Because Eric’s grandma lives alone, some people worried about her taking in strays. They often wondered if the animals could be dangerous. Thankfully, she only takes in cats. Cats are such gentle creatures.
Or, at least, that’s what her family thought. Cats are definitely gentle, but was her newest creature a little off? Something seemed fishy, and it didn’t seem like the usual cats she brought home.

This extended to both people and animals, and she was always willing to show her love to others. It was pretty crazy, but he went to go look at the strays she had with her. There were a lot of animal beds in the house.

This time, when Eric went to visit Grandma, she wanted to show him some of her cats. There was always a revolving door at grandma’s house with animals. So, it was time to introduce all the new ones to him.
He saw the different beds and didn’t really think much of it. There were three kittens there, and they were all pretty cute. He went on his way and didn’t notice the cats again until much later in the day.

The cats were really sweet. Sometimes they would come and snuggle with you, but most times they just minded their own business. It was a typical cat thing to do. They hadn’t developed their mean streak just yet.
Eric liked cats, but not nearly as much as his grandma. These kittens were especially cute when they were all curled up in their beds. In fact, you couldn’t even tell what they were when they got all curled up!

A New One Appears
Eric had looked at the cats earlier, but he didn’t really notice them. When he got up and saw the cats all in their beds, he saw one that looked a little bit different than the rest. The cats were finally awake.
Because of this, he was able to see their heads and what they looked like. But, this cat didn’t look like the rest. What was wrong with him? Eric wasn’t sure what was going on.

Something’s Not Right
Something was just not right. He could see that by looking at the cats. Two of them were clearly kittens and looked like every other cat he had ever seen. But, one of them didn’t look normal. Its coloring was off.
But that’s not all. The shape of the cat was also a little strange. It was a bit bigger than the other kittens, but it was all curled up in bed like nothing happened. So, was Eric just making a bigger deal out of things?

Crazy Cat Lady
His grandma was really what can be considered to be a crazy cat lady. She loved her cats! She would always have cats, and Eric remembered lots of kittens in the home from the time he was little.
It was just part of his grandma’s charm. Without all the cats running around, his grandma just wouldn’t be the same grandma that he knows and loves with all his heart. She really was terrific.

Eric’s grandma had a rule that she had to rescue all. She couldn’t bear the thought of a small animal being out in the cold without food and water. And the thought that they wouldn’t be loved was heartbreaking to her!
Animals had a special place in her heart, no matter what type. So when Eric mentioned something about the cat, grandma was ready to go to fight for the little guy. No one messes with her cats!

That’s Not a Cat
It was at that moment that Eric broke the news to his grandma. He told her that it was definitely not a cat sitting in the bed with the other kittens. Eric tried to point out all the differences.
Clearly, this cat was grey and much larger than a regular cat. Plus, it didn’t have cat whiskers or anything like that. The more he looked at the animal, the more he was sure it was not a cat at all!

Arguing With Grandma
Grandma wasn’t ready to give up on the cat. She insisted that it was actually a cat! Eric tried to tell her that it wasn’t, but grandma had some pretty good evidence that it was indeed a cat. She had even named the little guy.
Plus, he was all curled up in bed, surely that meant he was a cat! He loved to act like a cat, he looked like a cat, and she named him a cat. It had to be a cat!

Grandma argued that this little fella was named Tete. He was as cute and cuddly as can be. He was definitely a stray, but he’d been over with grandma for almost a week. He hadn’t caused any problems at all.
Tete was really sweet and nice. It almost had Eric convinced, but he was ready to do some more research to show that Tete was not actually a cat like she thought.

An Awesome Pet
Tete had been an awesome pet. In fact, grandma was hoping that she could keep him as a regular cat! Some stray cats cause a little bit of trouble. They’ll get in fights with the other cats and cause problems.
But, not Tete. Tete was really nice and cool, and Eric didn’t want to break his grandma’s heart. It was clear to him that Tete was going to have to go and get out of the house. It could be dangerous!

Still Not a Cat
Despite all what grandma said, Eric couldn’t believe that Tete was a cat. He had an idea of what the fella actually was, but he was a little scared to mention it to his grandma. Would she believe him?
She wanted to believe that it was a cat so bad, but even if you wished it, it wasn’t true. Eric was going to have to burst his grandma’s bubble. It was, unfortunately, the only thing to do in this situation.

