What size shirt do you wear? XL, or 2XL depending on the type of shirt. XL if it is a traditional men's t-shirt. 2XL (or sadly even 3XL) in most women's clothes.
Do you prefer t-shirts, sweatshirts or blouses? T-shirts probably. I like pretty blouses, since I dress up to go to one of my jobs, though!
Do you prefer solid colors or prints, and if the latter, what kind (floral, geometric, stripes, etc.)? I don't like plaid, or big, loud patterns, but I do like patterns on clothing. I like paisley and flowing, swirly patterns, and subdued flowery patterns as long as the colors aren't too bright. I also like solid colors.
Do you like to receive specialty socks as a gift? I absolutely ADORE silly socks! They are one of my most favorite things ever! I wear silly socks all the time. I wear silly socks to work in the office, sneaking around in ladybug socks while wearing a suit, and giggling about it. I would be so happy to get silly socks!
What is your shoe/sock size? I wear a size 9 in women's!


PETS

How many animals do you have? What kind (cats, dogs, etc!) Tell us a little about their favorite toys/treats! I have two Siamese cats, Pixel & Bamf, but my roommate has acquired a stray kitten as of last weekend - a little black kitten that my roommate has named Bagheera! Bamf loves to chase little things that make noise like pop caps and jingly bells. He also loves Da Bird. He is indifferent to catnip. His favorite treats are the Wellness treats that are like jerky. Pixel loves Da Bird and the laser pointer. She loves to chase things and juuuuump. She also really loves catnip. Her favorite treats are Whiska's Temptations and Greenies. She likes crunchy treats. We don't really know what Bagheera likes yet. He seems to like everything so far!
Does your pet (s) have any allergies to certain foods/treats that should be avoided? Nope!
Are there any kind of cat toys that should be avoided? (i.e. feathers, string, noisy toys that scare kitty...) Nope!
Do your kitties wear collars? If so what kind? Nope!
What kind(s) of brush or comb do you have for your cats and/or dogs? I have 1 of almost every kind of brush that you can get...
Do your cats like catnip, valerian, or honeysuckle? Pixel loves catnip. I have never tried Valerian or honeysuckle. I haven't tried anything on Bagheera yet.

I love reading or browsing through here, the cate site or this thread, all the time and I or other people, appreciate the time or lack of time, you took to answer or fill out the questions, even if I or someone else, may or may not, be your Secret Santa.

Hope I was or wasn't clear!
