Pet of the Week: Gus

Pet of the Week

Gus is a 3-year-old male cat. Get a load of these whiskers. This cat is something else. Gus is a great hugger and gives lots of licks, his version of kisses. If you need a weighted blanket, he is your cat. He loves to park a seat on your lap and not move. He is good with other cats. He is a big mellow love bug, refreshing for the shelter staff, as they have been getting some real independent cats as of late. He is proof spring is coming and love is in the air.

To adopt a pet, call or stop by the animal shelter across from the Public Works Department off the Sterling Highway. The shelter is open from noon-7 p.m. Tuesday, noon-5 p.m. Wednesday-Friday, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday-Sunday. Closed Mondays. For more information, call 235-3141.
