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.”

Thank You!
The box of bedding arrived and it’s so wonderful and so much more than I expected! Huge thank you to the Crafty Weasels team!! The large, tough hammocks and sleep sacks especially are so perfect for the mink �� the ferrets will love these as well! I’ve taken a few photos to share! Thank you again ��
The black mink is “Smaug”, he was an orphan, found tiny and scared next to his deceased mum. He was super happy to be the one to “open” the package! And is already enjoying several hammocks and a sleep sack!
The creme (palomino) colored mink is Ember. After escaping a fur farm, she was trapped by a man who tried to sell her illegally. Several rescues networked together to get animal control involved, and she was safely delivered to a wildlife rehabilitation facility before eventually being transferred here to MMR. She doesn’t really use her cage much, so instead I offered her two sleep sacks and a hammock on the ground & she instantly started running off with them to use them in her nests- she absolutely loves them!
Thank you thank you thank you!
When it comes to fur, mink wear it best.

I must apologize things have been running behind around here lately with this thing called life and with kids being sick and we totally just forgot in making a post.
The kids received a package the other day full of new bedding and carrier hammocks and they make your carrier into a very comfortable ride for your kiddos when you have to travel or going into the vet they also got some sets of beautiful sleep sets and the wanton hammocks and they love those cause they can burrow down deep and have a dark place.
The last picture is what Feliks claimed as he loves the extra large sleep sacks as he can just crawl into them and cover up as you know Feliks is crippled and can’t climb into a regular hanging hammock so the extra big sacks works well.
We are grateful for such things and would like to take this moment and give thanks to Florence Love and The Crafty Weasels for such a beautiful gift of bedding for these kids here at RRRS.
Folks there’s some things that are just special and for us this bedding is special as you can see the pride and love sewn into each stitch and it’s tonka truck tough.
Thank you.

RMMR and all our rescue kids, both mink and ferret would love to thank the Crafty Weasels for their donation of bedding so lovingly made. I tried getting photos whenever I could over the last week, but everyone pretty much told me to go stuff myself as they’re too busy being comfy to pose for photos and I ended up with countless bluuuurs.
Bedding made with such love simply cannot be resisted!

Woo Hoo … thank you so much!!!  WOW!!  I’m sorry it has taken me so long to get to you … I’ve had a migraine all week and have been out of it.  I honestly didn’t know what to expect and I was just BLOWN AWAY!!!  The fuzzbutts thought it was Christmas here … the older ones climbed into the box and snuggled in and sniffed around and then went right to sleep after finding “just the right one” … we’ve NEVER had ANYTHING like this been given to us before … it brought tears to my eyes.

Not sure if you saw my posts on facebook but the bedding box arrived yesterday.  I haven’t been able to unpack it because as soon as I opened it I had furry helpers.  First the ferrets were checking out the box, then the cats, then Ebony decided it was the softest bed in the house, then this morning at 4 when I got up, Serena my 23 lb lhasa mix was sleeping in the box on top of the bedding!  I was going to go through it before I left for work but the ferrets were back in it again so hoping tonight I get the opportunity.  From what I did go through, the top bedding and toys, everything is beautifully made and looks so comfy!  Thank you and the crafty weasels group so very much!

The huge box of beautiful plentiful bedding arrived on Friday. You sent so much! Thank you! Most will be put away till cooler weather and the rest will be used throughout the summer. I put the blue plaid hammock in this morning for Podo our 7.5 yr old blind girl. When it gets cooler I’ll put the barrel in her sleeping cage too. She came to me about a year ago because her two boys were not paying any attention to her and she was sleeping most of the time. Her cage is at the head of my bed and she still sleeps most of the time but is doing well. At first she didn’t care for other ferrets but two of the oldster girls have managed to sneak into hammocks with her when she is sleeping and she lets them stay. In fact I rarely find her sleeping alone these days. I did put one of the WonTon flower hammies on the floor and Toby (ferret) got it and Ebony (cat) played with him as he moved around under cover. I also put one of the sleep sacks on the floor in the back bedroom. That room gets the warmest in the afternoon and the floow is cool so I’m sure that sleep sack will get a lot of use there.  The cats were very happy with the new bedding as well. They sleep in the ferret hammocks too even though they are too big to fit properly but don’t seem to mind that they hang over the sides. The toys are enjoyed by all. The dogs claimed the fabric ropes but it wasn’t long before Salem (ferret) found them and toted them down to the basement where he sleeps. Even the box was a hit with the ferrets and kitties who wrestled over who got to get in it! Everyone is free roam and they all share nicely so a big thank you from everyone!Thanks so much from all of us!Warm hugs! tle


