The first blog candy was in the Day 1 post, with the interview with Sam, and those who wanted in had to mention EYEBROWS in their comments, plus there were ways to gain additional entries. Since there were fewer drawings for the international peeps, I gave those of you who said you were outside the USA one bonus entry to help even the odds for the USA only giveaways you couldn’t enter. (FYI, I only did this on the two posts where I’m sending the blog candy, evening out with the two USA only posts.) Of the 50 comments on that post, 30 qualified for the blog candy and there were 5 international bonus entries.

So, Mr. Random.org was asked to pick a number from 1-35, and he said…

For those of you that didn’t win… as you dejectedly take to your couches,  couchunderstands

  1. Haha!! Your post and kitty memes were nearly as fun as the blog candy prices on the hop!! Congrats to all the winners and a big thank you to Janis for putting it all together. What a great week it was, full of cat stories and crafts, and fun galore. Taking to my couch now, but with a big smile on my face and that sweet kitty song in my head!

  3. Congratulations to each of the winners!!!! Such lucky cat ladies!!!

    Oh, D.Ann, you are a peach! What a thoughtful thing to offer these games and prizes on your blog with the fabulous interviews!! How nice to give the international entries an extra entry on the ones they qualified for…..and to give special candy to one of your new followers (the most fortunate thing for them, however, is that they will get to enjoy your awesome posts and projects right away whenever you put one up!)…but then also to scrounge underneath the couches, stove, and refrigerator (ha!!) for a gift for me is totally unexpected and beyond sweet!!!

    Thank you for a wonderful week and for all you did to make this 2016 Cat Lovers Hop so fun and memorable!!! I am emailing you right now!!!
