This new member is of the four-legged variety.
Say hello to “Dexter.” He’s a stray taken in by a friend, who then offered him to us, as the girls had been clamoring for a “kitty cat” for a while now. A vet’s best guess is that he’s about six months old. The picture is somewhat misleading, as his color is really a smoke gray. His previous human had named him “Fifty” in honor of that Book We Shall Not Name, and there was no way that moniker was going to stick. I wanted to call him “Ghost,” but being the only dude in the house meant my vote was overruled.
So, you know…”Dexter.”