The Tough Truth
Eric couldn’t hold it in any longer; he knew it was time to tell Nana what Tete really was. He had to think of a smooth way to tell her that this one was definitely not a cat. While it could look like one from far away, it was something else.
In fact, what grandma was hosting was the furthest thing from a house pet and so Eric wanted to make sure she got Tete out of the house as soon as possible.

That’s Not a Dog
One family in China brought home what they believed was a big mastiff puppy. However, things started to get weird as the puppy grew up. He started growing really quickly, and he was practically eating everything!
When the puppy was standing on its hind legs, the family was pretty confused. What could this animal really be? Was it really just a big dog?
Click ‘Next’ to see what it could be!
The family knew that the dog was just a bit too big for a real dog, so they took it into the vet. As things would happen, the dog was actually a bear! The family had been living with a little black bear cub for some time without knowing.
While the bear never tried anything dangerous, the family knew they weren’t the right home for it. The bear was sent to a rehab center to live out its life.

Another Hilarious One
Apparently, a lot of people in China are getting duped! This woman in china bought a Japanese Spitz puppy from a pet store. Or, so she thought. She worked hard to feed the little guy dog food, but he didn’t want any of it once he was three months old.
She thought it was a little strange, but he was so cute and fluffy that she thought it had to be the dog she had bought. There was no way the pet store sold her something else!
This is just like grandma’s stray. Click ‘Next’ to find out!
What Was It?
Well, as it would turn out, the dog was actually not one at all. It was really a fox! No one would have thought that a fox would be sold at a pet store, but apparently, the pet store didn’t know either!
The woman did the right thing. She knew that she couldn’t keep the fox, no matter how cute the little fella was! So, she gave the fox to the zoo where it would live.

A Wonderful Save
When three construction workers were driving past a frozen lake, they saw a dog fall into the water. Seeing that the dog was fighting for its life, they couldn’t leave him there! The three workers went through the icy waters to get to the dog.
As they pulled him out, it was clear that the dog was dying. They rushed it to the vet in hopes that things would get better and the dog would survive.

The construction workers drove to the vet and something seemed off. The dog wasn’t barking at all. While a lot of dogs will stay quiet, this one was a little too quiet. And, it was a little bit big for a dog.
Still, they didn’t fret on it much considering the dog was in the fight for its life. However, when they got to the vet, everything would change.

Definitely Not a Dog
They told the construction workers that it definitely was not a dog! In fact, this little guy was not so little after all. It ended up being a wild wolf! Thankfully, the wolf had been really calm the whole way over.
This was a fairly young one, which is how they mistook the wolf for the dog. However, all their buddies sure did have a good laugh about it!

Putting it Back
The vet took the same care with the wolf as it would with any other animal. They ensured that it would get the proper care! When the animal was finally warm and all healed up, the vet released the animal back into the wild.
He hadn’t been around humans for too long, so it was okay for the wolf to go back to where they found him. It was still a good deed that they did!

Cute Little Cats
When a family happened upon a group of cats that had been abandoned, they did what any smart person would do, they took them in! The cats were adorable, but they did seem to be a little bit big for kittens.
Still, they didn’t think much about it. It was only when the kittens started acting weird that they took them to the vet to get them checked out. It would change everything.

Something Much More Dangerous

A Tiger Sighting
Now, this one might be a little bit of a stretch. One woman called in a complaint in New York City saying that she had just spotted a tiger going through Central Park! This sent New York into a flurry of action and confusion.
Where was this tiger and how could it be stopped? They searched everywhere for the mysterious striped animal that was said to be a tiger.

Another Animal With Stripes
Instead, it turned out to be another animal with stripes, and one that was far less menacing. As it would be, it was just a racoon! The woman had seen the stripes and thought that it was a tiger. We aren’t sure how you could mix that up, but perhaps it was a very big racoon.
You never know! New York had practically been shut down, so they were just glad that there was no tiger on the loose after all.

Cute Little Puppies
Other people were loving that there were cute little puppies. Everyone was racing to buy these cute puppies online. When they got the teacup pups, they were surprised with just how tiny they were.

