The pet sponsored was Cuba. From his Petfinder profile: “In his foster mom’s words: ‘Cuba. Cubes. Cubicle. Whatever you call this baby, he’ll respond — and respond he does! Every time you walk into a room, Cuba happily greets you with an adorable meow-chirp. This sweet boy loves to be cuddled, pet, and picked up, and he rewards your affection with a low, rumbling purr. And he’s SO handsome — with his huge paws, gorgeous stripes, and look-deep-inside bright sea-green eyes, you’ll feel like you have a real tiger in the house! Cuba is scared of other cats, so he needs to be an only cat, and prefers women. Can you be Cuba’s sweetheart and give him a forever home? He’d love to meet you!’ Cuba was someone’s beloved cat. A woman called from Waltham complaining that the local shelters repeatedly ignored her calls and this cat was outside her house for days. We took Cuba to our vet, where it was determined he is about 7-8 years old, already neutered and disease-negative. We updated his shots. Our vet said he had recently had his teeth cleaned, so we looked for his owner for weeks, to no avail; without a microchip, it’s tough. We are looking to place this lovely little male in a quiet home.” Meet Cuba:
