Ashley and Michael says:
Dexter, a shelter rescue at 9 months, is an outgoing and just overall loving cat. My fiance and I swear he is a human inside a kitties body.Â He is VERY vocal andÂ meowsÂ without holding back. He clearly speaks human as we speak cat. He is a very gentle cat and just overall gets along with our other male catÂ Zeus. Zeus being younger and having a stronger personality clearlyÂ agitatesÂ poor Dexter at times, but he takes it (all) in a relaxed Key West style of stride.Â My fiance always says "Dexter - I don't know how anyone could have given you yup forÂ adoption, but I'm glad they did!" We love him and he really brings us joy. I see him being very good with kids once we start having them :)Â P.S. He loves sleeping my my gym bag and suitcases when we return from travels.
