This is why we have trust issues.

Eventually, my search led me to this Tumblr post with over 400K notes, featuring what has to be the cutest opossum ever.

But I was blindsided. We all were.

Hoping to find the owner/picture taker of the opossum when clicking on "Source," I instead was brought to a taxidermy website.

Which kinda makes sense because why would an opossum be smiling, holding a flower, and then allow someone to get so close to capture the perfect photo?

The good news is that there are other cute, living opossums out there. Like these. Look at them and everything will be OK.
