Gump(VWM132) was born on October 14, 2008 in the Whiskers.

His mother was Ella and his father was Thundercat. Gump was born in a large litter of six pups, his litter-mates were his two other brothers Pumplemousse(VWM134) and Rozza(VWM131), and his three sisters McGee(VWF130), Enili(VWF133) and Popple(VWF136). In March 2009, when Gump was only five months old, the Whiskers had an hour long battle with the Kung Fu. During the confusion Gump's siblings Pumplemousse and Popple were separated from the rest of the Whiskers. They were never seen again and were believed to have been killed. In August 2009, Gump went roving at Toyota with five Whiskers males, Nugget, Juno, Marico, Sabota and Savuka. In December 2009, Gump roved once again at Toyota with his younger brother Pitio. The five eldest males left the Whiskers in early 2010, making Gump and his brother Rozza the oldest subordinate males under their father. By this time Gump was starting to rove more often and became one of the biggest rovers from the Whiskers along with Pitio. In late 2010, his sister McGee was evicted and disappared, leaving just Gump, Rozza and Enili as the last of their litter. In mid 2011 Ella lost dominance to Gump's older half sister Oriole, who then lost dominance to Enili. In June 2011 Thundercat evicted Gump from the group for an unknown reason, however he allowed Gump to return to the mob. In July 2012 Gump went roving along with his brothers Rozza and Pitio. Together they left the Whiskers for good.


The three rovers joined the newly formed Überkatz Mob. Most of the resident males had left, so the rovers found it easy to settle into the group. Gump established himself as the dominant male alongside the Uberkatz dominant female, Tina. Together Gump and Tina began to produce litters. In July 2013 Gump started to join his brothers on their roving trips, leaving his position temporarily available. In July 2014 while Gump was away Pitio established himself as the dominant male. Gump returned the next month but could not reclaimed his position, so he took the role of a subordinate male. He spent much of his time roving at rival groups such as the Kung Fu and Baobab. At one point he successfully mated with the Baobab's dominant female Amarula, making him the possible father of her third litter. Gump left the Uberkatz along with some of his sons in July 2015. Following this, he was no longer mentioned in any life history reports and it is presumed that he was Last Seen.
