Appaws Appaws Appaws.............

As you know dear pals, our dear friend Fester went OTRB recently. His mum was broken hearted and is still hurting pals. As his friends we were devastated too, we could not believe it pals. We know Fester was a very popular chap and had many, many good friends.  He was one of the kindest and loyalist of friends. It is not just us who have said this but many of his pals.  He was always there with a cheery smile, a little quip to make us laugh, lots of paw hugs when we were down. All those special #FesterSnuggles.  A true, true special friend.  So, we decided that in his honour we would name an award after him and what better than one for a special friend. So Fester is the first recipient and then it will always be referred to as The Fester Special Friend Award.  So if any of you have a special anipal friend, or special human person friend, or maybe a human person who has a special anipal friend, let us know pals and they could be receiving this very special award.  Now please bring your paws together for the wonderful Fester, we miss you pal, but we know you are still around us being that special, 
special friend.   Appaws  Appaws  Appaws.............

Hey pals it be that time again, we has got some more awards to give out. In recognition of anipals and humans who have done sumfing to help anipals in some way.  We have a campaigner for anipal welfare, two anipals who have shown massive kindness to other anipals and sadly, a posthumous award for bravery. 

The first award is "The Alfie Award for Animal Campaigning". Alfie kindly agreed to having his name on the award.  We have awarded the first one to him. He has done such amazing work to highlight the evil cruelty that some anipals endure from evil humans and the useless sentences that are passed. MORE POWER TO YOUR PAW ALFIE !!!!  YOU ARE A TOP CAMPAIGNING HERO.
The award coinsides with Alfie launching his charity, "Alfie's Law Foundation"  Please go to his website and join our fight for anipal welfare and PROPER SENTENCING FOR ANIPAL CRUELTY !!!

Alfie has written a little piece explaining how his campaign started.....

well it all started when I arrived at my forever home in April of2012 as a tiny pup only 8 weeks old. My mum set up a twitter account for me so I could make lot of new friends many of which you can see on my website. 
While we were reading tweets we noticed there were so many requests for help all around the world to stop animal cruelty & many of them were here in the UK. So mum did some research and was horrified at the amount of cruelty cases that were going on and the weak sentences that were being handed down by the Courts. That did it…we set to work on raising awareness with a petition and website to appeal to the public to support changes to legislation & sentencing for animal cruelty.
We received so much support from people & businesses alike which gave us the determination to carry on even when at times the stories of abuse were harrowing and caused us so many tears.
We are now almost at the end of our 1st year of campaigning for Alfie’s Law and the first petition ends on May 31st, BUT we are not giving in. we have gained more than 38,000 signatures so we are now ready with petition 2 in the hope of getting the 100,000 next time.
More good news is the launch of my new charity Alfie’s Law Foundation. The aim of the foundation is to carry on raising awareness of the deplorable amount of animal abuse in the UK and the lack of action to do something about this from our Government. We are also raising money to help pets that are in NEED. You can read all about the charity and our fantastic team at And also on our community Facebook page
Since the very first day of Alfie’s Law we have fought for Justice for Pets day in and day out and this will not change until we get the legislation & sentences that reflect the severity of the crimes that are inflicted on animals.

Many thanks for your continuous support for Alfie’s Law

NOW, NEXT AWARD...... Well pals, this is a very, very sad one.  We had already decided to award The Wolfie Award for Bravery to Pingu prior him going OTRB and wanted to awrd him posthumously. He was a wonderful kitty from Essex who had a lot of health problems including a liver shunt. He was one of the bravest of kitties, fought his illness with dignity right to the end. We never met him but we feel as though we know him and feel the masses amount of love that he gave to his mum, dad and brofur Sharky. His mum, dad and brofur were devastated when he passed OTRB.  But, we know that Pingu is still with them, sitting on their shoulders everyday watching over them.  We send them our deepest, warmest love and affection and hope that this will bring to the fore the condition of LIVER SHUNT KITTIES.  We will ask Pingu's mum for any links related to liver shunt kitties and add them here.  Please pals, take a moment to think about brave Pingu and other kitties who have or are suffering from the same condition. APPAWS APPAWS FOR PINGU PAL XXX
Now pals, we have another new award.  The Cold Wet Nose Day Campaign Award for Outstanding Kindness and Generosity.  This goes to Marble and Mikey.  Marble lives in the USA here is her website linky MARBLE'S WEBSITE and Mikey lives in Durham, England. Now, Mikey nomsinated Marble for this award, this is what Mikey wrote about Marble......
 I would like to nominate @marblesays for a Cold Wet Nose award. Marble is the most generous cat on Twitter and has sent boxes full of pawsome gifts to lots and lots of pals. I first met Marble when I won a quiz at a #TWCD Twitter pawty that she had organised to raise funds for @CrashsLanding shelter. I was expecting to receive a couple of toys. Instead I got a huge box of lots of @petmate products, with extra toys for me to take to the shelter I came from. I have recently got even more things when my two new brofurs
Marble's Gifts
joined my family.
Amongst other examples of generosity, Marble has done the following;
She created a great Twitter mystery when she sent an anonymous box of goodies to @SquirrelsKitty.