The people behind the website had a trick up their sleeve. They were doing some really fancy hairdos on the animals, and it seemed that it was working to trick all the customers. No one complained about the teacup dogs not being dogs.
Well, until one day. Someone thought that these dogs looked a little strange. As the dug deeper, they realized why things looked so strange in the end.
You can’t miss out on this, you’ll die laughing!
As it would turn out, these weren’t dogs, but ferrets! If you dress up a ferret and give them a really fancy hairdo, it really does look like a dog! This was one of the funniest scams of the century.
However, the dog owners didn’t quite get the same laugh. They couldn’t believe that they had spent so much money on a little ferret!

Letting in Her Cat
One grandma was a little too close to Tete’s caretaker. When she heard that her cat was scratching at the back door in the middle of the night, she let them in. She didn’t want her cat to be cold!
The cat came and snuggled up next to her without a care in the world. The grandma went back to sleep and didn’t think anything of it until the next morning.

A Stray Puppy
We’re about to get back to what Tete really is, but we have to tell you about one last crazy story. A family picked up a stray puppy in the middle of the road. Heartbroken that a puppy could die, the wife raced out and grabbed the puppy.
They didn’t know how bad of a condition the animal was in, so they brought it to the vet immediately. They wanted to help.
The big reveal is coming up. What was grandma really holding?
The Good Samaritan
This woman was one good Samaritan, but no one knew that the puppy would turn out to be something completely different. As they examined the little guy, the vet started to become suspicious.
This was nothing like the other dogs that he saw on a daily basis, and he knew that he had to tell the woman what was going on.

The Cat Was… an Opossum!
Eric finally gathered enough courage to tell his grandma that the stray cat was actually none other than an opossum! He knew that his news may be a bit hard to swallow, but all he cared about is getting this creature as far away from the house as possible.

Opossums’ Rare Character
Opossums are really special because they are marsupials! This is the same category as kangaroos. Opossums are a little bit rare, but people know them for one specific thing that they do.
These little creatures may look a little scary, but they are more scared of you than you should be of them! They are actually pretty sweet when they are in the presence of humans, but you don’t want to get too close to them.

A Bad Rap
These little guys often have a bad reputation. A lot of people think that they had rabies! But, here’s the thing: Possums are almost all immune to rabies! 95% of the possum population is completely immune to rabies.
They cannot catch it and they cannot spread it. Since that was a concern of Eric’s, he was happy to hear that his grandma hadn’t been put at risk. He had to google all this information!
You won’t want to miss out on the shocking ending. Click ‘Next’ to continue!
In fact, possums are great to keep around because they can help prevent Lyme’s disease. This is because ticks carry Lyme’s, and possums eat ticks. They can eat 5,000 ticks in one year! They are definitely nice to keep around.
They also eat other small bugs, so if you’ve been wanting some pest control, these possums can help. But if you ask Eric’s grandma, she’d say that Tete is happy with cat food.
Click ‘Next’ to find out why Tete was so well behaved!
Possums are marsupials that are a little bit scared of humans. This is especially true with the mothers. They are carrying babies, so they will growl or hiss if a human gets too close because they want to protect their young.
This is usually a sign you are dealing with a possum. The problem is that Tete never did this to grandma! There wasn’t any sign that he wasn’t a cat.
Click ‘Next’ to find out whether Grandma is the only one!
If you think Eric’s grandma is the only person who has had a possum as a pet, you’d be wrong! When Eric posted the story, lots of people came up and said that they too had a possum as a pet at one point.
Many of them said the possums were as friendly and kind as can be, and there wasn’t anyone who said they regretted having it as a pet.
Click ‘Next’ to get to the shocking story ending!
One interesting fact about possums is that they are the only marsupial in North America! Other marsupials contain animals like kangaroos. However, the possum is the only one that we have here.
Seeing them in the wild can be unusual because many of them are nocturnal animals, so you usually only see them at night. That’s why people often see them playing dead in the road!
Keep reading to find out how Eric and Grandma determine Tete’s fate!
Stores Babies in Pouch
What makes a possum a marsupial is that they store their babies in a pouch in their stomach until they are fully matured. In this pouch, the babies can get all the nutrition that they need.
It’s a little bit strange, but that’s what makes a marsupial what it is. If you see a possum with a large belly, they usually have lots of babies stored in their pouch. In fact, they can have up to twenty in there!

