Swipe right on Gus!

If Gus could write a dating profile, his tagline would be “Looking for love and ready to settle down.” He would also like you to know that he is a mature gentleman who believes in romance. Gus recently became a “health nut” to shed a few pounds and now he enjoys staying active, whether it be a morning zoomies session or playing with crinkle toys, and, if he’s feeling frisky, attacking a catnip kick-a-roo. He hopes that you’re into PDA, because he has a big heart and loves to cuddle. He also enjoys long naps and chin scratches. 

This bachelor even comes with a great character reference—his foster mom thinks the world of him! She will tell you that Gus is a lovebug who seeks love and affection while purring up a storm. He can be quite flirtatious! His signature move is to come up close to her face, wrap his paws around her arm, and nuzzle up to her. Then comes the head bump to seal the deal. Works every time! 

Sometimes, Gus can be a little too passionate and will nip or hiss if he becomes overstimulated. But Gus’s reactive behaviour has lessened over time as he has grown more comfortable in his new environment and his foster has learned to read his body language. She’ll be sure to fill you in about all his preferences to give your relationship a strong foundation!

His foster would also like you to know that Gus is the strong, silent type—unless it’s mealtime, then he has plenty to say! While he loves company most of the time, he can also be very independent, and sometimes a bit brooding. Gus is also not a fan of loud noises or sudden movements—both make him jumpy and potentially reactive. A quiet home with an experienced cat owner and no small children would be the ideal living situation for him. His previous relationship with a cat was a negative experience and he doesn’t want to get his heart broken again. And although he recently spent time with two Shih Tzus and everyone got along swimmingly, the best possible scenario for Gus would be if he is the only pet in your life.
