You can. You're ani-gif is just larger than "The maximum size of your custom image is 150 by 150 pixels or 195.3 KB (whichever is smaller)."

your gif is 327 kb - 300x391 so if you can scale it down then it'll work.

Damn! I've always thought that avatars had to be 150x115 and I always had to compromise with slightly squashed images then when I noticed that ChickShhh's epic win of a headphone cat was 150x150 I realized that as long as your under 2MB it's fine to be animated in 150x150
