Welcome to Secret Paws 2021!
Gift costs are always kept to a minimum, and we do our best to exchange names "within country", so none have the added expense of overseas shipping. We do ask that one and all respect deadlines, so all kitties have their goodies to open on Christmas Day!
So ~ whether you have joined in past years ~ or if Secret Paws is new to you ~ just let us know you want to be part of this event (deadline is 11/20/21, letting us know sooner is always better) ... and then you'll receive your very own
Who Can Participate?
Kitties who are part of a blog can participate in the Secret Paws Exchange. It doesn't matter if you are posting on a regular basis as long as there is a blog address where people can visit and get to know your cats. We know many who don't blog or who have a FB page would like to participate, but the Secret Paws Exchange will be limited to blogging kitties this year.
