Dex

L to R. Buddy, Dexter, and Milo.


I hate to start the week off with a sad post, but April is almost over and this month marks one year since I had to put my sweet little Dexter to sleep. Dex was only 1.5 and had Feline infectious peritonitis (FIP), which is a fatal disease that affects cats. Berkley is doing research on FIP. Click here to learn more.

Dex was a loving, mischievous little guy who contracted FIP before we found him (he was found in my mom's front yard). While losing any pet is difficult, this was an especially painful loss because he was so young.

I miss you, sweet little Dexterpants. xo

  1. I adore photographs of cats. I just adore cats, really. Sorry you had to lose one so long... they really do become part of the family. I have had fifteen cats in my lifetime and the only negative is that they have to go some day :(

  4. I love my pets dearly and the thought of losing them breaks my heart. I feel your pain. They are more than just a pet, they are your best friend. I love that you said "Dexterpants" my husband added 'pants' to the nicknames of our dogs, as well as me too.
