Just had a crazy idea and I'm curious if there are more crazy animal-lovers out there. ;)

This is a swap for people who like penpalling and writing fiction.

You will send a letter 'written by your pet to another pet'. It should be handwritten, at least 2 pages and optically fitting to this pet-topic (printed paper, stickers, stamps etc.).

For example my cat could tell my partner's dog about a day in a cat life or a partner's cat about a good strategy to get into the neighbour's kitchen and steal some food. Be creative! :)

You can join whatever pet you own, may it be a horse, cat, dog, chicken, fish, hamster... Please leave a comment after joining and tell your pet's name, age and gender so your partner has an idea about it when writing. If you have several pets, you can list them all and leave the choice to the sender.

Please add your return address, your pet might get an answer from his new pet-penfriend. ;)

Feel free to message me or leave a comment if you have questions.

No unrated members or ratings below 4,9, please. I will check this before matching the partners.

Thank you all for joining!

The second version for this swap is now available, you can find it on my profile.

Please remember to write the details about your pet here in the comments.

@Gwenerific I don't have any influence on who's your partner but I'm sure your partner will be happy about a letter from a dog also if he or she does not own one him/herself. If you're unsure, message your partner after I assigned them and ask if it's ok.

I'd love to sign up for this but I can no longer handwrite much of anything due to hand problems from an illness. I have a lot of penpals that do not mind getting the typed/printed letters, but this specifies handwritten for some reason?

Dooley is a 4 year old yellow Lab that weighs approximately 105. Very spoiled. He is our grandson that we inherited. He knows us as Grandma and Grandpa. His favorite things are frisbees, ice cream cones, going for a ride in Grandpa's pickup, and treats.

Angel a 2 year old Turkish Van female and Delphi (Delly), a 3 year old orange and white former barn cat.

Nellie1 09/10/2016 #

Delly is male.

@pinkpolarbear In this case I think we can make an exception. I was asking for handwritten letters to avoid printed form letters but if you write a personal letter by computer, it's ok. Maybe you like to do some extra pretty decorations instead. If you like you can sign up for the second edition then, it's already prepared for people to join.

bluesky 09/11/2016 #

@Aske just read your questions, sorry for the late reply. their names are Hoover (est 1 year) Whiskers (est 5-7 years) both are males.

bluesky 09/11/2016 #

@Gwenerific you are my partner, no problem with "a letter from your dog" :)

bluesky 09/11/2016 #

no wait, I am your partner, sorry. lol

Hello, partner! I have an 8 year old dog named Nelson. He's a pit/beagle/boxer mix (at least, that's our best guess).

wm 09/11/2016 #

A rescue named Comet - in German "Komm mit" means "come along"; besides, by the time he walked into our house, we were 'committed" to this (presumably) alsationxsheep dog,

swededreams 09/11/2016 #

Ack, I missed this part. I have a 3 month old blue heeler puppy named Zip. You can see him on my page :) I also have a 12 yr. old cat named Tabby (female).
