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.”
Many blessings to you and all your sewing group.

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

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

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!

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
