Grandma Thinks She’s Been Taking Care Of Three Kittens Until Her Grandson Notices One Of Them Is Not A Kitten At All


When Eric Hertlein went to visit his grandma at her Kansas home not long ago, he knew to expect several stray cats on her front porch, where she would always let them hang out. This time, however, one of these kitties was not like the others. Upon closer inspection, in fact, it wasn’t a cat at all.

Without even knowing, Eric’s grandma had been caring for a small opossum the entire time. “She reassured me it was one of her cats,” he told The Dodo. “I told her it wasn’t what she thought it was.” The sweet woman even named him Tete, and though she was shocked to realize the truth, she didn’t mind too much at all. “Well, he hasn’t bothered me yet, so I’m OK with him being here!” she reportedly exclaimed.

Eric also found out that Tete had been sleeping outside his grandmother’s door since he was just a baby, meaning he could have been orphaned. Regardless of what circumstances led Tete to the warm and cozy cat bed he now occupies, it seems to be a beneficial relationship for all involved. Scroll down to see it for yourself!

A Kansas woman known to let stray cats sleep on her porch was recently visited by her grandson, who noticed something unusual

One of her furry friends, whom she called Tete, was decidedly unlike the other cats

In fact, Tete wasn’t a cat at all… He was an opossum, and the grandma had no idea!

“She reassured me it was one of her cats… I laughed for a good five minutes,” Eric said

“She didn’t realize what I was laughing about until I started pointing out the pointy nose and skinny tail. She didn’t realize he wasn’t a cat”
