Details of swap:
Maybe cats and dogs just aren't your type, maybe you just needed some itty bitty squishy love. Whatever the reason, do you spend your days slaving to the needs of carpet sharks? Do your rats have more toys than you ever did? Do you agonize over every detail in the hamster cage? Scoff at dog owners who dress up their poodles and pay hundreds of dollars for grooming when you've broken eight sewing machine needles making Betty, Boop and Blinkie a bunch of cushy hammocks that they're just going to chew through anyway? Do you check your bedsheets every night for ferret/rat/cavy pellets/raisins before you lay down? Did you stop that useless habit ages ago and just hop in bed without caring anyway? Tongue This is your swap.

This is a ferret/rodent/pocket pet themed swap. If you don't have one of these pets, or a pet at all, please feel free to join us! There are just as many things that can be made for rodent-appreciators that can be made for the pets themselves. In fact, this is a 7 point swap, and at least two points must be spent on making items for the owner.

Because of the nature of this swap, communication is really stressed with your partner. Some people are picky with what they give to their pets, especially when it comes to treats. I'm going to try and cover as possible, but at least send your partner an introduction PM so that you can get to know them better. Also, as there will be just over a month of crafting time, please try to check in on the swap thread once a week.

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

Craftster username
Email address
Your real name

-What sort of bedding items do they enjoy (hammocks, cuddle cups, etc)?

Awww. I wish I still had cute little furry creatures. I've had a rat, mice, chipmunks, a guinea pig, gerbils and hamsters all at some point in my life. Currently I have a dog but she's far away. Sad This looks like an awesome swap, have fun guys.
