2022 Cat Lovers Hop Guidelines and FAQs

Hi, Friends.....

Can you believe it is Day 4 already???
The Hop is halfway over and look at all our projects!!  There were well over 100 fabulous feline entries when I last checked the Linky Tool.  Way to go everyone!! 

And did you see all the amazing Kitty Poetry from the Day 3 Daily Game???  If you missed it, you really must go back and take a look.  Everyone did such a great job.  Many of them are really funny and a few bring a tear or two to the eyes.  One thing I can say about our Hoppers:  we REALLY know cats!!  I love so much reading all your kitty tales.  Thank you for participating in our Games!! 

Also.....I happened to notice a few extra prize opportunities being offered by some of our lovely Cat Hoppers.  Kitty (Please see my sidebar for more info!), Becca, and Karen each 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 all the projects yet, 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 very glad you found us!!!  I hope you already can tell what a warm and friendly group this is.  Please find a soft blanket to curl up on and make yourselves at home! ❤

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 Othello and I would really appreciate it when you can.  Thanks!!

OOOOPS!!  Operator Error in Play: 
On Day 2, I had the wrong link for Heffy Doodle's Blog Event.  Oh...arrrgh!!  I had last year's link instead of this year's!!  My bad!!  I would be most grateful if you all would please go to THIS YEAR'S LINK and tell them thank you.

A Facebook Glitch this time:
FB  projects are often a little bit problematic for linking up....and that platform seems to be worse this year than before.  Ugh.  We always have Hoppers that would like to visit but are not members of FB, but sometimes even those of us who are on FB can't view the projects!
Just a reminder that if you are linking up from FB, please make sure your "privacy" settings allow Public or Unlimited viewing, not just Friends.  Otherwise most of us can't come visit and leave a comment.  Thanks so much!  


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. 29, 2022.  I have my 2022 CAT LOVERS HOP - Guidelines and FAQs in a handy tab just under my header at the top of each page.  All these links are at the top of each Hop post, too.

DAY 4 GAME:  Tell us a Kid-Friendly Cat Riddle or Joke! 
It's okay to look one up on the internet or make one up yourself!!! 
Here are a couple of rules: 
1.  Family-friendly jokes only, please.  We have kids that participate in our Hop!
2.  Please keep your jokes cute and harmless.....the kind of clever or corny thing you might find in a riddle or joke book for kids.  The sillier the better!!!  :)

For those international Hoppers who might have some trouble with English, please feel free to share a joke from your own country and translate it for us!  I have a neighbor from a different country who tells me jokes from his home country all the time.  So much fun!!! 

I'll start with a couple of silly ones I found that made me smile:
Did you hear about the cat who swallowed a ball of wool?
She had mittens. 
What do you call it when a cat wins first place at a Dog Show?
A "Cat-has-trophy".

Okay, now it is your turn!! 
Make us laugh with a Cat Joke or Riddle.

That's all for today.  Keep making those awesome projects and leaving those wonderful comments! 

Also...Please keep thanking our fabulous sponsors. 
NOTE:  Sometimes it can be difficult to find a place to thank these lovely companies if they are not doing a blog event or have public posts on their FB.  If you are on FB, you can try using Messenger to express your thanks! 
See you tomorrow for Day 5!
