Mr. and Mrs. Vance Minor had two old cats and a bunch of half grown kittens that made their home in the hay barn snug- gled between some bales of hay. First Mr. Minor missed the kiltens and couldn't imagine what happened to them. The two grown cats were fat and pretty and al- ways met him when he went out to do the chores. One morning only one came to meet him. Minor found the oth- er cat with one shoulder and it's head eaten off. A few mornings later, week during the snow and ice to be went to do the chores. No cat! So when he pulled down a bale of hay to feed the cows there sat a 'possum eating on the last of his cat crop. Minor grabbed the 'possum by the tail and bashed its head against a rock. Minor didn't act- ually see the 'possum kill the cat, but the cat was still warm. The cat had its throat slit and the 'possum had just begun to work on its head.
