Family Animals - MORTIS

This is Alice. My wife quickly came up with that name - don't ask me how.
Alice is the youngest uninvited member of our family. She just showed up on our doorstep in November of 2004 and appeared to be starving and freezing to death.
Alice's personality, behaviour and appearance is strikingly similar to a male named Rudy that we had who mysteriously went missing less than a year before Alice's sudden arrival on our property; I sometimes wonder if she is Rudy reborn. No surprise then that she's extremely agile and a proficient hunter - a frequent and disturbing occurrence for both of us.
