AAAC Award & Serious Purring Needed

Graphics Designer Award from Anipal Academy Awards
Hi Pals,

Saturday afternoon and evening the Anipal Academy Awards Group had an appreciation/recognition ceremony to honor those in the anipal twitter group who have participated in graphics for various parties.  

Now yours truly here, has participated a couple of times in making pictures for various celebrations and parties on Twitter, but we don't hold a candle compared to some of the graphics created by some pals.  I tell you there is some excellent work out there.    We were truly honored to be included in this group of graphic designers.   M and I had fun doing it, but we are far from pros.     So thanks to the Anipal Academy Awards committee for presenting us with one of these awards too.   It is much appreciated.   

Now on to some serious business.   

One of our blogging pals needs our  purrs and prayers.  That would be Squashies over at, who has developed a tumor in her ear.   Her family is very worried about this poor little furbaby and would appreciate any purrs and pawprayers in Squashies' behalf.

Thanks pals.   I know that if the anipals on Twitter and  Blogosphere ban together, the rumbling will have to heal Squashies and make that nasy tumor run away forever.,

Don't sell yourself short, Mario! The House of Mario is my favorite design shop for Pawpawty wear. I'll have to visit Squashies. It might just be a hemotoma or allergy.