Thank you Thank you Thank you for the wonderful gifts for the kids! Not at all necessary but very appreciated by all. I hung the new wonton immediately and by morning HB ll, Dweasey ll and fat little St.Nick were all crammed together in it. So cute, fatty Nick’s butt and little hind feet were hanging out. I don’t know why ferret back feet when upside down are so cute to me but they always get me when they’re oozing over something and their back feet are the last to slide over/in—–slooowly.In the middle of the night( the sleeping triple midwest ferret nation cage is in our bedroom) I heard somebody rolling around in the new barrel. Probably Dookie. That man loves his barrels.So thank you Crafty Weasels. Brightened my day.Love,L

Hello Florence! I just wanted to let you know that we got the bedding here at Kings ferret rescue! I’m sorry I did not let you know sooner, things have been extremely hectic, either way I want to thank you so very much from the bottom of not only my heart, but from all of the ferrets as well! You guys went absolutely above and beyond. what you guys do is absolutely wonderful. I know I not only speak for myself, but all the shelters that you guys help when I say keep doing what you’re doing, you guys are truly angels on Earth. I’ve attached a few pictures of some of the bedding set up as well as some of the ferrets enjoying the bedding! thank you again so very much. Please let me know if there is anything that we can do to thank you guys for wonderful this wonderful thing you amazing ladies have done. I hope you don’t mind, but I also attached a picture of one of the reasons we’ve been quite busy… Our foster dog had puppies! Anyway, please let me know if there’s absolutely anything we can do for you guys. We hope you all have a wonderful week, and thank you again.

Thought you would like to see that the barrel is a big hit!!!  There were more inside toward the bottom of the barrel.

Thank  –  Mason

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 goodiesHugs all aroundMason Lowery and  the Indiana Critters
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!

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!

Dear Florence,

                           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!

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,

 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

Hi Florence,
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.!

I have a couple ferrets that “love” plastic bottles so the covered bottles with rattles were grabbed right away!!
Oh & the braided toy as well!! lol
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!!
Bless all you ladies for the time & effort you put into this!!!
Again THANK YOU so much!!!!

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.

“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.

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

We received the package of bedding today and are so thankful to you and all your volunteers for such beautiful bedding.  Winters in Colorado can be very cold and the bedding feels so comforting and warm.  During this season of giving, of sharing and of hope, we thank all of you for giving of your time, sharing your talents and hoping that all shelters ferrets around the country are kept warm and safe.

Thank you so much for helping us out, I really appreciate it. Tell Karen the crinkle sacs passed- inspector Frankie loves them. Frankie (my paralyzed ferret) has already tested out the crinkle sacs and stashed the toy you sent.
Please thank everyone who worked on the items you sent us- every piece will be used – we use an insane amount of linens every day.
Thanx to all again- the ferrets are enjoying the bedding.
Happy Holidays to everyone Cathy

I am happy to say that the pocket hammies they sent us several years ago are still in use after many, many washings, as well as the adorable sleepysacks! I know how much time, dedication, and financing such a project takes.
Crafty Weasels, for YEARS now, you have given & given to shelters in need. You`ve bought the material, spent the gas money to drive from afar on sewing day, and even footed the bill for the postage to send it. All at no cost to the shelter ferrents. All out of your love for the animals. All with little to no recognition… A simple thank you note is not enough. You cheered up a shelter mom who had sat up all night with a sick baby. Getting that box was encouragement to go on. Seeing the little ones all cuddled up in their new pocket hammies made a ferret dad smile. But most of all, you gave warmth & comfort to so many sweet, sweet little babies—everywhere.
Maybe you don`t think much about the bedding you worked on, after it leaves your hands–but believe me, it makes a wonderful difference in lives, both ferret & human, for a very long time. Thank you, so very much…
May God bless you richly. Love, Zoo

Because of the generosity, love and overwhelming caring you all pour into creating such wonderful bedding, another shelters babies  will be warmed and comforted tonight.  And, another shelter mom can rest a little easier knowing they have what is needed.    You people are so awesome!!!  I can’t wait to get the sling…  Thank you all so much for all you do to ease our burdens and worries.  I think I can speak on behalf of all shelters when I say all of you are  really appreciated more than you will ever know!  Thank you soooooooooooo much!!!

I just wanted to let you know that the package made amazing time and arrived today!!!  Everything is absolutely wonderful!  Thank you all SO much for what you do.  No store bought bedding can even compare to the quality, cuteness and comfort of these items.  Our ferrets are going to just be beside themselves.  :)   We will definitely pass along your cards to adopters and anyone else that expresses interest.  Thanks again!!

