What makes Ava so mean?
For 15 years my 25-lb. white longhaired cat, Ava, terrorized every neighborhood in which we lived. She loved to lie in wait at the end of the hall, snagging unwitting visitors by the ankle. If I went away, the neighbors’ boys had to put on hockey pads in order to feed her.
When we lived in Ashcroft, British Columbia, teenaged boys used to bring their friends to my home and say, “I dare you to walk past that cat.” One young man, awaiting entry into the Canadian Armed Forces, called to me, “Help, Kay, help!! Ava won’t let me out of your bathroom!!”
