Memories of Dexter
Dexter came into our lives November 3, 1997 and sadly made his way to Rainbow Bridge on February 6, 2016 at the age of 18 1/2. He was the best jumper! He would surprise us by waiting on TOP of doors and then reach down with his paw and touch our heads. As he aged he wasn't able to jump like that any more but he still loved to play "chase the rope" until old age took his eyesight. It was painful to watch him try and make his way around the house but I know that he was learning his way around. When his sister Chloe went to Rainbow Bridge in March of 2011 Dexter was lost. He was alone for the first time in his life. When TC and Calvin came to live with us a few months later he wasn't happy but he learned to love his two little brothers.

We miss him every day but especially when we get one of his favorite treats out of the refrigerator. He could hear the mayonnaise jar come out from anywhere in the house. He would come into the kitchen, even after his sight was gone, and wait for his special treat. It was something that I was happy to be able to do for him for all of his life.

In the end his kidneys began to fail and he started to go downhill. The only loving thing that we could do was help him on his way to the bridge with as much love and dignity as he deserved.

I can't believe that it's been a year since we said good bye to you sweet boy. A day doesn't go by that we don't think of you or mention something that you used to do. In your honor and memory we help transport kitties to their forever homes. It's just a little something that we can give back for all the happiness that you gave to us over the years.

Two years ago we had to let you go. It was one of the hardest things we've ever had to face. You were our Big Guy. We've helped 5 more kitties get to their forever homes. Things are pretty calm around here. TC and Calvin are almost 7 now. Calvin has calmed down but not much. :) We miss you and will love you forever.

Please also visit Chloe and Dennis.
