While many people seek to adopt a pet while she is still young, this loving family adopted a 20-year-old cat named Dexter in order to give her all the love she deserved in her final years of life, and as a result, this cat was very happy and certainly left an irreplaceable place in her family’s hearts after her departure.
It all started when Jill Williams, a Best Friends Animal Society member, got an email needing urgent transit homes for cats.
The woman, who has a husband, four dogs, and two children who are eager to have a cat, was unsure how it would work out to add a new member to the family and more in the case of a feline.
According to Jill Williams:
“We were very convinced that even if we took in a homeless cat, even if just temporarily, we’d have to keep them apart.”
“We had no clue how our dogs would react to a feline family member.”Jill went to the shelter and saw a big number of cats searching for a home. At the time, the woman was thinking about adopting a tiny cat, but instead encountered an elderly toothless cat named Dexter who absolutely won her heart.
Dexter’s departure was incredibly sad and difficult for the family, especially for the children and Flora, but this cat had real love in his last two years of life, which is immensely reassuring.
