'Possessed' maid eats boss' kitten
A MAID in Sibu ate her employer's pet kitten alive on Thursday, leaving the remains strewn in front of the house.
Upon making the gruesome discovery, the home owner confronted the maid, who had apparently been acting oddly for the past two weeks.
"When I queried her, she told me she had eaten the kitten," the employer said of the allegedly possessed maid.
The maid later went berserk, "compelling us to tie her up", said the female employer, as reported in a local daily.
The employer promised the maid that she would be allowed to return home the next day.
That night, the maid spent the night tied up in the family car, outside the house compound.
Her employer was quoted as saying that the maid appeared normal the next day and was untied.
"I took her to buy chicken rice around 10.30am," she said. "After I got the food, she refused to get into the car and created a scene.
"She ran amok. She then got into the car and threw things out. She also bit an ornamental tree," the employer added.
When a policeman tried to handcuff the maid, she bit his arm.
The maid was eventually taken to Sibu Hospital in a straitjacket and with her face covered to stop her from spitting at people.
The employer said the episode had traumatised the family, and added that she had vivid flashbacks of the kitten's skin in front of her house.
