When families look to adopt a cat, often the last cat they’d choose would be a senior, much less one that’s 20 years old.
But then again, often the cat chooses you.
That’s what happened when Jill Williams and her family were looking at Best Friends Animal Society for an addition to their brood. With two small children and three dogs, the family never dreamed their perfect feline addition would be a super senior!
But, Williams couldn’t ignore the cat who was clearly interested in going home with her. “Dexter” meowed and wove in and out of Williams’ legs. He was skinny and scraggly and had a heart murmur. Plus, there was his age to consider. What 20-year-old cat would be happy in a home with two rambunctious young boys and three dogs? It turns out that Dexter would.
