Get Ready to PAWTY

Pugs and I want to share with you an exciting event happening on Twitter on Sunday, April 5.

Hundreds of pets will be meeting on Twitter to virtually celebrate our friend Brewskie Butt's birthday (that's him to the left), whoop it up with their pals, win prizes and raise money.

The Twitter community’s second “pawpawty” is in honor of popular Twitter cat, @brewskiebutt, who turned five on April 1.

The pawpawty is not just about fun and games, however. The event will also raise funds for my FURPOWER Donation Challenge. Thanks, Brew!

So how exactly does a party on Twitter work? Those participating in the pawpawty end their tweets with “#pawpawty.” Partiers can then follow all of the Twitter comments designated with #pawpawty using Twitter search functionality or by following this link:

The #pawpawty will run for 24 hours, from 2 p.m. EDT Sunday April 5 to 2 p.m. EDT Monday, April 6, giving animals all over the world a chance to participate. The organizers have collected more than 50 “door prizes” that they’ll be giving away throughout the party.

Each #pawpawty has a virtual location at which the animals gather. Since the real Brewskie Butt (known as the Brew) lives in the trendy Canton Arts District, his neighborhood has been chosen as the virtual location of his Birthday Pawpawty. His staff Vicki Boatright’s website, will be redesigned as a gateway to the Canton Arts District in order to introduce the world to the Brew’s community.

Interested twitterers should follow organizers: @brewskiebutt, @emmythecat, @romeothecat, @duke_richard_II, @oscarthecat and @frugaldougal for ongoing details or visit

  1. My mom hasn't gotten into Twitter yet. She says it's hard enough to keep up with facebook and the cat blog.
