What a fabulous 2017 Cat Lovers Hop we had!!! Thank you to everyone who participated. I hope you realize that this is not just MY hop....it is OUR hop. I love how everyone contributes their artistic creativity and enthusiastically shares their cat tales and photos. In sharing our love of cats with each other, we are actually sharing ourselves...granting each other the high privilege of a personal glimpse and connection into our lives. I sense we have something very, very special here that I haven't really seen in other hops...and I treasure it! I hope you feel it, too.
I bet you are curious (just like those kitties in the meme at the top) about who the winners are, aren't you?

WINNERS: Please email me (jwoolbright at gmail dot com) with your name, mailing address (not needed for digital or GC prizes), and the prize you won. Please put "Winner 2017 Cat Lovers Hop" in the subject line. Thank you and congratulations!!!Thank you so very, very much for being a part of the 2017 Cat Lovers Hop. I will be honest....this is a big endeavor for me to put on. As I have said before, I am just an alley-cat variety of blogger, on no design teams ever, and organization is not my strong suit. ("Poor administrative function" is the term, I believe!! lol...) But you are all so kind and patient as I muddle along. I appreciate that!!
I want to thank those of you who have made this hop especially fun by hostessing games and giveaways on your own blogs. I am so thrilled to see others getting involved in the excitement of the Hop!
Huge thanks, also, goes to Karen Ladd and D.Ann Comer for their behind the scenes encouragement and assistance!! That means so much to me! I welcome ideas and offers of help from any of you who are so inclined.....this is OUR hop, after all!! I am already looking forward to next year....and I hope you are, too!
