It’s a Very Merry Caylee Christmas!

Every year, Christmas falls on December 25th but the Spirit of Christmas is more than just 1 day.  Christmas is a Mood, a expression of Love and Hope, a Season of Giving and Sharing.  This year, Ferret Dreams placed only 9 ferrets on the Ferret Giving Tree so that other ferrets from other rescues would have a better chance of being picked and receiving much needed supplies, toys, bedding and monetary donations from their Santas.  That meant that about 20 of our permanent residents weren’t on the Ferret Giving Tree this past year.

One day, Caylee Montgomery, who has adopted several ferrets from Ferret Dreams Rescue, was visiting and we were discussing why we had only placed 9 ferrets on the Giving Tree this year.  She was moved to hear why we had placed only 9 ferrets and in her heart, wanted to do something special for the other 20+ permanent residents here at the rescue.

Several weeks later, a few packages arrived with a variety of bedding for our ferrets.  If that wasn’t enough, Caylee arrived on Saturday, January 10th with a half dozen boxes filled with more bedding and toys.  There were over 50 items including hammocks, sleep sacks and blankets.  In another huge box was an endless supply of crochet eggs of various shapes and sizes, including the giant crochet egg that is already a popular toy here at the rescue.  And if that wasn’t enough, Caylee baked some home made Christmas Cookies and included a bottle of wine for Matthew and Lee.

We want to thank Caylee for taking it upon herself and making Christmas extra special this year at Ferret Dreams Rescue.  She has a heart of Gold for our ferrets, especially the elderly and sick ones.  On this special visit, she got to spend some valuable time with these special ferrets.

A Very Merry Caylee Christmas Indeed!  Here are a few pics:
