#Pawties and Events are where anipals and humans get together for a Twitterin’ good time. In their tweets they use an introductory hashtag (#) so everyone who wants to join in the fun can easily find them by searching Twitter for #(fill in the blank) pawty or #(event name). #Pawties and Events is where you will find out about the #Pawties taking place on Twitter and where I will point you to the official The Anipal Times #Pawty & Events Calendar. Remember to check out the calendar so that you can find the dates and times to mix and mingle with anipals. Now, let’s read about some of the #pawties and events that happened by the deadline for this article (oh, and if you don’t know how to #pawty, don’t worry I got you covered—just read this).
#SciFiPawty Every anipal, or space-alien anipal joined @BorisKitty on 24 March 2012, as he hosted his third annual spectacular #SciFiPawty—and Boris held nothing back, making sure that this year’s #SciFiPawty was the biggest and best(est)! All the anipals came out and donned some excellent outfits (see some the most amazing #SciFiPawty outfits here) and generally had a great time frolicking about the Twitter-verse at this out-of-the-world #pawty designed to bring joy to all and help raise awareness and funds for One By One Cat Rescue. Everyone who came out enjoyed some luscious libations and great tasty treats whipped up by @Flicka47—and shook their fuzzy (or feathery, or scaley, or well, whatever-have-you) derrieres to some rocking tunes played by some great DJs and the first Twitter-based band, Da Shibbering Cheetos (@ShibberingC). Watching the #pawty was a hoot—I sat back and took in the scene and saw anipals dressed up as Green Lantern, C3P0, tribbles, robots, monsters and flying super heros, just to name a few!
#SciFiPawty was a super fun time, and all the fun included more than the eating, drinking and dancing, @BorisKitty had some great prizes lined up too. Anipals took their chance at answering various quizzes and playing for some really great prizes—I was trying to find the dog slobber sanitizer. #Pawty goers enjoyed themselves immensely and generally just had a ball helping @BorisKitty to give this year’s #SciFiPawty charity One by One Cat Rescue, Inc., Pennsylvania, USA, big shout outs. At the time of this article being written, there was over $1,300 that was generously donated to One by One Cat Rescue, Inc., through #SciFiPawty—if you weren’t able to attend the #pawty, don’t fret, you can still donate to this great organization by clicking here. “Once again we are trying to halp out all da kitties over at One by One Cat Rescue and show everyone over der how much dey iz appreciated,” said @BorisKitty. “Dey iz a small, no-kill shelter but dey sure doz do a lot for kitties in ma area. Iffen u would like to see sum of dem sweet kitties check out ma photo album from when Human2 did go up and drop of toys and treats for dem.” I talked with a lot of anipals, and they all wanted to send their thanks to thank @BorisKitty for putting together such a pawesome and fun #pawty—so, a big “thank you, Boris!”
