2010 Most Kind Hearted

Hello there friends.  I want to thank those who nominated me and voted for me as “Most Kind Hearted”.  It came as quite a shock to me when I heard I had been nominated and I am honored to share this award with my dear friend @Mariodacat.  Thank you to all who put together the Anipal Academy Awards.  Your hard work and dedication really showed throughout the entire event.  It was am amazing event.  Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart.  P.S. I think we should have a “Biggest Flirt” category next year.  I think I have a good shot at winning that award. Again, Thank you all.

2010 Anipal's Choice Favourite Blog

"My Lords, Ladies, Gentlemen, Cats, and I suppose I have to include dogs, apart from that nasty little Jack Russell that lives next door, unaccustomed as I am to public speaking, let me say that the award is a well deserved recognition for the pearls of wisdom that I regularly bestow upon you lot. 
"To keep in their good books, I must thank the Academy for recognizing great literary talent like what I've got. At this stage, I should also offer thanks to others who have helped make this moment possible, but I can't think of any. A passing mention is in order to the one I don't trust for the occasional prawn, and for the pretty one for keeping him in order. As for my poncy brother and stupid sister, I just hope they realise how lucky they are to have me looking after them. 
"Finally, a big thank you to all my readers for their loyal support - all three of you. To finish, I accept this belated and thoroughly merited award with all the modesty you would expect from a superstar like what I am. You make me feel very humble - whatever that means. Good night and God bless"

There are more pictures, and a full description of the momentous occasion on Albert's blog:

2010 Best Props Department

I'd like to thank the Academy for this beautiful Award! It's perfect for scratching that place on my cheeks that just always seems to need attention and looks great on mom's desk above the computer. I must also thank Dad, since he is the Prop Master; Mama, my director; cat behaviourist Jackson Galaxy for recommending "Da Bird," even/especially for older guys like me; and finally GO-CAT Feather Toys at for inventing "Da Bird!"

Thank you!!!  
Cokie the Cat

2010 Coolest Human

OHMYGOSH!! I am so honored to be chosen the Coolest Human by the Anipal Academy. It's so special to me to have been selected by the anipal community!
But every human that was nominated is the 'coolest human' because all of them are involved in the Anipal Community in some way.
All my anipals are very special and important to me. I want you all happy and healthy. Which is why I maintain the #pawcircle blog and I tweet #pawcircle so much. I hope that this is a place and service where friends can find the anipals that need our good thoughts and anipals can find solace and know they are cared about.
The anipal community has become my family and with all of you I share my cycling/running/sporty activities.
I was so glad to be able to share my trip to Italy with all of you through the photos I tweeted. And if there are any out there that didn't get to see them (beware! there are lots!) let me know! LOL
My involvement in the anipal community is very important to me and I am so honored to be a part of it, let alone win an award!
Thank you all so much!

2010 Most Kind Hearted

WOW, I’m still quite overwhelmed from co-winning the “Most Kind Hearted” award this weekend at the AnnualAnipalAcademyAwards show.  I’d like to thank the Academy for even nominating me. That is quite an honor for a little kitty just to be nominated. 
I’m thrilled that @ForeverGinger also won because I felt she should have taken it hands (or paws) down.  If ever anyone was deserving of this honor, it’s Ginger.  In fact, all of the Nominees are very deserving.  So, I’m accepting this award with great pride and on behalf of all the Nominees – they are all winners in my book!!  You all ROCK!

Acceptance Video at:  

2010 Worst Purrformance in a video Winner

Meowzers!  My very own Acceptance Speech! [Person, you taking dictation?] 

*clears throat* (pause) *runs through a few test yowls to warm up voice*  MIMIMIMIMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII! 
*taps mike* (Person: Ryker, stop it. That really gets on the audio tech's nerves. Trust me on this.)
*glares at Person* (pause) *turns back on Person and studiously IGNORES her* (Sighhhh...good help, SO hard to find these days!)


