He's gotten a little paunchy and he's quite spoiled. But Gus the orange church cat helps lift parishioners' spirits and keeps them entertained, say his closest friends at St. John's Episcopal Church.
He's a vocal greeter, patient playmate for small children, and is gentle to a fault, says Jennifer Adams, part-time secretary at the 150-plus-year-old Marysville institution.
"They'd have to get rid of me before they ever gave Gus away," Adams said.
