This years Anipal Academy Awards Ceremony is in the books. The Red Carpet is rolled up, the auditorium is empty, the anipals are all at home relaxing. But the good feelings, camaraderie, fun, live on.
Our organization was put together to honor all Anipals and the close knit community we've become. While we enjoyed every minute of doing it, we never lost sight that it was FOR all of you and ABOUT all of you. @AutumnTheDoxie and I have so many to thank, and we will do this in a seperate dedicated blog, but our committee was first rate. We will do this every year, and next year plan to have a lot more public input into the nominees by having a multi-stage vote.
We will also continue to honor Anipals and their Humans that have special talents several times throughout the year, just like @SeattleP (Jeego) and @MaggieTKat did at the Friday night #NipClub special Red Carpet Pre-Pawty.
Most of all we'd like to thank you for the donations to our Charity for Animal Cancer Research. We hit 130% of our goal, and because of an anonymous benefactor at the Research Institute, our donations will receive matching funds, so, in effect we raised over $2600 for animal cancer research. Thank you all!!!!!
So many of our friends suffer from cancer and related illnesses, @MulderCat for example, and @BuzzLucas who has been spared because of treatments developed through research. And so many have moved on to Rainbow Bridge because of this disease. My own brofur @_Bill_The_Cat and my lovely lady @DCKitty and so many more. It's an Honor and tribute to these great friends that we can help fund ending this horrible disease. Thanks so much for helping.
I love you all,
Tiger Tommy ( @TheNascarKitty )
