Gladys, also known as the Pest Control Man's Wife, is the third Parasite in The Cat Lady. A grotesque and vile woman in a nurse's dress, she is married to the Pest Control Man, who abducts and tries to molest Susan.
Gladys is a gaunt woman with decaying skin from corrosive substances (most likely bleach). She always walks with a strange, unnatural limp. She wears a bloody nurse costume, complete with a hat. Gladys speaks in a loud, screechy voice, constantly expressing her jealousy regarding her husband's predatory attention towards their female victims.
Gladys and the Pest Control Man live in a large house out in the English countryside, far away from everyone else. Their home is obscurred in a thick fog, making travel on foot dangerous there. The Pest Control Man takes cats and human victims (often women) home with him to kill and eat, though he has tried to rape abducted women that he likes, enraging Gladys. She often disfigures women with bleach, making them undesirable to her husband before the couple murder and eat them. They dispose of what's left of them in chemical baths.
Gladys is just as evil as her husband, if not more so, though is far more intelligent than him. She often belittles and criticizes the Pest Control Man over his stupidity and unfaithfulness, which he dislikes but is too weak-willed to confront her about.
The Cat Lady
Gladys becomes jealous when she sees her husband trying to molest Susan, who is restrained on a metal bed. He denies having done anything and says that Susan will be there for dinner. Gladys is happy to hear this, saying that she is "sick to death of those bloody cats." After her husband leaves, Gladys calls Susan a "nasty little whore" for trying to seduce her husband, and disfigures Susan's face with strong bleach.
When Susan returns to the house, she sees Gladys chopping bloody chunks of human flesh and cat meat in the garden shed. She must distract Gladys with a ringing phone in order to enter the shed and obtain key items.Template:Clr
After killing the Pest Control Man with toxic gas, Susan finds Gladys hidden in a bathtub, waiting to kill her in the backyard. Susan kills Gladys with a shotgun.Template:Clr
You can unlock a Steam achievement by not being killed by Gladys during the chapter. You need to avoid her as much as possible by saving game upon entering every few rooms without incident. You will also need to peek inside the shed instead of entering it as she is in it throughout, until you use the mobile phone to call the telephone in the house. Hiding under the table in the dining room is necessary to get her to pass you when she is walking to answer the house phone and returning to the shed. Walking too far into the dining room whenever it is necessary to hide from her will also trigger her to kill you.
"Look what the cat's dragged in..."
"Take the god-damned mask when you talk to me!"
"And I'm sick to death of them bloody cats..."
"Shut up, you stupid bitch!!!"
"You kept staring at him with these big green eyes..."
"I have to make sure he wont't be attracted to you, anymore..."
