**Bumping This for 2011**

Here's the link for the Ferret Giving Tree 2011: http://www.ferretgivingtree.com/index.php

Each year, Ferret Shelters around the US can post up to 10 of their ferrets online in order to recieve gifts from "santas". You can read through their bios and pick a ferret to be a santa to.

While shelters do need food, medical supplies, and litter...they also need bedding and lots of it. Some of the ferrets in their shelters will remain there for the rest of their lives and a comfy blanket or hammock can make their lives a little better. Also, ferrets love crocheted eggs or fabric balls with jingle bells in them.

I figured that maybe some of the crafty people here would love to santa a shelter ferret. I know I'll be participating!

If you're new to ferrets, but would still like to help and have questions...feel free to PM me! Thanks for reading!

Is there a size for the crocheted eggs that would work best?  I've got a crap ton of yarn that would be perfect for these eggs, but I've never had a ferret, so I'm not sure what size would work best.

There is nothing on earth more entertaining than watching a pack of half-grown puppies playing in snow for the very first time.

Thanks for participating, Dawn!

Lissablair, here are some links about crochet eggs: http://www.craftown.com/cropat22.htm


I know absolutely nothing about crocheting, but hopefully these are helpful to you. Sorry it took me so long to respond!

And thanks for participating! Ferrets LOVE anything new. They are very grateful animals and I know they'll appreciate it!
