About Me


PSA: original thread by @TC

This is the time of year when returning flakers show up - often with new profiles. We always see an increase in their return in September, October, and November. Many of them have learned to get an early start on establishing a "legitimate" profile before the big holiday package swaps get started. They join a bunch of Type 1 and 2 swaps in the fall, get some good ratings, and then go flakey on the Christmas swaps.

Hosts would be wise to carefully check new profiles, and consider limiting package swaps or high dollar gift swaps to swappers with 20 or more Type 3 ratings.

Swappers should be careful about joining Christmas swaps with no rating requirement and of course always check your host's ratings, too.


The mail in my area has been unusually slow for some reason. If you don't get something from me by the due date please let me know asap.


@satinification has taken over the pass it on sticker notecard swap. Please see her profile to join.


Hi, my name is Flo, I live in the U.S., in Virginia, very close to Washington, DC. I am retired and live alone with 4 cats. Yes, I guess I am the typical crazy cat lady lol. I love art, mostly sketching. I used to be able to draw when I was younger but have lost that skill. Trying to gain it back. I have been on the bot for a while now and it's my new home.

Comment: Thank you so much for the card and the extra sticker sheet! I am in love with it!! <3 I'm sure Carson will learn to adapt to his new home. It's already a good sign that the other cats aren't fighting with him. I hope everything turns out well.

Thank you for the super cute deer you drew me for the "Draw Me a . . . Tag" in the PF! IDK how you drew it on tissue paper! That must have been very difficult. I love it! (and the little pandas on it's back!)

Hi Flo! Thank you for angeling the Getting To Know You Letter Newbie Friendly INTL 2 Swap. I enjoyed reading your responses to the questions, and also thank you for the Virginia postcard as well. My boyfriend and I is trying to plan a vacation before the year ends, and Washington D.C. is one we have in mind so we can visit the museums there but we are scared about the weather and how cold it'll be in November, lol. >.>

Wow. I just got your RAK yesterday and I just wanted to say tysm. I feel SO blessed to have received the box of goodies. My foster cat Clarice went nuts! She was a street rescue and I haven't had the chance to give her catnip. I think it was her first time. She went nuts. I took a thank you video for you of her using it for the 1st time. Message me so I could send you it. Thank you SO much again. ๐Ÿ’
