In Memoriam: Gus

Gus was only with us from May 2007 until March 2008, when misadventure sent him over the Rainbow Bridge to chase mice among the clouds. He was a wonderfully friendly cat, and he will always have a place in our hearts.

This is Gus when he first arrived at our house. Note how regal he looks even with his tail in his food bowl. His dignity is clearly still intact.

You are feeling very sleepy. When you awaken, you will feed me sushi-grade tuna and then pet me all day long.

Sometimes Gus' favorite spot was taken, but he was always a resourceful cat.

Gus loved to sprawl on the floor with his little white vampire fangs showing, daring you to try and tickle his belly.

This is one of our favorite shots of Gus, posed on our fence against the neighbor's Japanese Maple.

Gus was a true party animal. <grin>
