When the family decided to adopt a cat at the shelter, they intended to get a young kitten that they could raise. However, their hearts were stolen by a charming old boy.

They were informed that Dexter is already 20 years old and he may never live long enough for them to get connected with the cat. However, the family understood the situation and adopted the toothless cat anyway.

Their intention is to shower Dexter all the love he deserves before his time on this earth ends.

On Dexter’s first day at his new forever home, he quickly bonded with his new human, JJ. The whole family treated the adorable boy like one of theirs and Dexter always reminded them how thankful he is for sharing their love with him.