Thought of as Ugly
Lots of people think of possums as ugly, but that can’t be further from the truth. While they can look scary if you catch them at night, they can also be adorably cute when they are just hanging out in your house.
If you asked Eric’s grandma, she’d say there’s nothing further from the truth! Tete is the cutest little animal she’s ever had around, so she doesn’t think possums are ugly.
Pretend to Play Dead
Opossums are known for one specific thing. It’s how they play dead! When they get scared, the opossums will play dead and act like they are not alive. This is a defense mechanism to hopefully get other animals to leave them alone.
They are fairly good at behaving, and they would like to avoid predators if possible. These little guys really are fairly shy, so it’s a miracle that the grandma found Tete in the first place!

Grandma Found Him
Grandma found Tete on her back porch just like any other stray cat. He was a little harder to get into the house, but he warmed up to grandma pretty fast. Everyone warms up to grandmas! This little guy was no exception.
When she found him, he looked like he was starving. He sat there staring at grandma and she couldn’t help but get him some food and a good home. Since she had some extra room in her house, she brought him in.

Agrees it’s Not a Cat
It took a little bit of convincing, but grandma finally admitted that Tete wasn’t a cat. While it still looked like a cat to her, he was clearly an opossum. Grandma wasn’t sure what to do in this situation.
She’d never had something like this happen to her before, so she wasn’t sure what to do. It was clear that Tete needed a home, and she really enjoyed having him around to snuggle with and love on!

Not the First Time
It’s hilarious that this grandma won’t admit that the possum is actually a cat, but guess what? She’s not the first person to mistake a possum for a cat! This is what’s really interesting. One woman said that she regularly takes in possums!
She left a comment on the post saying that the possum had brought a date and was nothing but polite. And there’s more!

Not Friendly Cat
It seems that there were some people who had a few other experiences with possums that were less than pleasant. One person tried to rescue a cat and told many others about it. They even posted pictures!
From the looks of it, they thought the possum was a Siamese cat. While they had the coloring correct, it wasn’t a cat at all! The only question remains, was Tete a cat or not?
Click ‘Next’ to see why Grandma doesn’t want to give him up.
Refuses to Let Him Go
That was it. Grandma had decided that even though he was an opossum, Tete was allowed to stay. This, of course, made Eric very wary of the situation. Was it possible that he would be able to sleep at night?
Knowing his grandma had a wild animal in the home would be pretty hard for him to deal with. He wanted his grandma to be safe! But, she assured him that everything was going to be fine in the end.

Thankfully, Tete wasn’t going potty all over the house. It seemed that he was great at being house broken and never had any accidents. Maybe that’s another reason the grandma thought that this was a little cat.
However, what happened is really interesting. She never thought Tete was anything less than a cat, so you’ll be shocked at how long this went on for.

A Few Months
When Eric posted his post, he never thought it would get the attention that it did. His caption was, “My grandma has been taking care of a possum these last couple months thinking it was just another cat.”
The grandma took care of the possum for a few months! This wasn’t just a couple day thing. Tete lived in the house like a regular cat for months.

He Isn’t a Bother
Grandma told Eric that Tete was no bother to her at all. In fact, he’d been one of the easiest strays that she had ever brought into the home! Because of this, he would definitely stay. It was the easy thing to do.
Of course, she would need to check with the wild animal services in her area. Surely, there would be some rules about keeping a wild animal in the house at all times!

Tete’s Favorite Things
Tete is like any other animal in the house that she has had. Over the few months she has had Tete, she’s noticed a few of his favorite things. He loves cat food and never complains about eating it.
Tete also loves to hang out in the bed that Eric’s grandma provided him with. Another favorite thing is to play with the cat toys!

Becoming a Cat
Tete seems to have accepted his fate as a cat. Perhaps the reason that Grandma never knew that Tete was a possum was because he became like a cat! He did everything that the cats did.
When they played, he played. When they ate, he ate. He even used the litter box! Tete seemed so much like a cat, and Grandma wasn’t the only one he fooled.

Eric’s grandma was a very social woman. People would come over to her house and hang out, get some tea, play some bridge, watch some TV, and no one noticed anything wrong. Tons of people looked at Tete and saw a cat.
When she introduced her cats, they never said anything wrong. Now, this could be because they were all elderly and may have not had the best eyesight. Or, it could be because of this.

More Cat Than Possum
Tete was simply more cat than possum. While you would expect for Tete to be wild and fierce, he never was. He would cuddle up like the other cats and have a jolly old time.
