Pet of the Week 

Hey folks, my name is Dexter and I'm a two year old long hair cat with fur coloration they call tick. I guess it has speckles of white, black and brown that gives me a cool look. I also have these long white whiskers that mean I have smarts, of course that could be an old wive's tale, but it sure sounds good to me. Some say I may even have Maine Coon in my bloodlines, but nothing has been proven. No matter; because to me the most important thing is that I'm a nice guy, and I sure hope you'll think so too once you meet me. Read more about him here.
