Claire was very sad that Jelly and Red Conan had to be sent to the fluffy shelter. After what Jelly had done to Snowflake though, the idea of keeping her was impossible.
Snowflake went to the vets, and had her rear leg amputated. For a while, this meant that Snowflake could only drag herself around using her front two legs, and had real trouble using the litterbox. Nutella looked after her though, dragging nummies to her mummah, and Claire fed her by hand for a while.
Snowflake gladly adopted the other babies. Blueberry, Strawberry and Nana were very scared after Jelly went to the shelter, but they understood that their mummah was a bad fluffy, and they loved Snowflake and Nutella, so all was well. Snowflake hugged them and loved them and fed them miwkies. She sang to them and taught them everything she knew, and was a good mummah.
Claire noticed that Nutella was growing a unicorn horn, and realised that she was an Alicorn. At first, the other babies were afraid of her, but soon they realised that Nutella was a good fluffy, and meant them no harm.
After another couple of weeks, Claire’s parents insisted that the baby fluffies, who were now weaned, and eating foods like mashed bananas, be adopted out into new homes. Several of Alice’s friends wanted a new baby fluffy, and so Blueberry, Strawberry and Nana quickly found themselves with new mummahs. Lots of the little girls already had a fluffy as well, so the baby fluffies had a “nyu fwiend” to be with from the start.
Nutella begged Claire to let her stay with Snowflake though, and knowing how Nutella had suffered with a rejecting mother, Claire begged her parents to let her keep them both. Understanding that other fluffies were scared of Alicorns, Claire’s parents agreed. Claire kept Snowflake and Nutella for many years, and even took them to University with her.
Many years later, when Claire was nineteen years old, Snowflake died of old age. Just a year later, Nutella died too. They had lived long and happy years, and Claire had loved them very much. By now, Claire was a young woman, and the fluffies had taught her that all life was precious and impermanent. Claire never kept fluffies again, but always remembered her little babies, the love the had shared, and how precious that could be.
