Skills: he comes when called even if when he sees the toothbrush, i swear he understands everything you say to him, he sits on command, he gives paw
Arrival Story: Dexter was a fluke. Originally I wanted to get a sphynx but I found out that they can not be an only cat, because they are very social and would suffer when alone. So I asked my husband if we can have two cats. He said absolutely not. Lets just get one, normal and furry one. He was never a cat person and he couldn't understand why i would force him to live with a cat..and never mind a cat, but a "weird" looking one. I was set though...I wanted my sphynxie.
So the right time came, and my husband really wanted a full HD big screen TV...(this is where my negotiation skills came in) and I let him buy one only if I could have two cats. So the same day, with the TV still in our trunk we went to a local pet store looking for "normal" kittens. Our luck didn't hold as they didn't have any. As we were getting into our car to drive to another pet store it hit me!
Why are we going to pet stores when there are hundreds of cats in a Humane Society that need homes. So off we went to the shelter.
There were litteraly hundreds of cats. It was so sad. Our hearts were breaking. We wanted to take them all. So finally after an hour of looking we spotted Dexter (named Smudge at the time). He was being groomed at the time and he was so sweet and friendly that we knew he was what we were looking for. I decided not to get a kitten, because they are the first to go, so we figured it would be better to help out an older kitty. Dexter is not old, but he sure is not a tiny baby kitten. By the time we went to get the application form, the guy at the desk told us they were closing and adoptions were finished for the day. I was so sad, after driving so far, looking for so long we were being turned down. They told us to come back the next day. I was really worried that someone would take Dexter before we got to him. We were already smitten by him. We had no choice but to go home and hope he would still be there tomorrow. We made plans to go after my husband got home from work. In the meantime during the day I went out to shop and prepare for our new arrival. When I met my husband to go to the shelter, he was already holding a box with DEXTER in it. I was so shocked. So what my husband did was took half the day off and went to pick up Dexter. He wanted to surprise me . I was soooo happy. So that is the story of how Dexter came to be a part of our family. And now he definately is not just the buddy cat for our sphynx, but the Alpha male sweet boy we would not trade for anything in the world.
Whoo hoo!! Ok so I'm definately not in the mood for crying today!

1. I don't like to be held. I do love to be petted and close to my pawrents.
2. I love my morning soft food breakfast and I yell at the top of my lungs till I get it.
3. I love daddy best! Mommy hugs and kisses me too much, so I avoid contact as much as possible.
4. I hate when Kyro wants to play and I don't. I bit his tail not too long ago to let him know that.
5. I am not big on toys although I will swat at it if severely provoked.
I will tag 5 kitties now to post the same in their diaries:
