Chatty Cats: All About Dexter

Happy Friday! We celebrated Dexter’s 13th Gotcha Day on Tuesday this week. We found him in 2010 as a stray kitten, and he’s a handsome mancat now! Also, I can now update you on his recent tummy troubles. Dexter has been officially diagnosed with IBD. We’ve started him on a diet change, so we’re hoping that clears things up. He’ll return for another ultrasound in a few months to check his progress. Thank you for all the well wishes for Dexter. We hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Dexter’s Gotcha Day Video

I shared this video on social media on Tuesday. Thought I’d share it here as well.

The Week in Photos

The boys looked out the window. I stood up too late to see what they were looking at, but my guess is the neighborhood cat Tux (yes, he’s a tuxedo cat).

Olive hugged Dexter. (Not sure if you can tell that she has both arms around him.)

Sophie ignored Dexter as he no doubt told her something important.

  4. Happy 13th Gotcha Day Dexter!!! I am glad it’s IBD….had Cody lived, we found out AFTER his sudden passing that he had IBD…….(he was also 13, remember he didn’t pass from that, he passed from a botched surgery to explore to see what he had so don’t worry!) xoxo

  5. Happy Gotcha Day, Dexter. Now you have a definite diagnosis I hope the IBD can soon be brought under control.

  6. Happy Gotcha Day Dexter!! I hope your GI issues won’t be bothering you after your diet change (Connor has IBD also and switching his diet and adding a small amount of Budesonide daily has addressed his symptoms).
