Birka is a fluffy, little cutie. She has longish black hair with areas of smoky gray under her chin and on her belly. We also love her gray pantaloons.
She is a scrappy, little girl who's just a little too cute for her own good. We want to pick her up every five minutes, but she likes to play hard to get. When she's sweet though, she's sooo sweet. She stretches her front paws up your legs and, when you pick her up, she always manages to land all 4 feet up against your chest or lap, just like how most cats swivel and wriggle to always land on their feet. She likes to be held, cuddled up on your chest, so she can rub her little fluffy face against your chin. Even when she's not feeling cuddly, she is still good company and always likes to be in the same room with her humans. Birka tolerates other cats and dogs, but prefers humans.
Birka made herself a favorite of the volunteer looking after her group of stray cats because she was so friendly, sweet, and cute. Our volunteer named her Birka (meaning squirrel in Russian) for her quickness and her fluffy tail. When she became pregnant with her first litter of kittens, our volunteer decided to rescue the whole family. Even though she was barely more than a kitten herself, Birka took care of her kittens and saw them all settled in good, loving homes. Now she's ready to find a new happy home for herself.
