Dexter came to Best Friend Animal Society a bit rough around the edges two years ago. He was in poor health and suffered from malnutrition.

The tuxedo cat was 20 years old, severely underweight. He was in desperate need of a loving home to live out his golden years.

When Jill Williams saw Dexter, it was love at first sight.

Jill, a mom of two boys and three dogs, noticed Dexter right away. She knew kittens would get adopted very quickly, and Dexter was just as deserving and capable of giving love, but none of them expected just how much love this senior cat had.

As soon as Dexter arrived in his new home, the two boys were showered by his love. Dexter nuzzled into the crooks of their necks and arms and rubbed his face and whole body up against them for hours.

"He loves to be petted and he loves to snuggle," Jill told Love Meow. "His favorite things are his wolfpack and his kids."

Dexter adores his giant wolf-sister, Flora. "They are best friends. They sleep together and snuggle all day long. Flora is 120 lbs and about 10. Dexter is now almost 22!"

Dexter looks absolutely amazing for his age. "He loves ONLY fancy feast (must be the fanciest or he'll knock it right off the table). He likes to find the sunbeams and lay in them. He likes to sleep on my human children at night and they spoil him," Jill said.

"He is very vocal and very loud!! I get up at 4:30 every morning and you better believe if I don't get him his fancy 'feast' right way he will wake up the whole house!" Jill told Love Meow.

"He eats SO much. It's so funny. His meow is very grumpy sounding, too. (He) won't leave you alone til he gets what he wants. He is the ruler of this house."
