No, Gabby is not short for Gabriel! This big, handsome guy earned his name with his conversational skills. A talker and a real purr machine, he has a deep rumble of pleasure when he is petted. He came to Lost Dog and Cat Rescue when his 92 year-old owners concluded they could no longer take care of a cat. So he is used to a quiet household, to not being picked up or held, and is learning to play again (video of Gabby chasing the laser dot).
Although he is a little timid to start with and takes some time to settle in and become comfortable, this sweet character is a very sociable fella (video of Gabby purring while being petted) who chills with other kitties and likes to keep an eye on the action: whether the birds in the yard, the people in the family room or, most of all, what is going on in the kitchen and whether there is a can of something for him!
Don’t let his big guy looks fool you; Gabby is a fashion forward kind of guy whose passion is… shoes. Check out the photos in his shoe gallery, and this video! You will never have to worry about putting your shoes away if he becomes a member of the family. He will lay down his body to guard them for you! So why not put on a pair of those shoes and walk them over to meet Gabby?
Estimated date of birth: September 2012.
