LEE COUNTY, Fla.- "I think this Christmas is the best I have ever had," said Kaleb Nicolari.

Lee County Domestic Animals Services found Kaleb's new pet, Bobby, wandering the streets of Fort Myers. Thanks to Kaleb and his mom adopting the little guy Monday he's s a stray no more.

Debora Nicolari said, "We have been here, We have looked and looked in the paper and online, but nothing ever worked until today."
Christmas Eve! Debora and her son said it was meant to be. "It can go with her breathing cause she is on oxygen and this one doesn't shed as much," said Kaleb.

A christmas wish come true for the 11-year old. "I am looking froward to finally having someone around because I am an only sibling plus he seems to be playful so I can have a companion and someone to play with," he said.

"I am really grateful for my son and husband and everyone. I just wish everyone a Merry Christmas and hope they get their miracles too," said Debora.
