Laika(VLF052) was born in the Lazuli Mob on Janaury 22, 2002. Her mother was a subortinate female named Ivy and her father was a rover named Gecko. Laika was born in a litter of three with two litter-mates VLP053 and Chase(VLM054). The pups were Ivy's first litter ever. Since they were born to a subortinate female, the pups could have been abandon but there were no pups within the Lazuli at the time. Laika and her siblings survived a burrow raid made by the Whiskers thanks to their grandmother Buttercup to fended off the Whiskers while babysitter Cupcake moved the pups to safety. Laika and her litter-mates survived their first few weeks and started foraging with the adults. Laika is still alive today in the Lazuli.
