One of the activities on MewYear was carbide shooting. This is done with a milk can supplied by Kaelin where a small hole is drilled in the bottom, carbide which is supplied by Sonny pup and plastic garbage bags and an suspension strap which is supplied by Nikoshi.
Carbide shooting: an small amount of carbide is put in the milk can. Then water is added into the milk can to cause a chemic reaction with the carbide creating an synthetic gas called acetylene which is unstable and highly flammable. The top of the can is sealed by an plastic bag and a strap. The can is placed stable on its side and the gas gets ignited with a torch trough the small hole in the bottom of the can. The result: the ignition of the gas creates high pressure causing the plastic to rip or blown off with a loud bang!

- Blizzard the Mouse and Charly the cyote was performed by o kill
- Gourmet the fluffy(fat)cat and Manse the raccoon were performed by Gwyndolium
People who aided on the show:
Not everything went perfect and as planned. Little accidents occurred like curtains being stuck or operated at the wrong moments (which has been described as hilarious). Eddard the owl had trouble at times finding his way trough the curtain. And because they had only a few hand microphone some difficult situations occurred like puppeteering with two pawpets while missing a third arm to hold the microphone.
But nonetheless the Puppeteers and also the audience had a good time and some laughs, and thus the pawpet show was a small success
The fireworks was mostly taken care of by Nekotorisha the brand was "pro line" he used some additional fuse to link some fireworks together. He was using a big cigar for igniting it oldstyle. Tigerpawz and McPooch also brought some beautiful rockets from unknown brand.
The organizer of the event is Tjikko, but his friends help out making MewYear to what it is now.
