From the outside, if you don’t know her, Kathleen Hale appears as any other typical, normal suburban housewife. Mid to late 30s, maybe a few kids, some animals, likely has a nice house. Nothing strikes you as alarming when it comes to her. Nothing struck me as alarming with Amy Dunne when I first delved into reading ‘Gone Girl’ (along with seeing the movie a couple of weeks ago), either, but boy did that quickly change – and change it did with Kathleen Hale, too.
Much like the fictional Amy Dunne, nothing about Kathleen Hale is normal. Everything about Kathleen Hale is terrifying.
As if her stalking a woman and writing about it wasn’t bad enough, in 2013 she also took to Medium, a blog-publishing platform, where she seemingly taunted the ASPCA with her headline and wrote from the point of view of her animals – PJ the hamster, DJ (PJ’s wife), Quinn the dog, Janet the rat, various fish, Olive the cat, and Mr. Nibbles the rabbit. I didn’t link to her piece, but I’m about to. However, I won’t do so without a warning: It is highly disturbing so click at your own risk.
In the blog, Hale writes about squeezing her hamster until it died, her dog eating rat poison, and shoving her rat’s head into her asthma inhaler and “delivering two fatal pumps.” That’s animal abuse, plain and simple.
