A Bit of History
The 2010 calendar is the 27th successive calendar. Esther Cope, DeCourcy Squire and Bill Waters, inspired by a CAT LOVERS AGAINST THE BOMB button from England, started the project to benefit Nebraskans for Peace.
After some discussion they came up with the 1984 CAT LOVERS AGAINST THE BOMB (CLAB) wall calendar as a way to reach out to others of like mind — and to cat lovers who were not yet against the bomb.
Their ideas captured the imagination of others in Nebraskans for Peace with the late Betty Olson continuing as editor for many years. Since her death in 1999, publishing of the calendar has been the project of the CLAB Editorial Committee. Friends of CLAB make up an informal network of cat lovers promoting peace and justice.
The connection between cat lovers and peace lovers is a phenomenon many have observed and is accentuated in the unique matching of cat photos and thought-provoking quotations in the calendar.
All profit from sales of CLAB calendars and CLAB merchandise supports Nebraskans for Peace, a statewide advocacy organization working non-violently for peace with justice through community building, education and political action.

Our History Updated

The release of the 2017 CLAB calendar marks its 34th consecutive year. The Cat Lovers Against the Bomb (CLAB) wall calendar serves as a way to reach out to others of like mind - and to cat lovers who are not yet against the (nuclear) bomb. The thousands of Friends of CLAB, who have purchased the calendar year after year, make up an informal network of cat lovers who promote peace and social justice for all.

Inspired by a CLAB button from England, Esther Cope, DeCourcy Squire, and Bill Waters started the project in 1984 to benefit Nebraskans for Peace (NFP). The late Betty Olson (spouse of founding NFP and CLAB editorial committee member Paul Olson) served as the CLAB editor for 15 years - from its inception until 1999.

From the passing of Betty Olson through the summer of 2016, the publishing of the calendar became a labor of love from the CLAB editorial committee, which was generously led by Loyal and Mary Alice Park and the committee's 15 members.

The new Cat Lovers Calendar (CLC) development team thanks the CLAB editorial committee for the thousands of collective hours that they spent developing the CLAB calendar year after year.

Although the reins were transferred to its new development team (Caryl, Brittany, Susan, Roy, Lois, and Kathy) with the Cat Lovers Calendar during the CLAB 2016 sales season, it will continue to be sponsored by Nebraskans for Peace. We look forward to hearing from you as we bring you a special remembrance every single day through our unique calendars.

In order to develop new social themes alongside our faithful and favorite felines, we accept electronic photographs year round. Please read the criteria for both color and black/white photo submissions on
