    Hi Kitties, we did run a secret santa last year, which really was fun. I cant remember who organised it but I dont think they are here anymore. Chase, do you want to organise it this year? or if not, then me and Mum are more than happy to get it underway, we really like doing things like this, but as you have suggested it we will leave the decision to you. I will check back later. FUN FUN FUN

    Oh sorry, forgot to explain for Caelestis how this works, or roughly how it works. Last year a thread was opened and all kitties that wanted to join in the Secret Santa post in the thread to say they wanted to join, a list was then collated and I believe a name was picked at random for each kitty to play "secret santa" on. You then present that kitty with either a virtual gift, e-card, rosette, star, poem, etc etc, it really was good fun last year, and some how I ended up with two....hehehe. I think we set a date of something like 22-24th for gifts etc to be given. Chase, I hope this is what you had in mind.

    That would be cool! We would like to join. We do Secret Santy Paws with Save A Sato, and we send each other cool presents. This is my first Christmas so my Sato sisters are gonna help me. Can you believe there's only one other kitty doing it? Well there are not a lot of Gatos in the states I guess. So my Secret Pal is an 80 pound Sato named Andre - way cool - all 7 pounds of me gets an 80 pound pooch! MOL!!!!!!!!

    Sounds like fun! I'm already in a Secret Santa project with one of my groups but we are sending real presents. I want to do a virtual Secret Santa too!

    Wow that sounds like fun Lucky Boo. I'll wait to hear from Chase and then we can hopefully get the virtual secret santa underway.

    Bruce, I was thinking along the lines of what Lucky Boo was saying - an actual Secret Santa, w/actual gift giving. I think a virtual one is a purrfect idea as well. Some mommmys and daddy's say no way to sharing addresses, but our mommy has met lots of cool buds and she is OK with it. Bruce, if you want to head this up, I'm OK w/ it and you can let the rest of us know what you need. I'm here to help out with anything. Purrs, Chase

    We would love to participate in this Secret Santa also. There are 4 of us in my family. Please keep us posted on the decision. Real gifts are always fun to give.

    I would like to be in it if it is virtual gifts like rosettes. Mommy would love to give every kitty a little real gift, but we have to think of privacy and also our financial situation. Even if that does sound a little selfish. Sorry if it does, but we have other family members we need to buy for too

    I would like to participate! My meowmie participates in a card exchange in one of her yahoo groups and was in another a long time ago with another yahoo group. Nigel and Isis were in the "Pampered Princes and Princesses Club" on the Internet years ago and they were in it twice. At first she sent virtual cards and stuff, then she sent a real present to the kitties' home for Christmas Day. Nigel and Isis were once secret santas to a home with 7 kitties! It's a good idea to get an anonymous email address so as not to give your identity away until the last gift exchange. In the clubs they were in, mostly everyone knew everyone else's email so that's why the anonymous ones come in handy. Purrs, Gimli

    My Creatures and I would like to participate in Secret Santa again. I don't remember who started the one last year but I do remember that there was some problem along the way and some felines did not receive any gifts or the name of the feline they had to give a gift to.

    We would love to do it too! It sounds like alot of fun! I think that giving real gifts would be a little more fun, but either way sounds cool! Purrs, Tux

    Well, Bruce was checking on a few things with Catster, and then we can begin planning. I will begin making a list of all that are in and maybe get a few ideas from what Dogster is doing. Watch for future updates about this fun Holiday Secret Santa event!

    Wah wah wah, when I signed up at Elfster. com and accepted, my name changed from "Sindri" to "Lucky Boo and Luna." They are in the Super Strollers gift exchange. I wanted to be in this one! I guess Mom should've entered a different e-mail address... so she could sign up as a different cat. Boo hoo.
