Siamese Cat Donated to a Zoo

My mother found it in a pet store. Back then, you could buy a dog or cat, no questions asked.

The Siamese joined a household already blessed with three dogs and a tomcat. My mother chose the Siamese because “it is beautiful.” A week after it arrived, we all hated the cat. We named it “Demon.”

The cat avoided its litter box, the three dogs, and the other cat in the house. It also ran around insanely, flying between chairs. Mom’s hands were covered with scratches. Demon frightened all of us.

Mom realized she had made a mistake after Demon attempted to scratch the eyes out on one of the dogs. One day that fall, mom informed us that Demon had been donated to the local zoo. We begged to be taken there to visit “Demon,” but mom declined.
