Big enough to fit in her hand at the time.
While looking over at the mound of dirt, she came upon Musya, a kitten that was just big enough to fit in her hand at the time. I remember her as a small kitten, an orphaned kitten that had managed to survive the harsh winter. She, on the other hand, was not going to be able to last much longer.
Musya was discovered by Alice with icicles growing from the tip of her nose. Would the kitten have any chance of surviving? To give the kitten the best chance of survival, Alice decided to bring her to work with her at the zoo, where veterinarians tried everything they could to keep her alive, and the kitten survived.
