DYLAN'S HOME SWEET HOME!










Dylan is home! I slept on the couch again and heard the most wonderful yowling at the patio door at 4:40 this morning! I went to sleep hoping that I would see him first thing in the morning and it certainly was first thing!

He came home without the leash and collar -- but that's fine! I'm happy he was able to wriggle out of it, because the thought of him trailing that leash and getting tangled really worried me.

He seems none the worse for wear and was voraciously hungry! It was a joy to watch him chow down as he made the rounds of the various types of cat food I put out. And of course he wanted treats, too!

Dante seemed happy to see him as well, and was busily sniffing his butt in welcome! Domino didn't care one way or the other (but then Dylan has been known to attack her).

Anyway, the world is right again and it's a bright, sunny day! And thank you all for the purrs, prayers and pawsitive vibes that I'm sure had a big part in helping Dylan find his way home.

These pictures aren't from this morning, but they do show Dylan reuniting with Dante after a little outing, and then trying to claw his way through the screen door (but getting stuck instead)!

I'm so happy that I still have my 3-Ds furmily unit, and we look forward to sharing our future with all of you on the blogosphere! Thanks once again to efurryone out there!

Ah, don't you just love a happy ending!

This is very good news! Me and my Mom are very happy and relieved that Dylan found his way back home. He may have gotten his leash stuck on something and did wiggle out of the collar. Cats are good at that. Mom always had "break-away" collars for us and we lost them on a regular basis.

Parker said...

You've made my day! I am so glad he's home and OK!

OK now Dylan... while everyone else is busy welcoming you home from your travels hither and yon... inquiring minds want to know: Where did you go? What did you see? Who did you meet?
All the details please...
and last, but not least: Was it worth it?

So glad your prodigal son has returned! I bet he had all sorts of interesting smells on him for the other kitties to investigate. :)

Fin said...

Yipee! Even Daddy was sending positive vibes. Hugs to all.

Angel and Kirby said...

That is the greatest news! Mom is so happy that Wendy has her 3D's all home safe and sound. She won't admit it, but she has nightmares about Dylan but he came home in every one of them!

Daisy said...

I am so glad to learn the good news! Hoooray!

When someone you love is gone and you don't know if you'll ever see them again, it must be horribly scary and worrying. I've never lost a pet but I can only imagine how you must have walked the floors.

WHOOT!! WHOOT!!

We are so glad the Bad Boy is home. This is what give Moms(and Mummas) grey hair. We too, have been through both outcomes, and if I had a tail of my own, I would be waving it for you.

Love, Hisses and ([{Hugs}]) from Meepsie, Smokey and Mumma Jan

Welcome home Dylan, don't ever do dat again!

Cat Street Boyz said...

We are so happy Dylan came home! Mommy said this a long time ago, that young children and pets should have tracking devices so they can be found quickly when lost. Chips are a good thing but unfortunately most people don't pay attention to a wondering cat as they do for dogs. Welcome home Dylan!!!=^Y^=the Cat Street Boyz

Hooray, hooray, hooray! We're all so glad Dylan managed to escape his collar and leash and come home. What an exciting morning.

Milo, Alfie and our Mom said...

Tell him not to do it again!!!! Phew! Then give him smooches from us!

Yay! Glad you are back home Dylan. I went outside for a minute last night, but mum noticed the door open really quick and I was just out side sniffing things, she scooped me up and brought me back in.

Oh how wonderful! Your comment sent me over here right away. Yesterday was the first time I had visited your blog. I was immediately worried for your Dylan. There is nothing so scary as loosing one of your babys. I had one escape into the back yard and was hiding for 2 days. I know the feelings, intense fear and then total relief. I'm so very happy for you. I bet this winter when all the leaves are gone again, you find that halter and leash :)

Cory said...

YAY!!! We are so relieved!!!! That is the best news!

That's so wonderful! We wonder what he's going to do to get out of da vet appointment this week! Da biped says you might want to try a king sized pillow case to transport him in instead of da cage. Da biped had one dat she put a string tie on and used it all the time. Her vet said dat it was soothing yet secure.

That is wonderful news!

We are so happy that Dylan is home safe! Great news!

Oh, I'm so happy to hear that! I heard about the story after the fact - because I had a busy weekend, I shut off email from Kittyworld for a couple days - so I heard the entire story in retrospect. OMG, how worried you must have been...and I know what a joy it was to hear him calling you at the patio door. Such a relief! My Tinkerbell was lost for all of 15 minutes on Saturday, but that didn't stop me from being frantic as I beat my bushes and the neighbors' bushes as well! Hugs and kisses to Dylan - it's such a comfort to hear that loving purr again!
