Nicknames: Gussy, Monster, Mickey, Poopoo Kitty (he had giardia and the name stuck)
Likes: Taunting the dogs from the other side of the baby gate
Pet-Peeves: When Bates gets mad and runs away
Favorite Toy: The plastic rings that go around a gallon of milk
Favorite Nap Spot: The closet
Favorite Food: Wet IVD Green Peas and Lamb (yuck!)
Skills: He likes to play with my makeup sponges and will find them wherever I try to hide them.
Arrival Story: When my beloved Bob died, I wanted desperately to fill that hole and thought a bouncy kitten would be the answer. Met him at a shelter, but he was already promised to another home. I told the volunteer my story and got a call the next day that he was mine, not because the other person backed out, but because she thought I needed him more. Like my other cat Bates, Gus was abandoned at 2 weeks.
Bio: He is pretty attached to me (scared of my husband) and likes to nurse on my ear. He was just diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome after about 3 months of sporadic diarrhea. Poor little guy.
