possum. What do I do now?

If you'll kindly direct your gaze here
if you like 'em big) you'll see the critter who sometimes comes by for a late-night snack. I don't mind the possum so much because it's not really bothering me. The bigger issue is my upstairs neighbors, who insist on leaving their cat's food and water bowls outside the kitchen door of my apartment instead of outside theirs. They're not difficult to get along with, but for whatever reason they don't make their mostly outdoor cat work very hard for his food. And thus the visitor.
I've printed out a copy of that picture and left it by the food and water bowls as a passive-aggressive first step (which made perfect sense to me at 3:30 this morning, as did opening my door and taking pictures of a wild animal about a foot away from me). If the bowls don't suddenly move upstairs, what should I do next? Should I just handle the possum problem myself and call the game warden or something?
