About Me

If you just want a quick look at likes, dislikes and wishlist please go all the way to the bottom!

If there is anything on my Amazon Wishlist that is listed as over the price amount to spend in a swap, please look at used items. I do not mind receiving used items in Amazon Wishlist Swaps

I rate everything that I receive. So if you don't get a rating please message me!

My name is Jessica! You'll often see me go by Shinyfox or Bubblesfox on the internet. My favorite colors follow along the 'cool' line. Blues, greens and browns are what I surround myself with.

I love all animals, but of course I have my favorites. Cats, foxes and hawks. I also love mythical creatures, the Gryphon(Griffin/Griffon) is my very favorite.

I am not a very crafty person, I can't draw or sew, paint or do paper craft, but I can write! I've participated in NaNoWriMo for 5 years. Recently I have taken up crosstitching! So I'm always interested in patterns or floss to use! I'm interested in crocheting and am hoping to find out more about this art!

I have three cats. Chonk (fat orange tabby), Kitkat (slim black cat), and Twix (fluffy petite black cat).

How did I find Swap-bot you ask? Funnily enough I am currently on another swapping site called PostCrossing (TheBlackCat). I love PostCrossing so much that I decided to see if I could branch out into other swapping sites!


Goodness, I love so many shows and I am in so many fandoms! I believe I'll just start by listing and then I can elaborate at another time!

Doctor Who,Torchwood, Supernatural, Sherlock (BBC), Grimm, Bones, Castle, Firefly, Warriors (cats), Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along-Blog, Harry Potter, Avatar the Last Airbender, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic), Avengers, Night Vale, Nerdfighters, Sword Art Online, Ginga Densetsu Weed (an anime about dogs), Lord of the Rings, Teen Wolf, Once Upon a Time, Adventure Time, Pokemon, Digimon

Tea & Snacks

I love tea, whether it is loose leaf or bagged.When I first started Swap-bot this section said I loved fruity teas, but I've been sent so many different types of tea lately that my interests have expanded. Please send any tea you would like to =) **I prefer decaffeinated tea!

As for small snacks that people might send through the mail, I'll try just about anything! In fact I enjoy trying new things. So send me whatever you'd like to share! The only thing I ask is that it not be spicy

Me and spicy just don't get along!

I have no food allergy's

Collections? Knick Knacks?

Do I have any collections? Am I drawn to anything in particular?

Cats and the Egyptian Goddess Bast (or Bastet).

  • I have numerous cat related objects in my room and multiple Bast statues. I don't know if having 3 cats is considered a collection, a hobby or just a problem. I love my boys!


  • I'm a huge book hoarder. I have well over 600 books in my room. Stacked precariously on shelves, shoved in trunks and I even store them on the cat tree when the cats aren't using it! Wherever there is an empty space that will hold a stack, you'll probably find books there.


  • Amethyst is my birthstone and I absolutely love it. Lapis Lazuli is another stone that I adore, though it tends to be more expensive and I don't have very much. To get even the smallest chip of Lapis would brighten my day.


  • You can never have to many D20's if you're a D&D or MTG player. I have about 30 D20 Dice all of them different. I love my dice.


  • I have 11 tattoos soon to be 13 in December, 14 in February and 15 in March 2021. Most of them are Cat tattoos. I have a spellbook, parasaurolophus, bat and elephants as well as my numerous cats

My Animals

Kitkat is my baby and the oldest of all the cats. He's a slim black cat who doesn't mind telling you when he's upset (he uses his claws and teeth in a death trap). But for the most part he wants to be snuggled. He meows and has a motor that, once it starts, it just won't stop. He enjoys being held when I come home and he gets very distressed if I don't pick him up as soon as I walk through that door. He's a very sensitive soul and is very attune to the energies in our house, more so to my own energies. He has two hobbies, sitting right next to me and sleeping or sitting nearby and watching me preform my daily activities. Also he's a catnip junkie.

Chonk is next in line. He is an overweight orange tabby that loves sitting at the foot of the bed and sleeping. That's pretty much all he does really. I rarely see him play with toys and he's a bit of a loner. He just wants to fit in but Kitkat and he don't get along well at all. Chonk loves being brushed and enjoys his cardboard scratchers.

Twix is the youngest of the three. She's my dainty petite little girl. She's a long haired black cat and her favorite past time is screaming at people and letting them know what her opinions are. She plays hard and loves all things on a string, especially if there are feathers involved. She loves her wet food and treats (especially the freeze dried minnows).

All of the cats in the house love Da Bird toy that we have and we constantly have to by replacement attachments for the toy! We also have to hide it very well otherwise the cats will find it and drag it out to play!


I am a PC gamer girl, mostly because I enjoy being on Skype calls with friends while I play games with them. I enjoy being able to talk to people who I play with.

My Steam name is Shinyfox with an avatar of a real red fox. Look me up if you want to play a game or two!

Sum it all up!

I have been looking at other profiles and looking in the forums. It seems people find lists a lot easier. I can understand, something that is quick and easy to look at. I hope this helps you figure out what to send me in swaps! THANK YOU!!!

MsMarvel rated for Uninteresting PC Swap - USA - #6 on Jan 11, 2021
Comment: Thanks for the Placerville postcard! I did find it a bit interesting, because it is a new place to me, and I liked that it was an aerial view! I think if it had been a skyline, it wouldn't have been as interesting!
