|Showing support: #TeamTiggy avi|
If you've been around the anipal community for any length of time it's very likely that you know my good friend @TiggyBean. He's a popular Barktender at #NipClub, he runs #TiggysTavern, he's the inventor of the #TiggyTrot, and he's a wonderful anipal who's much loved by his many friends.
Tiggy hasn't always enjoyed the best of health, and recently we've had a huge scare and thought we were going to lose our pal. He had a bad reaction to the meds that he was taking for a serious heart condition and needed to spend some time at the emergency vet's. People quickly gathered on #TiggysPorch to purray for him and wait for news.
|Much-loved pal: @TiggyBean|
Thankfully the news was good. Tiggy had rallied, and is now at home.
His underlying heart condition hasn't changed, though. Tiggy is still very sick, and needs all the love and support that he can get. His anxious family need that, too, and they are glad so many pals are here for him.
Gradually the spontaneous outpouring of love and support has crystallised into #TeamTiggy, with a number of his pals adding the #TeamTiggy hashtag to their tweets and even to their Twitter profiles. There is now also a #TeamTiggy avatar, designed by @RealFakeGator and available for all of us to use.
If you know Tiggy and would like to join the team, you might like to do one or more of the following things:-
- Download the #TeamTiggy avatar above and use it as your profile pic or tweet it on your timeline;
- Add the tag #TeamTiggy to your Twitter name, e.g. my Twitter handle's @ShaynaCat & my name is currently shown as Shayna #TeamTiggy;
- Tweet good wishes to @TiggyBean & include the hashtag #TeamTiggy; and
- Spend a few moments saying a purrayer for him and his family, or send good thoughts & vibes to them.
Any encouragement that you can give to Tiggy will mean a great deal to a very kind and lovely anipal and to his anguished family. Thank you.
