Laika had his head resting atop folded arms as he stared at a large egg. It was nestled in his fencing mask, which was sitting atop his desk. He had never seen an egg like this before, and it failed to meet the description of any known egg. The closest he was able to get was an ostrich egg, but even then the markings were off. Those eggs were suppose to be just plan white, but this one was cream-colored, and had some sort of gold medallion mark towards the top.
“Just how is a cat suppose to come out of this…” Laika mumbled as he continued to question it. The person who gave it to him said ‘something of a cat,’ but he was pretty damn sure that cats were mammalian. Unless this came from some weird cat-platypus hybrid, there was no way this egg was logically possible.
Laika was about to pick it up, when suddenly the egg started to move. It only lasted for a few moments, but it was enough to make him ignore the knocking on the door behind him.
