Abandoned as a kitten, Birba was found by a bin in Valmontone, Italy.
She was brought home that day and has been part of the Pepe family ever since.
Birba, short for birbante, means rascal in English, and is true of Birba. On one occasion Birba managed to escape the balcony fencing and fell several floors, she made a miraculous recovery and was back on her paws in no time.
Birba is fourteen years old, with a big personality and plenty of attitude. You'll know when she's done with your attention.
