Aisha is 18 months old and is a European Shorthair (Moggie.) I found sweet little Aisha in a rubbish bin while visiting Greece in late 2004. She was very tiny, very sick, thin and half-dead from hunger and had almost no fur left because of ringworms. I had to extend my Greek vacation for a month in order to get her well enough and to get all the papers and shots needed in order for me to bring her back with me to Denmark.
Aisha is just a bundle of love and joy and it seems somehow that she realizes that she has been given a second chance in life. Her zest for life and having fun is just so heartwarming to see. She has 5 cat siblings, all rescue cats and she just loves to "harrass" them all and keep them on their toes. They all love her dearly and groom and cuddle their "little sister" all the time. She loves being spoiled by them all and gets away with anything where they are concerned. The world is definitely a better place with Aisha in it and I am so lucky I found her.
The picture is of Aisha on a walk with me in the woods next to where I live. She learned very early to walk on a lead and can't wait to go chase butterflies, bumblebees and anything else that catches her eye. She even wants to chase dogs, horses and bicycles, but I think she'd be biting off a bit more than she could chew if I let her do that. Maybe I should have named her "Braveheart" instead...

Oh! She is beautiful! She looks like my Teeter. Weren't you an angel to rescue this little baby. I think little gray shorthairs have the sweetest dispositions and are so loving. It seems these cats are so readily abandoned when they make the best companions of all. She looks so healthy now, it made my day to read your hearwarming story. You are truly an angel for rescuing all the kitties.
Vickie, Aisha is beautiful, wow! I love the picture with the flowers, and I know how much the two of you look forward to your walks.
What a fascinating story of your trip to Greece and extending your stay to bring her home into your loving family.
You will be Blessed many times over for your generous heart and love you bestow on these babies.
Thank you so much for sharing her story, it is a real eye opener as to the extent to which one will go to save a precious companion pet.
I think animals know when they are rescued that they have a home with a heart. They give so much back, ask for so little. Hugs to you and your kittenfamily.
What a beautiful cat, she looks proud and has great dignity.
