Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
Do you want a cat that is pretty to look at, but you don't want to spend a lot of time lavishing attention and pets on it?

Or maybe you just want to know you are not the only one in the house and without having to deal with clingy company.

If this sounds like you, then Dexter is the cat for you!

Dexter is an 8 year old neutered male who has a gorgeous orange buff coat.

Save time wondering what he wants and just let him do it all himself! Dexter will come and give YOU attention by rubbing against your leg until he's had enough, then he'll walk away.
Don't even bother trying to pet him, this cat doesn't need it!

Dexter loves Temptations and Greenie treats. Instead of wasting time trying to pet him, show you love him by tossing Dexter a couple of his favorite treats. It doesn't get easier than that!

Dexter enjoys toys he can use by himself. Balls, cardboard castles, those automated little robot birds, are all great choices for him.

So if you are looking for a beautiful but low maintenance cat that doesn't like to cuddle, adopt Dexter!
