Vaska's new responsibility
Their mother died after giving birth to a litter of five kittens.
He quickly tried to save the mother and kittens but he failed utterly. Three of the kittens perished and the mother died a few minutes later. Overcomed with grief, he reluctantly buried the mother and dead kittens.
The reason why they perished is that they succumbed to the cold.
Two months later,
Aloric comes to visit Vaska on what he was up too, he then went head over heels for the two three month old kittys.
Ok so who owns the kittens? And why did the other three die?
Are you still going to work on this?
