Arrival Story:
Gus was pulled from a local shelter a couple of days before Christmas just before he was to be put to sleep due to URI (a bad cold). The rescuer who pulled him was going out of town for the holidays, so etook him "until another foster could be found" --- of course, he has turned out to be such a lover-boy, I'm not sure I'll let him go to another foster!

Bio:
Gus is a confident and handsome red classic tabby boy - not the least bit shy. He started coming & crawling up in my lap to cuddle almost as soon as I brought him home. He does have a tendency to play roughly - grabbing my arm with a bite and a rabbit kick, but I'm working on breaking him of that. He also plays roughly with the other kitties - hopefully they will teach him some boundaries. Otherwise, he's a real sweetie who enjoys attention and doesn't like to be left alone all the time. He would probably do well in a home with at least one other young, playful cat (or dog, possibly) that will not be intimidated by rough play. Update 3/9/10: He's mellowed considerably - either as a result of being around other cats and me (who don't tolerate excessive roughness) or as a result of being neutered. I took him to a cat show on a lark & he was such a natural that I've taken him to a couple more shows - he now has the title "Grand Master" in TICA (The International Cat Association). Update 1/31/12: Gus really took off on the cat show circuit! The judges and the public love him. He loves getting up on the judging table and stretching up for a scratch on the scratching post or lying down for a cuddle from the judge. He quickly earned enough points to become a "Supreme Grand Master" in TICA. He became an International Winner during the 2010-11 show season by earning enough points to be 25th Best Household Pet internationally. I haven't shown him as much this season, but he is still doing well -- at this time he is #53 internationally.
