Cat of the Week: Alisha

Alisha

Take one look in Alisha’s cheerful, smiling eyes, and pet her as she oh-so-affectionately paws at your arm gently begging for more pets, and you’d have no idea that Alisha is a survivor of horrible neglect and abuse. She’s talkative, outgoing, and gets along well with other cats and any humans she has met.

For the first 2 years of her life, she suffered from severe malnutrition and neglect, stunting her growth. Alisha is the size of a kitten, although she is estimated to be between two and three years old. Because of malnutrition and starvation early in life, she will always be an itty-bitty-kitty.

Alisha 2In more recent months, Alisha and her furry companions were subjected to beatings by mean boys who don’t like cats. Sadly, some of her fur-siblings were killed. One of those meanies shot Alisha in the head with a BB gun, but she received surface wounds that healed up perfectly with treatment. Some kind folks stepped in and helped Alisha find a rescue group where she could safely heal up from her BB injuries, get good vet care, and get her belly fed with all of the nutritious food she can eat.

She looks like a kitten, and she’s playful like a kitten. Did we mention she is the most forgiving, lovable, little survivor we’ve ever met? If you want a kitty that loves people (despite everything) and really wants her own special human being to be her best friend, Alisha’s your girl.

Alisha is spayed, vaccinated, micro-chipped, and FIV and Feline Leukemia negative.
