Asya was a beggarcat at a small farmers' market in Kremenchuk, Ukraine. At daytime, she begged for food and kind passers-by and market sellers gave her some. At night, she lived in a basement. One day, when Asya was begging for a pack or two for a wet cat food for her and her daughter, she was seen by a husband of Natalia Yurchenko. And he was lost! He came home with a story of a beautiful cat he had seen. Story and photos by Natalia Yurchenko.
