Mr and Mrs. Vance Minor had two old cats and a hunch of half grown kittens that made their home in the hay barn snuggled between some bales of hay. First Mr. Minor missed the kittens and couldn’t imagine what happened to them The two grown cats were fat and pretty and always met him when he went out to do the chores. One morning only one came to meet him. Minor found the other cat with one shoulder and it's head eaten off. A few mornings later, —last week during the snow and ice to be exact—Minor 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 bv the tail and hashed it* head against a rock. Minor didn't actually see the 'possum kill the cat, hut the cat was still warm. The cat had its throat slit and the possum had just begun to work on its head.
