He thought he found the perfect hiding spot,

…and a perfect spot it really is.

His name is Gus but he’s not your ordinary cat. He could still remember the day when he walked into this random yellow door and imposed his stay in the house where a family of five resides— a mother, a father, and three younglings.

But don’t get the wrong idea. He wasn’t adopted, he wasn’t even noticed. Ever. Gus considers himself a stray cat with a home. He was really not trying to hide. He just finds comfort behind the white drapes near the kitchen door. He even tries to bare his paws in the open for them to see but the humans always fail to do so.

Then one day Gus felt his situation’s not right and so he finally exclaimed, “Oh come on human! It is day 65 and you still haven’t realized I’m not a curtain! Geez.”