When @catizensmith (Wolfie) had to have his leg amputated, Marble sent him a soft carrier for his trip to the v*t, some FatCat nip toys and a very comfy beddy to help with his recovery.

Marble helped @HalfordU to surprise his #dieseldolls on Valentine's Day, sending gifts to @miaandmanu, @katkay41, @CyndiandLatte, @StellaMaybel, @melinabehney, @pollywollycat, @BeverlyAnnel & @simba_the_queen   Also in receipt of Marble boxes have been @ItsMeDeaner, @chutneysupercat and @princesstwiggyx

On behalf of everyone I would like to say a huge Thank You to Marble, for sharing her excellent #topcat work and products with us.

We also have somthing from Wolfie.........
Wolfie with his gifts from Marble & Mikey

Just before I had my operation I got a big parcel through the post from @marblesays and @Mikey_W_Cat; there was a beautiful new carrier for me to go to the v-e-t in, a whole tub of nip toys and a brand new, comfy, plush bed. They were all lovely presents and I was overwhelmed to receive them. My new beddy has made all the difference - it is the purrfect size for me and supports & cradles my shoulder just right. I am sure it has
helped in my recovery and I just love it. Since my operation I do get tired more easily so when I’m not racing round the garden or charging up and down the stairs, I can usually be found snoozing away happily in my new beddy. I cannot thank @marblesays & @Mikey_W_Cat enough for their amazingly generous gifts – they have very kind hearts and I would like to nominate them both for a Cold Wet Nose Day Award for kindness & generosity.

There you go pals, Marble is a big hearted kitty who deserves the awrd.  Amazing lady kitty.
Now, the young lad from Durham, Mikey was nomsinated by Wolfie and his family. They also supported Mikey's nomsination for Marble. Neither Marble nor Mikey knew they had been nomsinated.   Mikey is a wonderful, kind and thoughtful kitty who is only 2 yrs old but is very mature in his understanding of the plight of others. Young Mikey wrote a little profile for us, before he knew about his award.  And here it is in his own words........

I was born in a farmer’s field on 4th May 2011 and my mum was a feral cat. We ended up in a small rescue centre and it was there that I met my mum for the first time. The rescue centre is in the place where my German Shepherd sisfurs go for their holidays. I was very small when I met mum, but I walked over to her and when she picked me up I sat on her shoulder. I still ride around on her shoulder now, even though I has grown a little. I like riding around like this as I lets me be extra nosey. I even ride on my vet whenever I go visit them. My vets call me parrot cat. I like playing with water and make sure I is extra specially clean by taking showers in my water fountain. I also play fetch with scrunched up balls of paper, I think I learned this from my dogs when I was small.
So anyway I now live here, with my two German Shepherd dogs, Sophie and Ruby, and four other cats called Mr Elvis, Fat Cat Cleo, Charlie and Jasper. We all get along really well, but it does be a bit crazy when we all doing zoomies at 4am.
There you go pals, all our award recipients are heroes !!!  We love them all so very, very much. They have been added to our list of Cold Wet Nose Day Campaign heroes.  Words cannot say just how we feel about you all.  Our awards are just a little token of our appreciation and to promote certain issues.  HEROES, PALS HEROES !!!  CONCATULATIONS TO ALL OF YOU ON THIS PAGE !!!  APPAWS APPAWS !!!

Hey pals!  Welcome to our Cold Wet Nose Day Campaign Page. We are delighted to announce another award recipient. IT IS, DRUM ROLL, FANFARE......FESTER'S MUM!!!!!
Yes folks, we know that Fester's mum works with kitties and her devotion to their welfare both at work and away from work is unceasing. We were going to write a little bit about Fester's mum but we thought that we would let Fester tell you all about her and what she does...
Well pals, my mummy works for a re-homing centre which is a self supporting charity licensed by the RSPCA. She is the Cattery Supervisor. She cares for all of the abandoned/sick/mis-treated puddies that come into the centre. This can range from newborn kittens to older, frail puddies. A lot need extra special TLC and mummy and her colleagues always give 100% to ensure this happens. Once the puddies are healthy and happy again mummy goes about finding them their new forever homes. Mummy loves her job and her extended fur baby family. All my brofurs and sisfurs have come home with mummy from her work. I cannot tell you pals just how proud I am of my mum. She is the kindest, lovingest, bestest mum to all of us and we want to concatulate her on her award.

Someone has helped out at an anipal charity, raised money for an anipal charity or, maybe helped a neighbour who has anipals.  Really anything that shows humans and other anipals helping other anipals.  We want info and if pos pics. 
Now, we did say that there was an award related to TCWNDC, well, it is called The Wolfie Award for Bravery.  We asked Wolfie if he would put his name to the award and he graciously accepted. We chose 3 anipals who have been exceptionally brave recently.  Wolfie cos of his life changing operation, Marie cos she was badly attacked by evil human and Blue who was viscously attacked by a dog.  Thankfully they are all making amazing recoveries and have been so brave.  Below are copies of their awards. 
We know there are many, many other anipals who also deserve The Wolfie Award for Bravery so please pals let us know who they are and we will add them to the hall of bravery. We want to let efurryone out there know JUST HOW BRAVE ANIPALS ARE!!  So please, we have selected three, now it is over to you. No competition, just stories of bravery.
