Happy Birthday to Dylan – One of the World’s Greatest Cats!

A Brief One from Doug Draper

Posted June 29th, 2018 on Niagara At Large

“When you’re down and troubled … you’ve got a friend.” – a few lyrics from Carole King

Our fabulous feline friend Dylan – white as snow with one eye green and the other blue – in all his glory.

I can’t let this month of June go by without saying a few words about one of my very best friends in this world.

His name is Dylan and he’s one of my all-time favourite cats, and this June he turned 19. That is all of 92 in human years, and still going strong.

Our daughter Sarah adopted Dylan into our family  when she, now in her late 20s, was still in her first years of grade school, and a lot of things – good and bad – have happened in our lives since then.

And like other people would know – people who are fortunate enough to have a cat or a dog in their lives –  the unqualified love Dylan has given back has never wavered through good times or bad.

However rough a day I may have had, Dylan is always there to jump up beside me and stare  into my eyes with a look of devotion I am not sure I always deserve. And that look, along with the soft  sound of his pure, never fails to make things better.

Happy birthday  dear buddy and hang in there. Let’s go for 20!
