Musya, a soon-to-be mother
As soon as he opened the gift and saw what she was talking about, the vet burst out laughing at her. “I’ve never seen anything like this before,” the man shouted with a grin on his face. Veterinary staff separated the hedgehog kittens from their mother Musya and placed them in separate containers before leaving the room with Alice and the rest of the creatures on the other side. The fact that they had witnessed something both spectacular and scary was only realised after they had come home from their adventure.
It would be impossible for Musya to sit back and watch while one set of her children garnered recognition while the other went ignored because of her love for them. The location was convenient because hedghog eggs were being housed in a neighbouring box, so she and her children had relocated there. All of her children gathered around her, wrapping themselves about her to keep warm in the freezing weather.