Imagine my surprise to go to the post office today and find a wonderful present for our shelter kids.  It seems bedding is always in such short supply these days, with the huge influx of homeless fur kids we have had.  It is terrible that this economy is hurting so many innocents, confused little pets who have no idea why their owners have dumped them in a shelter. I love the little sling, your timing is perfect!!!  Recently, a little six year boy came to us.  We did not expect him to live, the other ferrets in his business were just walking all over his lifeless body in their cage.  He was rushed to the vet, and diagnosed with an inoperable spinal tumor that is most likely malignant.  I did not have the heart to send him to the bridge…not yet…something in his eyes begged for understanding.  I had him put on steroids and pain management.  That was three weeks ago….today, Mr. Bigglesworth has put on weight and is able to drag himself…rather quickly and efficiently, on his hips.  He stashes toys and chases the kitty now.  The light in his eyes and the love in his kisses tell me I chose right.  Biggs follows me all around the house…when he can keep up.  He LOVES his new sling…cause now he can follow shelter mom all over and beg for treats, which he has become very good at LOL!  I am attaching a picture of our sleepy Biggs…and my sincere thanks for your thoughtfulness.

What a great surprise to receive a huge box of bedding from the sewing wizards at Crafty Weasel Bedding! The bedding is beautiful and is greatly appreciated by myself, my rescue partner, and all the little ones in our care.

OMG TY /cry. Our washer blew up. These were sorely needed. Thank you so much. We had to help my 10 yr old, Pontoof, to the bridge a few days ago and I have another one about 9 going down and the sling is badly needed.
Thank you, thank you. I am crying tears of joy. I am just overwhelmed and very emotional right now. You Crafty Weasels are a godsend and when and if I ever get caught up I will do what I can to help you. Maybe send you the ferret Christmas stockings I make to include in your Christmas send outs to shelters for the director/owner. They’re awful cute. But I can’t sew. I wish I could. Please expect your hand/paw made thank you card in the mail as soon as I can get a handle on things.
The box was glowing w/love before I even opened it! And trust me I had help doing it…some of the eggs were grabbed before I could even determine what color they were. Only caught a glimpse of them being carted off very speedily to a hidey hole before some other furball got the chance! We appreciate you all soooo much. You have no clue. TY again.

I don’t know what to say other than a massive thank you to all the people at Crafty Weasels. Winter has just set in here and it is FREEZING, in fact we have had two carpet sharks with colds already and it is only going to get colder, they are saying it’s going to be one of the coldest winters on record. So from all of us here at VDFT, thank you so much!! Nikki

We just received the boxes of bedding. Wow! I can’t thank you enough. The pocket hammies and floor mats are just what we need. I can’t wait to start switching out the older bedding.  Please thank everyone involved in this wonderful project.  Would it be alright to add a link to your website on our website? I’d love to be able to send people your way.  Please express my gratitude to all involved. What you are doing makes my heart a little lighter, knowing there are still people willing to make sacrifices for these wonderful little critters.  Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.

I got the lovely bedding. It is great to have bedding in the cages that is soft and not falling apart. Everyone seems sooo much happier and sleep so much better. Thanks so much. Deanna Price

The package arrived and last night I put the new hammocks in the cages.  The boys should feel like they’re in a palace of luxury today!  They fit very well in the cages and the plushness is amazing.
Thank you for the extras.  I  used the sling for Skippy last night. He’s an oldster and has adrenal and insulinoma.  Somehow he got in the bottom bin of one of the big cages (I suspect he had ‘help’ since he coudln’t do it himself) and because he is blind he couldn’t get out because he ran into the high sides in every direction.  His glucose was low from stress so he spent some time in the sling, then after he has an accident in it later in the evening it went down to the washer while he slept in the sleep sack.
The hammocks are perfect and I’m sure both cages of boys are very comfy today.
Thank you so very much! Warm hugs! Troy Lynn Eckart

(A few months ago someone posted a news article on the FML about a military man that loved ferrets that had just died in Afghanistan. He and his wife lived in California and they had pics of him with his ferrets. We did a bit of research and got their address and sent a message to his widow letting her know that the Crafty Weasels wanted to give her a gift for her ferrets to honor her husband who had died on foreign soil so far away from his ferret family.
This is the message that we received.)
This Nikki Barnett and I just wanted to say thank you so much for the ferret beds! Kodo, Angus and Mickey absolutely love the beds. I put them in right away and all 3 immediately left their old beds and have been using yours since. I was so touched by your gift to them, our ferrets were Scott’s favorite pets. We were waiting until after his time in the Army was done before we had kids of our own so our pets are our children. Scott would be so happy to know that somewhere out there someone was thinking about his beloved ferrets enough to make them beds that they are so happy with.
Our first ferret, Kodo, the white ferret, was his baby and Scott was always so worried about him and as he got older when Scott was away in training Scott would ask me to check on him before bed each night and make sure he was warm enough because he was always so worried about him. Kodo has taken a liking to the hanging hammock you sent, he loved his hammock but he also loved to hide in fleece fabric so this one provides him with both of his favorite things and keeps him very warm. When I look into the cage and see him curled up in it with only his little face sticking out all I can picture is Scott’s smiling face because I know he is looking down happy that someone out there other than me understood his bond with our ferrets. Thank you again for the beds, that was very sweet of you to send them. To me and Scott that would be just like someone sending a quilt to a child who lost a parent and I can’t thank you enough, the ferrets really enjoy them.

