Flashback Post – Famous Gus

So how are these going to work?

I found a website that gives out random days from a date range.  I put in dates from about the time I started taking a lot of pictures … say February 2010.  If the date comes out before that, I’ll rescan from older pictures and see what comes up.  It actually gives five by default.

The Date: about June 16, 2010

This is just after Gus had some tooth extractions and had his coat shaved down.  I was never able to get him fully cut again, as the other times I tried to combine it with dentals they took longer and decided to quit.

On this one, the vet tech was complaining that Gus kept snapping at him.  I just laughed, as Gus and his snapping at groomers is why I was paying him to do the job!

Another thing about this picture was that for years, the post about this was the #1 Google search for “shaved tuxedo cat”.  The picture is still the #1 hit on the Image Search.
