Gabi Duane, from Dublin, Ireland, is a 10-year-old writer who has gone viral thanks to an interview - with her cat! Gabi's interviewee is called Coco, and as the interview reveals, she has a bit of a temper, especially when it comes to tummy rubs.

Kids do the darndest things, don't they? Gabi's father, Paul, posted his daughter's interview, never imagining that his daughter's creativity would go viral.
Inspired by diagrams online on "Where to Pet Your Cat," young Gabi decided she wanted to make her own diagram based on Coco. “She drew one but wasn’t happy with it, so instead she decided to interview the cat."
And the rest is hiss-tory.

The interview starts of on an even, pleasant tone, and Coco is a complete purrfessional.
Me: Coco. Can I rub you on the head?
Me: The back?
But when Gabi asks an innocent question, whether or not Coco preferred to have her tummy rubbed, things got a little intense.
Me: The tummy?
Me: The legs?
Me: The tail?
Coco: ABSOLUTELY NOT!
Me: The butt?
Coco: IS THERE SOMETHING WRONG WITH YOU?!?! THIS INTERVIEW IS OVER!!!
Any cat owner will tell you that this interview is pretty spot-on; it's clear that Gabi has a keen, humorous insight into the mind of a cat! An aspiring writer inspired by the works ofd J.K. Rowling and Sibéal Pounder, Gabi has a bright future ahead of her!
