Gage - #713252 — 8 Years Old — Domestic Long Hair — Male

“Is that a tuna sandwich in your hand? May I please have a bite?” Gage loves food… a little too much, actually. This hefty, handsome lap cat will need a diet and some tough love when it comes to declining his convincing requests to share your meals. Brought to the Humane Society of Southern Arizona with a very bad temper, Gage would hiss, growl and swat when you tried to pet him. But with terribly matted fur, Gage was only showing his discomfort at the tight clumps of hair pulling his skin. Now he’s sporting a new look — furry boots! And his cattitude? He’s made a complete transition into an affectionate, happy and comfortable companion. Won’t you give this big love muffin a hug?

Come meet Gage! He's currently living at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, 3450 N. Kelvin Blvd. The Humane Society is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. The phone number is 327-6088.
