.

It turns out this is not the first time this has happened to Kato.

"It happened again!!! So bizarre," Watkinson wrote on Facebook. "Today I went to Jon's house to pick to find Kato again with another baby possum, this time on his actual back. Quite astonishing. This one was annoying him a bit more as it seemed to be digging in a bit, Hugo was still ignoring it. This time the vet nurse nearly fell off her chair when we turned up."

Watkinson said the first possum is doing great and is hopeful this one will have the same future.

"Good news though that first possum is a little girl who is doing well and is now with a wildlife carer until she is well and old enough to be released. Second possum is a little boy who should also be ok."
