I'd heard Gabby's name mentioned a number of times in the past, but only had a chance to start getting to know him a bit this week.

Leslie tamed him as a kitten and became his sponsor. I have a feeling his name was inspired by his cheerfully vocal personality. Leslie's description of him as fluffy, yakky and precious seems pretty apt.

He was enjoying the warm summer evening with a snooze outside when I found him on Monday, but didn't at all mind perking up to enjoy some pats. He thought being stroked was such a nice idea that he climbed down from his perch and proceed to trail around after me going "mrah mrah mrah".

Only when one of his cat friends appear and start trying to wash and cuddle him did he stop and settle down.
