    Felis Catus Swap, Open Media, Due June 2nd, 2022

    Swap Due Date – Thursday, June 2nd, 2022
    Signup/withdraw Date – None; please just communicate
    Number of Cards - 3 for 3
    Number of Participants – Unlimited
    Media – Open Media, excluding exclusively digital
    Theme – Felis catus

    Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved cats. My mom was allergic, so I could never have one, and then, by the time I was in high school, I too had developed a cat allergy. But in 2003, a young, stray Siamese-tabby mix came into my apartment through my open door, and I decided I didn't care if I had to start allergy shots (which I did!). Sonora wormed her way into our hearts, and since then my hubby and I have never been without a kitty. Last month, we lost our baby Morgan (14 yrs), and though we are saddened whenever we lose one of our fur babies, we wouldn't trade our time with them for anything.

    So this swap is to celebrate all domestic cats (Felis catus). You are welcome to feature one of your own fur babies, or any kitty in general. The only requirement for this swap is to include an image of a domestic cat on each card.

    Card Guidelines:
    1. Each card must be the standard ATC size of 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
    2. Each card must be original and unique. Please don’t send in cards that you’ve swapped/traded in the past or plan on replicating for swapping/trading in the future.
    3. Any embellishments must be relatively flat and lightweight.
    4. Please send in only work that you have put thought, time, and effort into. Make sure that you are swapping a card you would be happy to receive.
    5. Please make sure that cards have a sturdy background and earn the name “card.”
    6. Each card must be in an individual plastic sleeve (please no connecting photo album sleeves without also including individual sleeves).
    7. Each card should be labeled with the swap name, your username, your real name, date of creation, and your location.

    Mailing Guidelines:
    1. Please mail cards in a business sized envelope, spreading the cards over the space of the envelope.
    2. If you tape your cards together or onto a sturdy background when mailing, please use an easy-release tape such as painter’s tape or washi tape. I don’t want anyone’s beautiful artwork to be damaged by tape.
    3. Please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope for your return cards.
    4. If you are mailing from the U.S., one Forever stamp should cover the cost of returns.
    5. If you are mailing internationally, please provide one of the following for your returns:
    a. One U.S. Forever stamp.
    b. One well-concealed $1 bill.
    c. $1 payment via PayPal.

    *When you are ready to mail your cards, please just private message me for my address. If you have it from an earlier swap, it has not changed.
    *iTraders will be given when cards are received by me.
    *Please note that cards must be received by the due date. No cards and no communication will result in neutral iTrader. You may withdraw any time before the due date.
    *A host card would be greatly appreciated and loved, but is never required.
    *Please make sure to leave an iTrader for your host (me) and You Rocks! for the artists that created your return cards when you receive them.

    MUST join a cat swap!! Sign me up please.

    They may play at being aloof but mine always knew when I really needed a cuddle and would curl up on my lap and purr me back to peace.
    All of mine are gone now and my husband is enjoying his retirement travelling (one advantage of living in a huge state in Australia - we can travel from rain forests to deserts to cultural cities without crossing a border). I will give him a few years of enjoyment then we will get another kitty. . .
    I will be away from July 29 till Aug 23 - any cards received during that time will be acknowledged when I get back.

    I'm really a dog person, but I can have fun with cats too. If you all don't discriminate, I'd like to play.

    Welcome to the swap, Donnacr! So glad you could join us!

    We have been so fortunate with ours that they have almost all loved to cuddle with us! I hear ya with the travel, though I have to admit that the older I get, the more I just want to stay home and curl up with my cats and a good book!
