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)

Roll Up, Roll Up
Roll Up, Roll Up

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.

Nothing like a spot of yoga to keep yourself in shape - Dylan.

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.

Dylan's brother Wesley getting to try out the harness. Of course Dylan was on hand for moral support.

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!

  1. I think Dylan has the most appealing face I also think he appears to be the very tiniest bit cross eyed which is very cute 🙂 He is a wonderful sociable cat who seems to just love his life!

    • Rudolph, I’d like you to find a person in Mumbai who looks after a domestic cat and interview them for PoC 😉 Please.

      I am very interested in the Indian way of life and their relationship with the domestic cat.

      • Michael, suddenly cats have become popular in India and recently a Hindi film “GRAND MASTI” had a “Traditional Persian cat’ as its main poster advertisement.I saw the film just because of the cat and was sad to see the cat used in a negative role , a bit of “Cat Bashing” in a sexually explicit adult comedy film.In a recent ongoing telivision serial a “Eunuch” is shown having a black cat as a pet, akin to the arch James.Bond villain having a traditional persian cat as a pet.Cats are portrayed as sexual comedy or as evil in recent Hindi films and television. As for cat owners, there are numerous owners but the most prominent on “Facebook” is “Pamy Persians” owned by a lady based in Bangalore. She breeds expensive ultra-faced Persian cats and i had contacted her through phone during the process of setting up a “CAT CLUB” in India.Efforts led to the formation of the “Indian Cat club” affiliated to “World cat club” of Germany but strangely, she later boycotted the club.Reasons unknown.
        This is her contact details :- H A L 2 nd Stage, Bangalore, India 560008
        Mon – Sun: 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
        Contact Info
        Phone 094 48 487500
        Email pamyspersians@gmail.com .This is her address & E-mail. Try phoning her as i did or a e-mail.She was also once a cat judge so definitely the real cat authority among Indian cat owners.

        • As you say the fact that the film used a Persian cat as part of a poster advertisement indicates that the cat is here to stay in India. Great.

          Thank you so much, Rudolph, for Pamy’s details. I’ll email her and see if she’ll do an email interview. I hope so.
