"We brought Dewey home (now named Dexter) on Saturday, and less than a week later he has made himself at home. The other cats are coming around to him quicker than we had hoped and he is a great cuddler during movies on a rainy day! He was just what we were looking for. Thanks to your staff for all their help and patience as we wandered the cat rooms for over an hour trying to pick."
