Parents Found Their Children’s Tale of a Bedroom “Creature” Hard to Believe Until They Saw It 3 Days Later

We had wild imaginations when we were still kids. Often we get scared and we tell our spooky experiences to our parents. Then they would check our rooms, assure us that our room is safe, and those experiences are only “our imaginations.” But this isn’t the case for the family of Caitlin Burch in Sunbury, Ohio.

… last summer her seven and 10-year-old daughters came into her bedroom one night and told her that there was something in their room. She said the girls used the words "creature" and "rat" to describe the animal.
Her husband Brian then checked the room but didn't find anything, and told their girls it was probably nothing.
A few days after her kids complained about a "creature", Burch said her 10-year-old daughter came into their room at two in the morning screaming that it was an opossum. Her husband got out of the bed to check things out, and that's when he discovered their girls were right. The "creature" that had been living in their daughters’ room was actually an opossum

Caitlin tweeted this unusual, but funny event.

Parents, please thoroughly check your kids’ bedrooms before dismissing the case.
