Bubba the cat was brought to the Cayman Islands Humane Society in March 2019. He was very skinny and dirty and was also un-neutered. Being un-neutered or intact, means he was still able to breed with female cats and make more kittens. The team at the Cayman Islands Humane Society ran tests on Bubba the Cat to ensure he had no life-threatening illnesses such as FEV, FelV, and heartworm. He was routinely vaccinated and de-wormed. He was then placed in the shelter, awaiting his new home. This is a procedure all animals go through when they are taken to the Cayman Islands Humane Society. This is to ensure that pets are not suffering from treatable conditions and are also not carrying contagious diseases to other animals in care of the shelter.

A volunteer who visits the Cayman Islands Humane Society often, decided to foster Bubba for the long Easter weekend as he seemed very quiet. Whilst the shelter has a wonderful area for cats and kittens, some do find the environment stressful. Fostering animals over long weekends, not only gives the animal a well-deserved break from shelter life, it can also ease the work over Public Holidays when shelter volunteers are fewer in number.
As a foster parent you get everything you need to care for the animal including:
- Collar and Lead
- Vet bills covered
- Required medication
- Cat litter tray
- Cat litter
It would seem as though Bubba did have a loving pet parent, but because he wasn’t neutered, he got lost and ended up separated from his family. Please call the Cayman Islands Humane Society and find out how you can get your pet spayed and neutered. Bubba’s foster parent has fallen in love with Bubba, and he is now a ”foster fail”. We wish Bubba the best of luck in his new journey.
So please pop by the Cayman Islands Humane Society today, there are lots of pets, like Bubba who need your help. As we always say, if you can’t foster or adopt you can share this post!
