Dylan The Fundraising Rescue cat – UPDATE — 16 Comments

  1. Hi guys I noticed a few of u interested in Dylan’s water exercises lol – I do have a pic which is going in the next update 🙂

    No he doesn’t use a treadmill – basically he does it in a regular bath lol the friction between the body and water helps to reduce the extra skin he is carrying aswell as losing pounds – same as when humans go swimming

    Hehe yes I know it sounds odd doing them in the bath but his measurements had reduced at his last weigh in lol xxx

  2. What a fabulous blog and photos thanks Danielle I loved this.
    I’ve been a fan of Dylans since I first read about him here and its so good to hear his news.

  3. Do you walk on an underwater treadmill, Dylan? I’m curious as to why they have you exercise in water. Is it because it’s easier on your joints since you are kind of a big boy?

  4. I loved reading the update Dylan, what a clever,gorgeous cat you are and so kind to other cats that come to stay and need a bit of TLC. Have you ever had your photo taken doing your water exercising? I would love to see you doing it. Have a Merry Christmas Dylan and all your feline and human friends too, maybe you can ditch the diet for one day on the 25th.

  5. What a lovely newsy and fun packed article, I so enjoyed reading it.
    How busy you always are Dylan and kind you are also looking after the new cats who come along to the Ark.
    Walter sympathises with your diet, now Jozef too, he has put a bit of weight back on as he’s on steroids for his allergy, cutting down now and hoping he stays well. The vet said ‘He’s put a pound on’ We said ‘Oh wonderful’ because he had lost a bit before his treatment started, but he said ‘No he needs to lose it again’
    It’s a hard life for cats who love their grub and trying to please vets is impossible.
    Keep up the good work Dylan and please give my love to Danielle

    • Hehe yes Dylan is still persevering with the diet lol. He’s had to take a bit of break on fundraising to help socialise all the rescue cats at his house. The amount of work he does I have no idea why he still needs the diet – midnight raiding of the food cupboard xx

    • “We said ‘Oh wonderful'” lol! You are so much fun, Ruth.
      I went back and read your original article, as well as Danielle’s previous update. Altogether put me in a much better mood:) He is five yrs, and Chris put him on the dog harness at 3yrs. Amazing. What a solid, laid-back cat, and handsome, too!

      • Thanks Caroline, well you can imagine how pleased we were that Jo had put a bit of weight back on, but soon got deflated lol
        Yes isn’t Dylan amazing! The first time we met him at the vet’s charity stalls day he was so laid back it was incredible, I fell in love that day 😉

  6. yay – this made my day already 🙂 Dylan sounds like a great cat – very cool in social and busy situations. I have no doubt at all that he has helped bring alot of attention to cats in need – he seems to be very good with children which is super for parents as well. What a great guy.

    • I call cats like Dylan “ambassador cats” – they are able to keep other nervous cats feeling calm and they can make a group of cats who get on badly alot more calm. They seem to have a good effect socially on other cats and humans too.

      • Nice point. A solid, sensible, cat that has a calm character creates a calming ambiance around him/her. I think you are right. That may be one reason why therapy cats are good at improving the mood of hospital patients and other ill people.

        • So glad u liked the story – sorry it’s been a while – been manic at the centre to say the least. I think people are often surprised how laid back Dylan is.
          He’s so good with children he doesn’t move an inch when they touch him; as if he knows to say still around the young ones ans he just goes walking up to people xx
