Challenge #14 - "Anything CAT Goes" or "Santa Cats" - sponsored by LeighSBDesigns

Welcome to Crazy for Cats Challenges!

I want to thank all of you for playing in my Crazy for Cats Challenges, it has been a purrtastic year but sadly the December challenge will be the last one for a while.  I'm having surgery on my hands with the first scheduled for January and therefore the CFC Challenges will be taking an indefinite break!  I wish you all Happy Holidays and hope to see you all back here soon in 2024!

Thank you for playing in our Challenge #13 and to Kate Hadfield Designs for being our PURRtastic sponsor!  The winners of Challenge #12 are now up here and #13 are now up here

Now for our December Challenge!
