Eric’s grandma is a one of a kind lady. The effort she puts in to take care of others is unmatchable. Eric can attest to that. Throughout his life, he always notices how much she offers her time and assistance to animals in need, especially cats.
His grandmother has spent lots of time taking care of cats on the streets. The lovely woman puts comfortable beds on her front porch for any creature that needs a home. Not only does she leave a place to sleep for them, but she also gives them food. Any cat that comes her way is in good company. He describes her:
“She loves animals and taking care of them whenever she can. It kind of just motivates you to do better and treat other beings better too.”
When Eric recently visited his beloved grandma, he noticed something unusual. Usually, his grandmother has only cats in the house, but no this time. One of the “cats” was definitely not a cat. It was an opossum!
Eric posted a picture of the occurrence on his Twitter. He could not believe that his grandma didn’t realize that the animal was not a cat. He comments,
“She reassured me it was one of her cats. I told her it wasn’t what she thought it was.”
After telling her the truth Eric was shocked by her reaction:
“I laughed for a good five minutes. 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.”
After finding out the truth the grandma took a closer look at the opossum. She couldn’t believe it! But she was not alarmed. Eric recollects,
“She kinda just sat there. Then she got a little closer … and slowly looked up at me with the biggest grin on her face and said, ‘Well, he hasn’t bothered me yet, so I’m OK with him being here!”
