Our Mission: To bring comfort to ferrets everywhere, whether they are in shelters, sanctuaries, or forever homes. To bring peace of mind to ferret owners, foster parents, and shelter parents in knowing that their “tenants” are warm and comfortable. Because, in a failing economy, the last thing these wonderful ferret friends and parents want to worry about is having enough bedding for these wonderful little bundles of fur.
“Joy is first in the making and then in the giving.”
I don’t get that much for Christmas — thank you all at Crafty Weasels for all the great bedding, and toys – they are always needed – its amazing how much damage the ferrets can do in just a few months, and new bedding is always a treat for them – and the cages look so festive…the carrier hammocks are fun for the ferrets, always fun to see how many can get in one hammock. I have had a full house recently, as one of my volunteers, a very special lady and her husband, had a medical problem (he did) but it kept her busy for over a month…open heart surgery – so I had her 12 ferrets for the time he was in the hospital, and when he came home, till she was comfortable taking care of him and the ferrets…made life interesting, but they are back home now, and all is better.
Again Many many thanks for all the goodies
Hugs all around

Holey Cow!!!!! You and the CW gang not only made me a ton of beautiful and very functional bedding, but I could feel the love in each piece!!! I’m blessed for you all to have done this for my shelter. I’ll be replacing the bedding this week and will send a few pics!
One of the things I love about ferrets is that they show gratitude. As much as I enjoy the new bedding, they do too! I can already expect them to leap and play in the new fresh bedding!
From the bottom of my heart, I’m grateful and please extend to the crew my appreciation!
Rocky’s Ferret Rescue & Shelter
Please extend my thanks to everyone for the generous beautifully made bedding, carrier, and toys for the ferrets! Much more than anticipated! The carrier hammocks are cleverly made with the button attachment and the sick fuzzy carrier will certainly be put to good use for the seniors!
Salem was quick to tote off one of the toys to his hidey hole as soon as he noticed it!
Thank you so much from me and fuzzies!

WHOO_HOO! I got an awesome package of goodies from my favorite ladies (and gentlemen) of Crafty Weasels! AWESOME! It is truly Christmas in July and how on earth do you get so much in that box? I started at the top, oohing and ahhing and kept going…and kept going and kept going! So many pretty hammies and I am thrilled! And perfect for Louie, who soils his 2 or 3 times daily, poor sweetie.Especially exciting, I spotted a familiar fabric too! I am pleased beyond belief! Now to connect with Ann and get this load of fabric down to you….hoping she is feeling better and ready to roll this week–calling her tomorrow…thank the ladies for me , over and over…and the guys! ❤

I am absolutely without words to thank you and the Crafty Weasels for your very generous donation to us. I wish I could tell you how happy the kids will be with all this amazing stuff. I don’t know how we were fortunate enough to be included in your gifting, but rest assured the things you sent are so very greatly appreciated!
Director, Weasel Way Ferret Rescue
Our box arrived a few days ago. Thank you so much for remembering us <3. The bedding is bright, and beautiful, and expertly crafted
You guys do so much for the ferret community, and it’s a shame there isn’t more recognition & thanks for all of the comfort you have given to ferrets everywhere. You and your crew are just the greatest!!!
May God bless you all!
With much love & appreciation from Zoo and all of the ferrets at Zoo`s Ferret Sanctuary, N.F.P.
We all were very touched by the quality and amount of bedding. The cozy carrier is so precious and will be very useful for older ferrets. We also love the fact that the hammocks also double as cuddle bags. Amazing work! As soon as the new bedding was added to the cage we had one ferret climb in the hammock and another carpet sharking the shelf sack. I added a hammock and shelf sac in another cage and Boo Boo who is a very sluggish, large fellow with the sweetest little face was trying to stuff himself into the hammie before we hung it! The firecracker toy was also a very big success. We would like to thank you very much for all of the wonderful work you do throughout the year.

Hi Florence & the Crafty Weasels
Just wanted to let you know that we receive our package of ferret bedding today. We can’t tell you how excited we were with all the different types of items. Hammocks, Sleep Sacks, Hammies for Carriers and the square Wonton Hammies.
The fabrics and quality are outstanding! We know you all get together and have sewing days for shelters like ours and we are so thankful for all you do for us.
Together, we can make a difference in the lives of these ferrets that are abandoned, abused, neglected and sick.
Thank you from the bottom of our Hearts!
Blessings to all of you during this Season of Love and Giving!
Matthew Jaramillo – Director
The box has arrived! It’s a rather large box, and stuffed to the brim! Wow! We certainly did not expect to receive so much! Everything is absolutely gorgeous. Many thanks to all who have contributed to the creation of these wonderful items.I must say that the flower hammies are very creative. I know that our guys will enjoy! The sling was a pleasant surprise. I have had on my “list of things to do” to get one of those slings, but didn’t know where to find them. I frequently carry sick ones or just the old ones around the house while I do my chores. It’s amazing at how the movement of your body and the heartbeat, body warmth really is stimulating and comforting to the ferret. Previously I have used just a pillow case with rope. The sling is perfect, in that it is adjustable, and it cradles the ferret with support. Awesome!Please know that our gang of some 89 ferrets will enjoy your gifts – approximately 64 at the main shelter, plus the 25 at several foster homes. Your hard work and crafty skills are very much appreciated! Thanks to All!–Cheers,
Nirvana Ridge Ferret Rescue
We received the box of bedding, toys and love. I can’t thank you enough for this. We had a very sad stray come in and I wrapped her in one of your hammocks. She was very sick but cuddled up and relaxed. She knew how much love was around her with the hammock. Alina left for the Rainbow Bridge the same day we met her but she knew comfort with your loving bedding.
Thank you for all you do
Kathy of Sammy’s Clubhouse Spokane Ferret Rescue
When I arrived home yesterday, there was a HUGE box of bedding for my guys & gals! I am so grateful, thank you, thank you, thank you! I’ve been buying fleece blankets from Walmart, and was down to my last unopened small sleep hammock. I’ve gotten so I wash the hammocks by hand, and hang out to dry, to save wear & tear on them.
I handle all of the geriatric, terminally ill ferrets; I’m the hospice part of RFRL. I’m down to 15, which is the lowest amount of ferrets I’ve had in 17 years of sheltering. I send other incoming ferrets to a few volunteers, or to Nirvana Ridge, a new ferret shelter opened by a good friend of mine.
The old ferts are my favorites, always have been. Although they tend to poop on themselves, in their hammocks, on their cagemates or wherever they just feel like it, I love their determination and will to live.
Thank you so very much!! I’ll be changing out bedding all day and will post pics on my FB RFRL page, as well as my own. Hugs.!
Richmond Ferret Rescue League

