Will a possum eat a kitten? We've been losing kittens out in the barn. Something is eating them almost entirely.

Oposums like to eat both plants and meat. They mostly eat small creatures, like cockroaches, flies, frogs, rats, spiders, and mice. That being said, something is obviously getting your kittens, and it would be a very good idea to put them somewhere they can remain safe while they grow up. Take the kittens and their mom inside or set them up in your garage, a shed, or a barn where predators can't reach them.

I've never heard of them eating kittens. How very sad though. Do you have coyotes in the area? That could be the culprit. I would be sure that they were in a safe area at night.
