Biographies of the animals:
1 – Ketzel
Ketzel (affectionately known as Craphead) is the eldest of the animals in the Silver household. Coal-grey, she carries herself gingerly, as age sets into her bones and makes her move slower than she once did. The signs of her age are obvious – from the flaking dry skin to the occasional unexplained lump that appears and vanishes without a trace. If you look carefully at her feet, you’ll note a few extra toes… they say it’s good luck.
She treats the rest of the animals with a sort of disdain, ignoring the infighting, the intrigue, the drama that goes on around her each and every day. Her only vice, besides being a grumpy old crusty woman, is a tendency towards Vampirism. Never have I met a cat so completely obsessed with the neck of the person in whose lap she relaxes. If she can’t reach the neck with her teeth, she gently places her paws upon it and stares longingly as long as she sits in the lap. It gets disturbing after a while.
