I met Parsley after reading about him in the Oban Times. He’s adorable, self opinionated, and very, very heavy! What a marvellous ambassador for the friendliness of Oban. Soft, welcoming and purrrrrfect.

I met Parsley in June when I went to Oban Live. He was so charming and loved the attention! Such a credit to the CM, who was also such a lovely lady! Both a credit to Oban. Hope to see him again this June!

Visited Oban 3 times in 2017 in the hope of meeting Parsley the Ambassador Cat. Succeeded on Friday 20th October at the Hope Cat Cafe. He and his owner Fiona were lovely and we hope to see them both again in 2018.

Parsley is a very charismatic ambassador for the area. We travelled from the Glasgow area to meet him. He was very well behaved, looked stunning, and gave the most wonderful cuddles. I am hoping to visit him again soon