"Thanks you, thanks you... it's such an honor to be recognized for such an achievement. People think it's easy to win the title, "Worst Purrformance in a Video," but let me tell you, it's taken many long, difficult months' worth of rigorous training and refinement to achieve such a coveted goal!

I have to thank @Allie_Kitti for being my inspiration. She was always there (always, incessantly, omnipresently, ANNOYINGLY there) biting, clawing, pouncing and stalking me...driving me to the height of perfection.
*bows to Allie...from a respectful distance* I think it's fair to say, Allie, that without you there would be no Anipal Academy Award for this Tonk!

To the Academy, who had the Good Taste to see through the surface yowls to the tormented soul that lay beneath such a memorable diatribe and recognize my Star Qualities....I thank you, one and all.

And finally, to my Person. Without your catering to my every whim, indulging me shamelessly and basically spoiling me beyond rotten, I would never have developed such a demanding yowl.  For all the (many) days you worked late and I greeted you with an affronted wail (at the top of my lungs)... for all the occasions where I tested your response time by demanding treats at 120 decibels (whaddaya mean, that's the threshold of pain? Humans. SUCH wimps. Rilly.) ...
I humbly thank you.

Hark! Is that my Agent calling? Must run, my Adoring Fans await...."

<<<>>>> ooooooh! *squeal!* SPOTLIGHTS! Paparazzi! Just what a Girl NEEDS to feel Special and GLAM! *bats eyes and arranges pink toenails for optimum camera angle* Is this my best side, Dame? Is it? Is it? *giggle* 

What? They're not here for MEEEE? This is all for Ryker?!?!? ooooooooooooohhhhhhh.... <<<<>>>>

[Ryker's Person here:  sorry guys, interview's over, gotta go avert- *CRASH! HISS! YOWWWWWWL!* ....disaster.... ]

Thanks Anipal Community for a Smashing Success!

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 )

and now a recap of this years big winners!

Here's the BEST way to watch to Anipal Academy Awards Show!!!!!

As you know, the Anipal Academy Awards Ceremony will take place during the July 17th PawPawty. Most of you already  know that Pawty's work best on TweetGrid or TweetDeck.  These Twitter client programs let you search for specific hashtags and Pawty with Anipals you don't normally follow and would not see on your twitter timeline.

We have produced our Awards Ceremony to fit into pawpawty with a SEPERATE hashtag which will allow comments by the Master's of Ceremonies, the Awards Presenters, and accompanying photos and video to play in a sperate dialog box, while anipals still pawty in the normal way at the same time.

For those of you who already use TweetDeck or TweetGrid here's the hashtags you should keep active: #pawpawty   AND  #aaac.  Search both these hashtags and you will be Pawtying your tail off in no time.

We do ask that you dont use the #aaac hastag on your tweets, and try to remove it from retweets. Please. Thanks.

For those of you new to TweetGrid here's a quick tutorial.  Go to Http:// then when you are there, click on the Tab that reads  1 by 3. This will open three windows on your screen. On the top of each window is a dialog box you can enter text into. On the FAR LEFT one, enter the word pawpawty and click on search. This will show you EVERYONE that is pawtying.

In the MIDDLE BOX enter the letters aaac and this will be the screen where you watch the ceremony unfold.

In the RIGHT BOX enter your twitter name without the "@". For example, I would type TheNascarKitty. This will be your quick reference box, where you can see Tweets directed at you.

ABOVE the three boxes there is a Dialog box where you can enter your email Username and Login, and also the hashtag pawpawty. When you tweet from this box it automatically adds that Pawty hashtag.

It's pretty easy. But if you are nervous why not practice early , like at #NipClub on Friday night. (see schedule below).

AnipalAcademyAwards/Pawpawty/NipClub Schedule: July 16 and 17, 2010
JULY 16th Friday:
#NipClub opens at 2 pm EDT (US) Dancing, music, and of course the Red Carpet fashion show to show off your swanky pawty attire to our Runway PawParazzi .

Around 7 pm MaggieTKat will begin presenting special honors and awards to Anipal Authors and Artists.   Throughout the night we will give out a LOT of fun awards to anipals too.

