    Congratulations to the winners! It sounds like it was a difficult choice with so many talented writers and fascinating cats. Looks like the contest was a smashing success.

    We got a lot of entries, which surprised us, but we had more entries with no cats which surprised us more. It finally came down to eighteen really strong candidates, which is when we had to take the final decision that cats trumped werecats, and then have a civilised arguement over which of the remaining books would make the cut.

    My thanks to Angel for going through this with me. The Bookangel reviews for these books are to follow, once we have caught up on sleep.

    I believe we are just waiting on the winner's mailing address to send the prizes now.

    Hey fantastic.

    Congrats to the winner and runners-up. That's more cats in books than I thought possible.

    And well done for running it. You must have had fun reading all those books.

    Have you seen the author's photo of Tigger? He was almost Stephen's size!

    Congrats to the winners, and to you all for getting through it! It sounds like an interesting read, too.

    That cat is HUGE. I thought my baby was getting big, but he's nothing compared to Tigger.

    That is a big cat. I can't wait to read the book. I reminds me of Dewey Read More Books. Have any of you read this one? It's a wonderful book.

    A lot of hard work, but all worthwhile and thanks to Reader for being so steadfast.

    Still a few things to do, but all the winners and runner-ups have now been notified and prizes and such like sent out.

    Congratulations to the winners and bravo to everyone that entered! Tigger sounds like an entertaining read to say the least.

    Oh my gosh though, Tigger is HUGE.
