Caught the big male on Friday night.. I took him up to the pest man's house on Saturday early and he told me that the other one was a female. And that she would have had a joey just old enough to be off her back.
Over the weekend I've been thinking about whether it would have survived, and was wondering what had happened to it because I hadn't heard anything in the ceiling. No noises, that is, until early this morning when there was a thump on the roof... When I went out with my torch to investigate I discovered who is still at large. Yep. The joey. About the size of a big kitten. The torch light must have made it think it was morning because as soon as I went back to bed I heard it climbing up inside the wall and settle down to sleep in the narrow ceiling space above me.
Time to bait the trap again.
