His grandmother had told him she had been fostering three stray kittens. He went to visit and found one wasn’t a kitten at all?
Eric Hertlein went to visit his grandma, taking a trip to her home in Kansas. She had told her grandson she had been caring for three stray kittens, Eric had to tell her the truth.
The truth being one of her kittens wasn’t a kitten at all, it was actually a small opossum! The loving woman had even given her would-be kitten a name, Tete, she was more than a little surprised to learn the truth.
But then she grinned and said.
‘Well, he hasn’t bothered me yet, so I’m OK with him being here!‘
It seemed likely that somehow Tete had become an orphan, and had taken to sleeping outside Eric’s grandma’s door ever since he was a baby. Being the kind woman that she was she had taken him in, thinking him a stray kitten. As Tete was not causing any problems, it was decided he could stay.
