About a month ago we had to say goodbye to an old friend, our cat Dexter. He was with us for 17 years. Admittedly dexter had social issues and did not accept (OK read that as went ballistic with strangers) many people besides my wife and I. Very few made it into Dexter's inner circle. However he loved us unconditionally. We could count on him to be waiting for us at the door at the end of the day. During the evening TV or reading hours he would settle on my lap and pur. When we slept he spent most of night curled up on my wife. She complained that he slept like a lead weight. It is funny we miss everything now even the things that annoyed us all the time.
You were a good cat Dexter. We miss you everyday!
