Arrival Story:
Almost a year ago I went to Petsmart looking for a long haired Maine Coon, my husbands favorite breed, and I came across Dex (Then called Oreo). He was so cute I thought I'd take the lady's info and run it by the hubs. Well as it turns out a co-worker offered him a free kitten (a Maine Coon Mix: Merlotte). Fast forward 9 months and I decided I wanted a 3rd cat. A kitten, as young as I could possibly find. Low and behold, there's "Oreo" set-up in the same location as before. The now nearly two-year-old cat has been in foster with this lady since he was 8 weeks old and no one had taken him. I was shocked. How had no one snatched this darling up? I felt like I had to talk to her about him. When he was a kitten he had an inner ear infection, he healed, but it left him with some damage to his equilibrium and now he walks around with his head tilted. Which is something that I find so endearing (I love animals with slight defects, adds character) Also, he was exactly what we were looking for. A lap cat. Needless to say I didn't hesitate to take him home this time!

Dexter is named in honor of the title character from the Showtime series Dexter. Where Dexter Morgan is quiet, anti-social and lacking of any sort of human emotions our Dexter is a complete love bug. Which is kind of ironic to us. His middle name Galleta means cookie in spanish. His Foster mom called him Oreo cause of his coloring and we wanted to honor that. Dexter is such a love-bug, but he's also the most skiddish of my cats. It's both hard to believe and completely understandable why he stayed in foster care for 18 mos. With new people and new stuff Dexter is completely neurotic. However, once he has a minute to meet you in a quiet atmosphere he'll warm right up and be your best friend. He is my snuggler, he'l let me go Elvira on him and purr the whole time. It is simply wonderful. I love my Dex and I'm so greatful to have him.
