Our featured cat for The River's Purrfect Friday: Dexter
Here's what Dr. Jen had to say about Dexter:
Dashing Dexter is one heck of a hunk of cat! Born in January of 2003, we had taken him in initially back in January of 2005 as an Ionia County stray whose time had just about run out. Due to his winning purr-sonality and striking good looks, he quickly found himself a home with a wonderful family, where he lived for several years. But, as bad luck would have it, Dex developed some urinary issues that predisposed him to naughty behavior, and it took us awhile to diagnose what the underlying medical problem was. By that time, the family wasn't able to put up with Dexter's bathroom habits anymore, and we took him back.
Now since his re-arrival and his daily medication to diminish the bladder inflammation he is afflicted with, Dex has been nothing short of a perfect gentleman. He is SUCH a nice boy that we would love nothing more than to find him a home with someone who understands his medical condition and can treat him effectively so he stays on the straight and narrow. OK, so he himself isn't narrow, weighing in at an average of 14 pounds, but would you just look at that face - WHAT A LOOKER HE IS!

This cat has a history of Feline Idiopathic Cystitis.
