I usually try to activate all pages within 24 hours. I get to them almost first thing in the morning (my morning is your middle of the night
On weekends and occasionaly on weekdays too, I may miss a day or two. This is what happened this weekend, but I plan to get them all sorted out by tomorow. For every page with photos I need to make a thumbnail size image (the one that shows when you search for cat pages). This is what takes a bit of time (downloading a picture, editing it into the new image and then uploading the new image).
You should get an email when the page is activated. Thanks for making a cat page for Gimpy!
