Once in the family, kittens become a big part of it, because their average life expectancy is 12-18 years. But, as among humans, there are special long-livers who can be with you for more than 20 years. And we have a wonderful story as proof of this miracle. Dexter was already 20 years old when he got a new home. The family came to the animal shelter planning to take in a cute baby cat, but it was the adult cat Dexter who won their hearts.
Despite the fact that most of his life was behind them — the family took the opportunity to offer this miracle a new home. So the old and toothless cat got a new family and was warmly welcomed by all its members. And in a day Dexter became firmly and firmly friends with the boy, they had an invisible connection. The boy decided that he should take care of the cat: it was in his arms that the cat could sleep in a ball for hours, rubbing against him and purring at the same time.
Dexter is an incredible lucky dog, as his old age is not the cage of a shelter, but the great company of a loving family. He has found a common language not only with people, but also with other animals in the house. According to his owners, he is a cat with a temperament, because if he wants something, he will get it… even if he urgently needed a snack at 4 in the morning.
Dexter has had a wonderful old age — in care and love, something many can only dream of in his shoes.
Two years after the events described, Dexter was gone, but there is a wonderful saying about it: Don’t cry because it’s gone. Smile because it was!»
Everyone and everything deserves a chance! If you have the opportunity, give that chance and be sure to get a lot more in return!
