By Danielle (24-9-2013) – From Ark on the Edge
I know how much you all enjoyed hearing about Dylan – the deaf fundraising cat for Ark on the Edge – so I thought you all would enjoy hearing what he has been up to recently.
This was his piece on our local newspaper after his appearance at Wilson’s vets.
After his popular appearance at Wilson’s vets family fun day; Dylan was then at Pets At Home the next weekend; raising awareness of obesity in animals and promoting free weight checks at the stores – HE WAS A HUGE SUCCESS! He made himself at home at the very front of the store on the mats by the door and everytime someone walked past and didn’t come to see him; he let out a roar of a meow – so that the people turned around and came into the store to see him (he knows how to work the public)
Next up was ANOTHER photoshoot for this pampered puss, who has already appeared in several cat magazines; and as you can see from the picture, he keeps himself in shape for these shoots with a spot of yoga.
Dylan also had his weigh in – he didn’t lose any weight this time – BUT he didn’t gain anything either – so that was good enough for us – to date Dylan has raised almost £200 from his sponsored slim!!!!!!
Back at home, he hasn’t been lazy either – Dylan and the gang welcomed a new attention to the household – a Manx/Maine Coon kitten called Sally who Dylan took under his wing and is showing the ropes; there was also a new foster cat; Winifred, who was extremely timid and nervous, but with slow introduction with Dylan, she has soon come around and will go up for rehoming soon; she seemed to trust the others cats in the house hold.
Dylan has also be on a coaching mission – helping his “brother” Wesley (also deaf) learn how to walk safely and comfortably on a harness – do we hear the beginning of a double act here? Watch this space to find out more.
P.S. Dylan’s P.A. and owner hasn’t had time to write an update for you all – as his Facebook page (Dylan celebrity puss) went a bit manic – Dylan is certainly gaining notoriety. So I’ve done it on her behalf
And finally – he got some time to chill out!
