But the most exciting part of my week was attending a wild party with all my twitter anipals on #pussycatisland. It was 24 hours of non-stop action planned by my pals @babypatches, @rumblepurr, and @petiethecat. Twitter animals donned their best island gear (check out the swimsuits mama found for us!) to gather for games with awesome prizes, dancing to cool tunes from DJs, and drinks from a famous bartender (psst...it was me!).

It was Mugsy's pawty, so he got the first bite
It was such a delicious cake! Mugsy & I think there might be more hiding somewhere... Mama tried a bite of cake & said it was yummy, but she couldn't convince my boy kid to try dog cake (*snickering*)
Happy birthday, Mugsy! And yummy thanks to my twitter pal @LaineysPawtique for making such a delicious cake.

The origin of #pussycatisland : my beloved brother @inigoflufflebum was trying to ship me off the other day ’cause I was chasing his tail. @BabyPatches was having the same problems with her brofur and sisfur… so we decided to take action and go to the amazing pussycat-island!
Details are: our lovely ship departs from it’s Twitter dock on Sunday at 10am New Zealand time (so that will be Saturday for most of you 3pm PST, 5pm CST, 6pm EST) We’ll hang out on the island and frolic in the sun till 8am (1pm PST, 3pm CST, 4pm EST) the next day so that everyone will have a chance to pawty! The amazing Hunkerbell (@Wildboutbirds) is also going to be running a ship as are the fantastic pups @scruffypebbles
What’s on the island: There will be lots of nip-based drinks, sun puddles, tuna fishies (but no eating @copious_tuna - he off limits) dancing and fun! For the doggies, there is a special Doggie Sandbar that will have steaks, rubber balls, Frisbees and dancing fun! For the bears, we have honey and for the bunnies we have carrots! We also has cheerios and brocolli for little gerbils. Everyone is welcome!
Fundraising on the island: @SylvieDog (that's me!) is running a fundraiser for one of the largest animal shelters in the country. Please donate to help her reach her goal, thank you! You can donate here: http://www.firstgiving.com/sylviedog
What to wear: Island wear! @BabyPatches has a lovely look at the moment (as she always does… hubba hubba!)
What we need: Bartenders and DJ’s! If you’re interested in doing a shift, DM @rumblepurr and any other help is totally welcome! This will be a fun day for all! And we could always use more prizes! So let me know if you can donate.
Many thanks to: @Petiethecat and @just4pets (who happens to be Baby Patches momma) who has offered to donate some prizes, @Brewskiebutt and @BabyPatches for getting the word out via bloggy goodness, @PerrytheBirman for just being a cool cat in his island hat! And thank you to @SylvieDog who has volunteered to serve drinks at the pawty!
p.s. I'm studying up so I can make some fancy tropical drinks!

Papa adopted me from Orphans of the Storm in Riverwoods when I was about 2 years old. He picked me because I was the only dog in the shelter who wasn't barking. When he passed by my pen, I put my paw up on the fence to say hello. He knew right away that I was the dog for him. I've been with Papa now for 9 years, and we've been through a lot together. I always took care of him when he was feeling sad, and he always gives me tummy rubs when I demand them.
Seven years ago, Papa went out of town and left me at my pal Toby's house. Toby's mama had a friend from work over for dinner while I was there, and she was pretty great. I cuddled up next to her on the couch, and then laid my head in her lap and fell asleep (she claims I started snoring, but I doubt that).
Turns out that friend worked with Papa and was friends with him. Six years ago, she came over to Papa's house to hang out as buddies. I recognized her right away and was so excited! I knew this was my chance to get a Mama. I sat between them on the couch and demanded they both rub my tummy. Their hands touched, and they realized they could be more than pals. They got married a year later and then I had a full family.
I met Mama's son when he was 4 years old. He wasn't sure what to think about me in the beginning, so I just sat quietly next to him. After awhile he started to pat me on the head every so often. I always smiled and wagged my tail, and he'd giggle. Now my boy is 9 years old and he loves me so much that he gives me cookies and lets me sleep on his bed.
Life was pretty fabulous until January 5, 2007. For some reason, Mama & Papa decided I needed a friend to play with. And that's the day they brought Mugsy home. I was excited at first, because he was a hound dog like me. But then I realized that he didn't know anything about being a good dog. He did his business all over the floor, and he whined and barked a lot. So embarrassing. It took a lot of hard work, but I've finally taught him how to be a good boy. Don't tell anybody, but now he's my best friend. He even taught me how to twitter (although now I'm much better at it than he is).