Thanks again! Nikki Barnett

The box arrived yesterday!!  I love everything!!  And that shoulder sack will come in handy because I have a lot of sick ferrets that I carry around all day in my arms.  I can’t even express how much I appreciate this.  Everything is made so well and they are so cozy.
I’m going to show the bedding to the people that adopt from me, I’m going to give them your card, and I’m going to recommend that they contact you to purchase their bedding.  I’m also going to post a thank you on my website to all of you, and I’m going to put a link on my site directly to your site.
Please thank everyone that helped out. I really, really appreciate all of their hard work and dedication. Sincerely, Lorri

Thank you so much, all of it was beautiful and much needed. I am so glad and I know the ferrets are just loving it. It came in great time as I just helped another rescue that is downsizing and I received some of her babies bringing my total to 28 ferrets. What you do is such a God send and the rescue is loving it. Keep up the great work and God bless all of you. Ashley Jarrells

[Regarding a donation to help with their raffle] We had no idea we were receiving them and were so surprised!!!! They are soo nice and we’re very very pleased w/the quality and the thoughtfulness that u sent them to us.they glow w/all the love that is sewn into them. We would looove to keep them ourselves. (that is the hard part of all of these wonderful donations)…but we’re not going to allow ourselves participation since it is to help us. Whoever decided to stick that whippy 3 ended thing made out of fleece caused a chaotic free for all that has lasted a week in this house. Lol!!. The fursnakes (even the 10 yr old one) are actually FIGHTING over it. I am having a hard time keeping it where I know where it is . Lol..ya’ll have no idea how much joy you have brought the babies here w/that thing. What is it called? Lol. I so wish I could sew. Thank you soo much and your hand/paw made thank you  card is in the mail already.

Please forgive me for not contacting you sooner to thank you & let you know that the donation package of goodies arrived safe & sound weeks ago! I have been without internet access & am disabled. My sincere thank you for all of the fabulous new sleep sacks, toys & medical supplies! All were put into use immediately! Had been awhile since my business had received fancy new fleece lined hammies & sleep sacks & I have 14 ferts that love ya’ll very much for your gracious donation & for thinking of us & providing us with such needed aid!

We have received the bedding and we greatly appreciate it!!!  I took it to the meeting last night and everyone was very happy with it!  Some of it was passed to our foster parents and the rest came back to me as I am the one with the most ferrets going in and out of the shelter.  Also when we adopt out if a ferret has a favorite hammock or sack we always try to send it along with them to their new home.  We feel it helps them with the transition of a new home.  Not sure if it really does but we like to think so.  Bedding is always in great need because of that.
We will put the sling to test on Sunday at our fundraiser.  Our little Winken will be the test subject for it.  He is an older guy and blind as can be.  He loves to snuggle.
Again BIG THANKS to everyone who donates their time and talents to the ferret cause!  We sincerely appreciate it!  Crystal L. Walko

Thank You!!! All of the fuzzies at Dodger’s Den thank you too. They love their new bedding. I used the sling last week with an older fuzzy (Amber) that was under the weather. I loved it because she was with me all the time, and I was able to tend to the others without leaving her. A thousand thank yous. Thank you so much and God Bless, Bevis, Theresa & our 17 fuzzies

OMG but this is AWESOME bedding as usual. Such lovely colors & soft/warm hammies/sacks to match. My crew is ever so thankful to all you caring ladies.
The sling for the sick baby is just a blessing.It will sure be used & I wish I’d had it with Nancy. This will help so many shelter ops out there.
To all of the Crafty Weasels, many heartfelt thanks go to you for all the love you put into the bedding. And it sure holds up to many washings. Sandi Robinson

I wanted to let you guys know I received the box of bedding today, and I am speechless. The ferrets are not however, and they are sending you many dooks of excitement and delight!!!!
This is an amazing and wonderful thing that you guys are doing to help, and it means more to me than you can imagine. At times you see so many bad things with the way people treat their pets, it is easy to forget how much good is out there too.  Thank you for helping to remind me that there are many truly caring people out there. Caring people who truly want to help, and I thank you for that.
I give bedding out with each ferret that goes to a new  home so they take something familiar and comforting with them. Doing this I truly believe is a good thing, helping them adjust to their new home while retaining something familiar, but it does at times get expensive. It is worth it though, and this wonderful box filled with bedding will help so much! Thank you guys so much, it will be put to very good use. Daphne
