Title: In Memory of Cuban

Artist: Judy Lazarus

Medium: Acrylic

Dimensions: 14" x 18"

Animal Depicted: Cuban

Cuban came to Stray Rescue with a lot of health problems. He had very serious feline diabetes and it took months to regulate his levels. That in tandem with his other medical issues was hard on Cuban. He became very close with the vet staff and our Chief Operations Officer, Kiarra.

Eventually, he was brought to live in Kiarra's office so he could have room to stretch and play. He even got a roommate, a shy cat named Squatter. They were instantly attached and seeing their daily cuddle puddles warmed everyone's hearts.

At the beginning of 2023, his health took a turn for the worse. Keeping quality of life at the forefront, the vet staff and Kiarra made the difficult decision to let Cuban cross the rainbow bridge.

Though heartbreaking, knowing he was free from his pain provided some comfort. The vet staff and Kiarra gave Cuban the happiest days of his life. "Roam free you perfect, perfect boy."
