Sputnik No. 63 is a 5-year-old, black-and-gray tiger male domestic short hair mix. He weighs about 9 pounds and has not been neutered. Sputnik was found as a stray in Haiku and brought to the Maui Humane Society on May 4. "He loves to relax outside in the cattery, preferably in the sun," society officials said. "And is happy to be around other cats. Sputnik is a very affectionate cat, yet is not demanding of attention."