Words are not enough to thank you ladies for the wonderful new hammies we got today from you, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. I was doing ferret cages today and their hammies were so sad and now I can put all new one in for the babies. You ladies are so wonderful for what you do and again thanks so much the fuzzies here at Luna’s thank you also.

I have several sick/recuperating ferrets right now- in all 15 ferrets.
Thank You so much for doing this wonderful & MUCH appreciated box of Happiness!!

Florence & ladies:
Thank you so very, very much for the much new bedding. We’re more of a sanctuary than a shelter. We do not adopt out any of the ferrets we get in. As the babies get older they can’t always make it to the litter box (or they just don’t bother) or the bedding gets push/pulled through the litter box/poop. The younger ones like to scratch the floor/bottom of the bedding. After a while the bedding gets holes in it or gets too dirty to wash. You can imagine how much bedding we go through.
I love the comfort sling you sent us. Our oldest lady (who’s almost 9) likes to cuddle up in it and ride around with me all day. They all love the toys. It’s hysterical to watch 2 or 3 of them try to grab and stash the braided toy all at the same time. We haven’t tried the carrier hammy yet. I’m saving it until we head to the Michigan show.
I do apologize for not contacting you as soon as we received the box. My daughter has been ill and in the hospital.
Again, thank you all for the wonderful bedding.
Hi Florence! I received an absolutely beautiful box of bedding and a sling today! I don’t even know how to thank you ladies! You are all wonderful! Thank you so very very much!Jill

Oh my goodness!! I am totally speechless at the wonderful box that arrived tonight!! I am so very excited to hang it up for all the kiddos, and see what they think! It is a beautiful thing you all do, and the kids have already had a blast with the noisey toys! We, and they, are very grateful for the package, and thank you from the bottom of our hearts! As the little ones we have taken in are adopted out, we will be sending pieces of your beautiful bedding with them, so they will have something wonderful to nap in, and will pass the contact info of your group on to the new family. I will be putting pics of the bedding up and your contact info on our page, Ferretpallozza, tomorrow evening when I get home, got home late tonight. We are truly grateful for the wonderful box of goodies we received tonight, and please let us know if we can re pay you in anyway!!

“I got a super duper package delivered today! I swear you guys & gals are the best. My very first favorite was the Garfield & Odie one, until I flipped it over to see the Teddy Bear Baseball ones, then it was the Flower Power ones, THEN the Mardi Gras ones… and my favorite changed with every new piece I exposed! Over a dozen beautiful sleep sacks & hammocks. The Firecracker toys are already a hit with the kids & there is a whole lot of shakin’ going on, let me tell ya! And the Comfy Sling is great for those that need a little reassuring. That really comes in handy for the hospice part of what we do here. Plus I was very happy to see another braided toy. Golly my kids LOVE that design! You all have seriously out done yourselves. If I wasn’t so tired right now I’d be changing out all the bedding just so I can add all this color to the cages! May be after a power nap….. Thank you so very, very much!”

Florence and all the members of Crafty Weasels of Georgia, I can’t thank you all enough for your continued support of my rescue. Folks like you make it possible for me to spend the very limited cash I receive on medication and surgeries. Your beautiful bedding and toys enrich the lives of these forgotten and sometimes abused babies we all love so much. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU ALL!
From: Katharine Long- Tallahassee Ferret Rescue
I received your wonderful package of goodies today. It will be so nice to replace all of my worn out bedding with some pretty new items! My old bedding will be recycled to our wildlife rescues. The work that you do is so wonderful and a true blessing to the ferret community. Thank you for everything that you do!
From: Lisa Vaughn
Wow! Thank you so much for all the bedding. Our rescues love the bed hammock combo, but we didn’t have enough to provide them for everyone. Now everyone has one. Everything sent is being used. I am so happy to see that big’ol Brutus fits comfortably as do our bonded pairs. The sling is an awesome design. All the humans and ferrets at Navarre Ferret Rescue send you a heartfelt thank you.
From: Kathy of Sammy’s Clubhouse Spokane Ferret Rescue and Education
I can’t thank you enough for the generous gift of hammocks and the perfect comfort sling. Our old man Henry just had to try it out after I opened the box. You all do such a wonderful thing. I am truly greatful for all that you have and will do for the ferret community. Thank you
From: Angela Showalter
