Gus is living his best life and getting his glow going on this gloriously sunny day!

This handsome creamsicle-colored cutie is a SUPER SNUGGLER and adores hanging out with his foster family! They say, "The best photos I have are of him snuggling. He is SUCH a lover boy; he loves to snuggle and nap with us and is literally always right in our faces. He will sleep in the bed with us all night & then some.

Perfect for someone who wants a cuddly kitty! He's also very playful; he loves chasing after my cat and wrestling with her. He gets the wiggle butts and then gallops after her like a little pony. It's hilarious! " Though Gus might be 10, we know he has plenty of years left and plenty of love to give to his new furever family.
