Happy Tales

Dexter & his dog

Dexter & DogDexter has only been with us for two weeks, but it feels like our family has always been missing something until we got him. He was shy and nervous in the shelter, but when we got him home, he was a completely new cat. When Dexter isn’t stealing our hearts by cuddling up in our laps, he is running around and making a game out of anything he can get his paws on. He even responds with a short, cute "meow" when you say hello. I have never met such a lighthearted, curious and ambitious animal as Dexter.

Dexter had never been around a dog before, but you would never be able to tell. Dexter and Skylar (our golden retriever) snuggle every day, whether they’re taking a nap or laying down for a full night’s rest.
