Watching Snookums the hamster for 3 weeks inspired us to become a foster family for Alexandria Animal shelter. I filled out the paperwork and one day later, we had BUBBA! He's a neutered domestic shorthair cat. He was given up by his military family because they had to move and couldn't take him. He's been in the shelter 3 months and they are at capacity. He's super gentle and purrs all the time. He doesn't have any illnesses and is up on his shots; however, he is OBESE! He's 24 POUNDS! He can hop on the couch, but pants when walking up the stairs. He's on a strict diet and with all the room in our house, he's surely to lose some weight. We don't know how long we will keep him, but he's up for adoption if you're interested!
