If you’re an animal lover, then you can understand why someone would have it in their heart to take in a stray animal or two.
Eric Hertlein’s grandma shares her home with animals in need.
Needless to say, Eric was expecting to encounter some of his grandma’s feline friends when he decided to stop by her home in Kansas to say hello.
When Eric walked onto the porch, which doubles as a bedroom for grandma’s furry friends, he was shocked to notice that one of the cats wasn’t a cat at all.
Turns out, Eric’s grandma had been taking care of a full-grown opossum for a number of months, and the wild animal seems to have made himself right at home.
Cases of mistaken animal identity aren’t unusual, but the sneaky opossum certainly got extremely lucky this time.
Eric shared the hilarious photo on Twitter.
Can you spot the difference with the “cats”?
