Sammy adopted Gabby, 2 years ago at Christmas time.  Gabby had been purposely abandoned in a motel room.  Lots better than out in the cold, anyhow.  Sammy and SW named the beautiful cat Gabby as the cat talks(meows) a good deal…she thinks she is a “people”. Keep up the good work Yakima Valley Pet Rescue Sincerely yours, Marilyn M. Hopper, Portland OR
