If Gus somehow manages to ship himself off and he lands on your doorstep, please take good care of him. He's on a low-iodine diet and enjoys quarter of a cup of food twice daily. Also, he requires 2 to 3 minutes of belly scratching when you come home from work or he becomes slightly cantankerous.
Otherwise, he's pretty low maintenance.
And don't let the box fool you. He's not all that fragile. Gus is one of the prime reasons why we can't own nice things.
Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
