Gray Tabby

Cuddling, naps in the sun, hunting wee creatures, catnip & his buddy Keebler.

Pup getting too rough, mean tom cats, the vacuum cleaner and worst of all, visiting the vet.

Favorite Toy:
Anything with catnip in it, Pup - when she'll play nice, real mice & moles to hunt.

Favorite Nap Spot:
Whichever window bed has sun shining on it.

Favorite Food:
Beef, venison and chicken - he will hardly eat cat food at all. He loves goat's milk, but will settle for Whiskas cat milk.

His special skill is his ability to get along with just about any other critter - he's very sweet natured.

indoors and outdoors

Arrival Story:
Gus was dumped in our neighborhood as a kitten. I noticed him wandering around crying for his mom and started putting food out for him, but he would'nt let me near. My dear cat Keebler extended the paw of friendship to this little furby in need and started bringing him moles and mice to play with - which totally won Gus' heart. They started napping together, Keebler would groom and comfort Gus and Keebler's brother Bailey began to play and snuggle with Gus too. Eventually they convinced him to give the house and me a try. With everyone's love and encouragement Gus grew into the big, beautiful, confident and loving cat he is today.

Gus and Keebler are still best buddies and will often share the window bed, especially when it's cold. Gus is the only cat my dog Precious really likes. She's made him an honorary member of her pack, a mixed blessing for Gus since Precious regularly engages in dominance behavior to remind Gus that she is the alpha dog. However he does enjoy some benefits too, she washes him (which he rather likes), she allows him to eat out of her bowl and comes to his defense if another cat picks on him. They also enjoy playing slappy paws together. Gus is a sweet natured guy with the softest fur - more like an angora rabbit than cat fur. He had the neighbor's cat, Miss Kitty, wrapped around his paw, she would even let him share her pillow on the back porch (the neighbors caught them napping together and told me). Sadly Miss Kitty died. Now every Spring Gus hopes someone in the neighborhood will adopted a new little gal he could work his magic on, but so far the only other cats around are toms with bad attitudes. So on Gus' behalf I'm making this announcement to the lovely ladies of Catster, if you're looking for boyfriend who is sweet, romantic and handsome, look no further, Gus is your perfect 10 and available too!

The rules of the game:

Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Cats who are tagged need to write in their diary about the seven facts and the rules. You choose seven cats to tag and list their names. Don't forget to send them pawmail so they know they've been tagged and should read your diary.

Seven Random Facts:

1. I a skilled hunter of bunny, mouse, bird and mole.

2. Window beds are the best, every cat should demand as many as possible.

3. I'm an honorary member of Precious Pup's pack.

4. Precious Pup is often an overbearing pack leader, but I try to be patient, she can't help being a dog.

5. I love the ladies and the ladies love me! Well why not, I'm handsome, charming and have fur too silky to resist.

6. I hate cat food and will only eat real meat, preferrably beef, chicken or venison. I also love goat's milk and Whiskas cat milk.

7. I am the youngest among my cat family and want everyone to get along, I like to play-wrestle, but hate real fights. Cats should set a good example and be civil with one another.

Here are the 7 kitties I've tagged:
