George is rightly concerned about #baboonpawty taking place so close to #NipClub Monthly's African Safari pawty and the impact it will have on fundraising. Fundraising has been pretty anemic as it is (times are hard for everyone) and this sort of thing doesn't help.

> As you probably know, the #baboonpawty with an African theme is the week before the #Nipclub Monthly (NCM) African Safari. While I plan on coming to #baboonpawty myself and think it will be fun, the close timing of the two pawties has brought up a couple of things for NCM going forward.
> Periodically, with the large number of anipal pawties occurring, sometimes different pawties may have very similar themes. I feel that it's fine for anipal groups, including NCM, to have pawties with themes of their choice for their own purposes and goals. I also feel that trying to avoid scheduling similarly themed pawties close together, as much as possible, will help the goals of both pawties by avoiding theme burn-out.
> I wasn't aware of the #baboonpawty planning when we set the June pawty theme back at the end of April, or I would have confirmed a different month for our African Safari. We will make an extra effort here at NCM to avoid scheduling similarly themed pawties close together in the future as much as possible. Major holidays may not be possible, and that's understandable. I hope you will all help with that by letting me and Mattie know of upcoming pawty themes others are having as soon as you find out about them. In turn, we're adding our theme information to the AT Events Calendar generally 2 to 3 months in advance so that anyone an see it, and of course, we're happy to answer questions about it any time.
> The ultimate goal of #Nipclub Monthly is to raise funds for animal charity while having fun. As a group, we do this by creating interesting graphics, avatars, menus, games, etc. that our staff can use for and at our pawties so that people are attracted to the pawties. The more interest there is in the pawty and the larger the attendance, the better the chance is of getting more donations to help animals. At this point, there are many pawties of all kinds in the anipal community in any given month. One significant thing that sets us apart to help reach our goal of helping our animal charity is our unique creativity.
> With this in mind, I have a couple of requests. I ask that when NCM staff are planning other pawties that occur prior to the NCM theme, they refrain from using the original resources created for NCM such as graphics, avatars, and the like for other pawties. Doing so lowers the uniqueness of NCM pawties and has the potential to lower interest and therefore donations. After the NCM pawty, reusing the graphics and other creative items is possible depending on the circumstances. We all like to share as much as we can. Just ask, as sometimes the creators ask us not to use them for anything else. Please also refrain from recruiting for other pawties while using the #nipclub hashtag. It can confuse people about what groups are throwing what pawties and what the purposes of those pawties might be.

What to wear for the Shower/Bachelor Pawty & Gift Ideas

Hi Friends,

Guess everyone is wondering how to dress for the #PPPawty on Saturday.   he he - I don't even have my clothes picked out yet.  Anyway, I begged M into doing a quick post of possible ideas on what to wear.  I just happened to get a sneak preview of what Petiethecat and Pandafur are wearing.   Shhhh - don't tell anyone, but here they are in their private jet:

Now another idea might be like MaggieTKat and ParkerSKat.   Keep in mind dat the ladies will be on a shopping trip and the guys hiking in the woods for an hour.  

Now if you is still confizzled about what to wear, you can come in your natural fur too.   We just want to relax and have fun at the #PPPawty.

Now I've also been asked questions about what kind of a gift to get.   If you take a look at Pandy and Petie in the airplane, you'll see it's rather plain and blah.   Certainly lacking in color.   They could use things to jazz the place up.

Here's a couple of samples.  Shh - you know pink is Pandy's favorite color.


 Shhh again - but here's the pink throw I'm giving to Pandy.   I just don't have the blue one bought yet.  

They'll be flying around everywhere once they are married, so they will probably also need food, stuff to mix drinks with, snacks, plates to eat off, silverware to eat with, glasses -  anything else dat they might need for overnight arrangements:  sheets, blankets for guests, towels.  So pals, there's a whole bunch of ideas for you.

I'll see you all on Saturday at the #PPPawty - 3:00 EST time to 7:00 pm EST.   It's going to be so much fun, so don't miss it.

Gentlemen - A Hike In Da Woods

While da ladies is celebrating da upcoming wedding wif a shopping twip, I will be leading da men on a hiking twip in da woods!  Hiking in da Smokey Mountains is a vewy special way to see all da beauty of nature. Along da way you will likely come upon wildlife, such as da white tail deer, wild turkey, ground hog and an occasional black bear!!

So plan to join me, at 4:00pm in da lobby of da lodge, and don't worry bout getting lost in da woods cuz I gots a map! Love, FreshOtis

Shower Gifts!

The wedding party has put their heads together about what to suggest for shower presents.

Since all the anipals like going to the lake house, we need to stock the house for next year's fun. Toona, pink cups, bottle openers, anything like that us anipals consume in mass quantities. I'm sure kitchen utensils, litter and poop bags would be great presents as well.

Pandy and Petie will be spending a lot of time in their jet. I got a picture of the interior, and it looks so sad, so antiseptic. We need to glam it up a bit for Pandy's classy purrsonality.

Finally, I think Petie would like a few naughty things for the boudoir!

So find your gift and be ready to tweet it during the shower? Not able to attend? You can schedule your tweet, or dm your present URL to Maggie or Mario. They can also help you schedule your tweet if you have never done that.

Join us for fun in honor of Pandy and Petie!

We have 4 hours of great fun planned to honor Pandy and Petie in historic Gatlinburg, TN, nestled in the Smokey Mountains. We will gather by the fireplace for tunes and noms. There is a great shopping trip planned. Hiking in the woods will be led by @Fresh Otis! After all this we will relax by the pool or try the spa. Of course tunes and noms served! Finally we will see all the wonderful gifts the anipals have brought for the happy couple.

Here is the invitation:

We hope to see you there!
