So as Tim Fraser was doing some laundry in his bathroom last Friday night, he became a wee bit disturbed when his toilet started spontaneously gurgling.
"I could see bubbles coming up and I thought ‘what the the hell is happening?’" he said, recalling that evening.
Then he caught sight of a grey, furry head with a pair of pointy ears and saucepan eyes emerging on this side of the s-bend.
Moments later there was a half-drowned possum sitting in his Fowler toilet bowl.
"It was like the toilet had given birth," he said.
I'll bet it was. And he has a video.
