Facts about Dexter

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Dexter is a handsome 4 year old kitty who was rescued from animal control after his owner dumped him there due to allergies. This poor boy did not take being dumped very well and was very unhappy. Given time in a foster home, he opened up and showed what a great kitty he really is!

If he's not exploring every nook and cranny of the foster's apartment, he is sitting for hours on the window sill looking out to the great outdoors. Also, he has these crazy kitten moments where he will tear around the apartment after a toy. He also has his calm moments where he will snuggle right up to you and purr you to sleep.

He's not in love with the foster's dog but tolerates her. They can be left alone together and are fine and have even been caught sleeping on the same bed.

Dexter is a sweet guy who just has some attachment issues. Therefore, he needs someone who will understand how upsetting it can be to lose everything you've known and will be willing to give him the time he needs to adjust to his new home.
