Can you believe it is Day 4 already??? The Hop is halfway over and look at all our projects!! There were nearly 120 fabulous feline entries when I last checked the Linky Tool. Way to go everyone!!
Also.....I happened to notice a few extra prize opportunities being offered by some of our lovely Cat Hoppers. Alex and Becca
have something special for Hoppers who comment on their projects....and
there may be others! Thank you, gals, for making our Hop extra fun by
doing this!!! ❤ (I have not had a chance to visit very many of the projects so if
any of the rest of you have blog candy on your Cat Hop posts that you want me to announce,
please send me a note and I will add you to this list!)
I also want to extend my personal welcome to each of our first-time Cat Hoppers.....so very glad you found us!!! I hope you new Hoppers can already tell what a warm and friendly group this is. Please make yourselves at home! ❤
Important note about the Day 2 Daily Game Link-Up:
Alert Hopper Ashley noticed there was trouble linking up for the lovely digital prize on Day 2. I took a peek and noticed that Mr. Linky was giving me an alert to contact their help desk. Apparently there is some problem and I am hoping they will be able to get it sorted. Fortunately, you have clear till Nov. 3 to link up if you want to be in that prize drawing. I hope the Linky will get fixed straightway and you others can join in if you also had trouble linking up!! Thank you, Ashley, for alerting me to this glitch and thank all the rest of you for your patience and understanding. ❤❤❤ (UPDATE: All fixed now. Yay!)
NOTE: When posting your projects on your blog, please remember to post the Cat Hop Badge also if you can. I know that isn't possible with other platforms like Flickr and IG, but Badge Kitty Mistopheles and I would really appreciate it when you can. Thanks!!
Just a reminder.....You must SIGN IN HERE to be eligible for prizes. Also, LINK UP ALL PROJECTS ON THE MAIN HOP PAGE by 11:55 pm Pacific, Saturday, Oct. 30, 2021. I have my 2021 Cat Lovers Hop Guidelines and FAQs in a handy tab just under my header at the top of each page.

NOTE: This Sitting Cat is my favorite of the Darkroom Door cat stamps. Hahaha...it happens to be the only cat in their catalog, but it is one of the BEST I have seen. I told them I will keep requesting it as a prize until all my Hoppers have had a chance to win it! :) They told me they keep meaning to design and release new cats but the last couple of years have had a lot of interruptions with suppliers. When you visit to thank them for sponsoring, you might mention that we sure would love to see more cat stamps ❤
The Rabbit Hole Designs
I am so delighted to introduce a new sponsor to you today, The Rabbit Hole Designs. They offer fun and creative, clear stamps that will add a dash of quirkiness and sass to all your paper crafting projects.

Purple Onion Designs continues to offer stamps in traditional red rubber to capture the fine detail that many of the designs contain. Red rubber inks up easily and will work with all types of inks on the market. Clear stamps traditionally do not capture the same type of fine detail as red rubber. They also can be difficult to use with certain inks. These two qualities of our red rubber stamps will give you the best stamped impression possible.
The images are not available digitally. Purple Onion Designs believes in preserving the art form of rubber stamping.

Helpful Hopper, Christi, has another fun Daily Game Topic for us today!
Christi is another friend who emailed me out of the blue offering to help with the Hop this year. It was before I was even sick with Covid, but she just wanted to be of assistance....so sweet!! ❤I was in the middle of corresponding back and forth with all our dozens of fabulous sponsors and arranging prizes and asked her if she might come up with the Daily Game topics for me. She cheerfully accepted!!This chore might seem like a small thing, perhaps, but coming up with interesting, engaging games takes creative thought and consideration. Before long she had a wonderful list with lots of ideas for me to choose from!! It was such a help and relief to me. I am so grateful for her willingness!! Thank you, Christi, so very much!! Oh, and Christi is the one who suggested I ask NanaConnie to Guest Design...what a genius idea!! 💡
My cats are not into acrobatics or funny tricks, but they trick ME all the time. The outside ones who get to come in occasionally often clamor at the door this time of year to come inside where it is warm. They can tell by the squeak of the floorboards when we are going to the door to take something outside to the chickens or whatever. They race to the front or back door by running underneath the house!! A kitty will be near the window by the backdoor and either hear or see one of us going to the front door.....and as soon as you open that door, there is that SAME cat shooting through the door!! In seconds. They must have a racetrack underneath there! It is phenomenal how they can get there that fast. Little rascals!
