Somebody asked me what is the most bizarre thing I have ever seen in my career. It made me think about the cat.
At one point I covered a half way home for troubled youngsters and adults . Once I went there for a routine visit . A 19 yo girl came to me with scratches all over her, even around her genitals. I immediately called the nursing supervisor to investigate what had happened
The nursing supervisor pointed to the huge male housecat. Apparently the seduction of the cat by the girl had not gone as planned.
The girl confessed . In addition to the cat she had apparently had sex with a door knob, various plumbing tools and had tried of course her charms on fellow boarders . Unfortunately because of the strict no-sex policy she had to finally resort to the cat.
She was started on ssri and the cat was saved.
There is nothing wrong with 19 year olds having voracious sex drives but the reason sex was not allowed on the premises was because literally everybody living there was either a victim of abuse or a perpetrator and in many cases both.
A lot of them were people who even the homeless shelters would not accept.
The girl’s sad background was that she had been abused repeatedly as a child and had even been pimped by her own parents for petty sums of money. Now that she was older she had become an abuser herself.
She was initially taken in by authorities for protection . She later developed a history of repeatedly trying to molest younger children. The transition is far more common then normal people realize. She stayed in children’s homes and then finally this place.
They were all under the care of psychiatrists , and I am sure the psychiatrists were doing their miracles .
I still wonder how many of them got unbroken.
