Secret Santa 2019

*I had posted a thread last night but it won't open for me so will try again!*

Well guys, with Hallowe'en over it's time to turn our attention to our annual Secret Santa event!

Any type of pet is welcome, the standard and the more.. unusual! So whether they have fur, scales, feathers or spines, all are welcome here.

A couple of little ground rules : 
-You can enter as many pets as you like, and you will be buying presents for an equal number of pets.
-You can build or buy your presents, but the spending limit is €10. You can get very creative on a budget!
-You must have at least 100 posts on boards to enter to ensure all entries are genuine.
-Entries will be limited to 30 this year so please get them in asap!
-Please include the owners name on the postal address to avoid confusion for the poor posties who are busy enough this time of year! The pet's name should be included elsewhere (eg. Patch, C/O John Smith) as some people enter multiple pets.
-Please include a return address on the package to avoid any losses and last minute gift buying and emergency posting!

So now that all that is out of the way, here’s what I need from you!
Your Details
-Your Name – Make sure that the package will reach you, you can use your full name or initials.
-Your Address – this will be treated with the strictest confidence. This can be your home address, or a c/o address/ work address!
-EirCode

Your pet’s details
-Species:
-Pet’s name (optional):
-Gender:
-Breed/size:
-Is food allowed: (note that some animals may suffer from allergies)
-Likes/Dislikes:

Closing date for entries : November 15th

Posting dates : 2nd to 6th December (you are welcome to send them off before this!)

Opening date : 23rd of December

* In relation to GDPR, please delete the info I send you (including PMs in your boards.ie folders and any notifications you receive in your email account) when you confirm you have posted your parcel *

This thread will be a fun place to discuss all the happenings, so please PM me if there are any problems!

Let the fun begin

Your thread was working. There's something up with boards. Keep getting 404 trying to open threads and can't see the stickies in most forums.

I had planned not to enter this year but just reading this has made me feel all Christmassy and excited so now I'm not sure!

Of course you can ask. Any questions welcome here!

Yes, you will be given the exact same information you provide eg. Name, species, if food is allowed, likes, dislikes etc.

Hope that helps!
Have 6 confirmed entries so far so would love some more....the doggies are also leading the entries by a long shot so lets get some cats, bunnies, horses, fish, birds etc entered

Apologies as I did not express that very well! I am limited as to what I can acquire to give as I am out at sea! So I need it to be a cat I give to. Or a small dog.

If that is possible then I will enter one of my five cats! Please.
