Eric Hertlein expected to see some stray cats when he went to visit his grandma in Kansas. The cats usually hang around in her front porch; however, there’s something off this time. One of the kitties looked weird. And when he took a closer look, it wasn’t a cat at all. The thing was a an opossum.
That means, this entire time, Eric’s grandma had been caring for a opossum unknowingly. “She reassured me it was one of her cats,” he said. “I told her it wasn’t what she thought it was.” The lucky opossum was even named Tete. Although she was a bit shocked about Tete, she didn’t really mind at all. “Well, he hasn’t bothered me yet, so I’m OK with him being here!,” she said with a big smile.
Eric also found out that Tete had been sleeping outside his grandmother’s door since he was just a baby. The poor thing could have been orphaned. The lady’s cozy home must have attracted Tete, and it was really kind of her to let him stay. Tete is one happy opossum!
