Kirsten finds Britta with Caro under the bed

The next morning, Kirsten finds that Britta is missing, and is worried she might have crawled down and got smothered by the heavy covers, but isn't able to find her. Lisbeth says that Britta couldn't have gotten too far, but Kirsten fears if she wasn't under the blankets she would have been frozen. Kirsten finds Britta sleeping under the bed, next to Caro, having been kept warm thanks to his fur.
