Dexter the cat spent just two years with the Williams family, but he made every moment count.

The Williams family saved Dexter from a hoarding situation in Utah, according to People. At 20, and in declining health, the black and white cat may not have seemed the ideal pet for a family with two young boys. But the cat proved to be a loving, easygoing pet, who enjoyed spending time cuddling with the boys and the family’s dogs, according to the boys’ mother, Jill Williams.
