Thankful Thursday - - Thankful for Award

Hi Pals,

I has to apologize to all my blog pals dat I hasn't been around visiting much for 2 or 3 weeks.   We has been really busy helping out with the Annual Anipal Academy Awards, which was held this past weekend.  It was the 2nd Annual Awards and bigger than last year.  It went on Friday night, Saturday afternoon and night, and again Sunday afternoon/evening.   And, while we didn't help out nearly as much as some of my pals did, we were still kept very busy with the work we did.

I'm very thankful for winning the "Sensational Cat Award".  It's a great honor.  Humbling tho because there are lots of sensational cats on Twitter and in the Blog World.  So, I'm going to accept this award in behalf of all the kitties out there.  It was truly a great event, and I hope everyone will come next year.  he he - I hear @AutumnTheDoxie (who had the dream over a year ago for the event)  already has been thinking about next year.

On Friday night @MaggieTKat kicked off the event by hosting the Anipal Achievement Awards - giving special mention to all the DJs, Barktenders, Donors of pawpawty prizes, quizzmasters, menu planners for various #pawpawtys, and many other volunteers.   It was a great event starting out by walking the Red Carpet into the theater.   
yours's truly walking the Red Carpet.

@MaggieTkat honored 125 anipals that evening.  We were all awarded with this bootiful star for our service..
Achievement Award for Serving as Barktender at parties.

So you can see pals, I has lots to be thankful for.   It was a great weekend, but very tiring.   This little kitty could barely lift a paw by Monday morning.  I almost insisted on breakfast in bed, but M said I was a real star, but I still had to get up for breakfast.   he he

I'm going to do a second Important blog post some time later on Friday or Saturday morning, so I hope you will come back to visit me then.   

Until tomorrow pals,


I've joined CokieTheCat's Thursday Blog Hop - why don't you too.   It's easy and fun.