The #nipclub pawty will continue until Midnight.

JULY 17th Saturday:
2:00 pm (EDT) Pawpawty starts. Dance, Pawty, and spend more time walking the red carpet showing off. 

4:00pm : The Awards Ceremony begins with the winners of the Photo/video contest being announced, followed by a Tune by the Shibbering Cheetos. Right after the Cheetos, we will give away the 13 main awards, and a few special surprise honors. 

6:00pm: Shibbering Cheetos CONCERT!!!!! 

7:00pm: PepiSmartDog presents the program honoring our OVER THE RAINBOW BRIDGE friends. This will last an hour. 

Spend the rest of the weekend pawtying your tail off. 

Dont forget to visit @JavaTheCat's Zazzle Store for souvenir t-shirts, hats, bags, etc. and please donate to the Charity which funds Animal Cancer Research.

And Most of all: HAVE FUN!!!!!!!!

Exciting News!!!!!

Hi fans. Thanks for the huge swell of support for this years AnipalAcademyAwards.

I'd like to spend a few moments talking about the nominating process we used this year.

After we decided we could really do this, myself, @AutumnTheDoxie (EventChair Doggy) and @SeattleP (Jeego- Adminstrative Executive and Event Co-Chair) picked some anipals we knew had a lot of knowledge of other anipals, and great creativity. After a long online conference we had picked our categories, seperated into three committees and all went to start researching who to nominate by spending hours watching interactions at Pawty's, on Twitter etc.

Because we know that there are so many of you out there that deserve nominations, we also decided that each catagory needed a "Write-In Vote" section.

The Nominating committees are:
For Kittehs:
SeattleP (committee chair)

For Doggys:
AutumnTheDoxie (committee Chair)

For OTHERS (includes all non-dog/kitteh species-andstuffed anipals)
BunnyJeanCook (committee Chair)

There will also be a Rainbow Bridge segment of awards, and we are just letting PepiSmartDog run wild with that, helping him where we can.

This year we are adding three new catagories that will be Anipal Choice Awards with no nominees, just public voting!!!!

AND next year we will start sooner and have open voting polls to find nominees for ALL categories. Then another vote for the winner.

And now it's up to YOU!!!
In the next few days we will be done with our nomination process and announce all the nominees. THEN it is up to ALL of you anipals to go to the VOTING SITE we will announce and pick the winners!!

The Winners will be announced at the huge Anipal Academy Awards Ceremony Pawty held on TweetGrid with celebrity guests, Audio-Visual , etc. INCLUDING a Pre-Ceremony "GreenCarpet" show to show off your formal wear (Please refer back to the info blog by RosieAndCheeton on dressing for the show) AND a huge AFTERPAWTY with a concert by the Shibbering Cheetos, fine food and drink, DJ's, and a Charity Site to donate to ANIMAL CANCER RESEARCH.

The date of the ceremony is still TBD, but voting will start in the next week!!!!

Thanks to all my committee members, The Anipal Times, FrugalDougal, PepiSmartDog, and to all of you anipals who are making this event possible.

Mite we suggest yoo go with the classik monkie suit Cheeto is modeling here. My monkie suit was done by the famous designur Senor fotoshop. I’m sure many anipals will be wearing his suits and dresses this year.


If yoo don’t have Senor Fotoshop on speed-dial mite we suggest yoo go an alternate route. Rosie is modeling an owtfit from a new, up-in-coming designur named Ms. FaceinHole. She doesn’t charge and all yoo need is a jpg picture of yerself.

Last but not leest yoo can ultilize yer closet to come up with the very hottest fashions! Owr good friend @DaisyTheCat has a vary popular blog and she regularlie dresses up in fancy stuff. Here she is modeling a leapard owtfit. Please note: she has been modeling fur years so she is a pro!

Always remember, Nothing is more importunt than style….except fur food, making stinkies, getting loved by yer hyooman, sleeping and ruff-housing.

Have a grate time getting dressed up fur this spektacular event!
