Wee Companions is always grateful for any hammock donations. At any given time we take care of over 100 rats, between adoptables and sanctuary rats, plus 31 chinchillas, 100 guinea pigs and a few rabbits.

I have added Tipsy Tails to the rescue list. :)

Kavid, I was wondering if you'd prefer donations other than hammocks. I was looking at your blog and your donation list and it seems you're in need of other supplies (more than hammocks?). Let me know and I'll make a note and see who is willing, if that's what you'd like.

Rattiesfan: I looked at the website, and couldn't really find info on their rescue work. The link seemed like just a rodent club. Is there anyway I can get more info? Thanks!

We definitely appreciate hammocks but if someone wants to donate off our list we would appreciate that as well!

I'm still in. I'll start sewing between orders this week. If the rescue I get is ok with gentle used, but kind of ghetto looking hammocks, I have plenty, lol. I have quite a few old, no sew hammocks from before I got my sewing machine. I no longer use them, and all have ben used no more than twice, if a rescue would like them as well.

Lol! I have quite a few, actually. I found more as I was going through stuff. They don't have grommets or anything. I think I used pipe cleaners to hang them, which works just fine. :]

Ty, I can donate to two smaller rescues, instead of one large rescue, too. So take that into consideration. I can just split the large amount of hammocks in half. :]

I've started making hammocks. They're not amazing and they're made with repurposed fabrics, but they're something! I'm also taking this as an opportunity to practice on hammocks I haven't tried making yet. I've tried my hand at a cuddle cup and surely need practice on that one!

Unstuffed cuddle cups work well as liners for cages that have the cage sitting in a pan, where the cage can be lifted out, such as Martins, All Living Things, etc.  Just take the measurements of the cage and cut the fabric accordingly.  I have done this, and even though the sides get chewed a little, the fleece stays put.

I've gotten a few hammocks put together for rescues, though I'm not sure who I'm sending to yet lol.

Today on Freecycle someone offered up some fleece scraps. It's a huge shopping bag full! I'm excited to go through it and see what goodies my rescues will be getting!

Hey guys, I will be doing tentative assignments of rescues to hammock makers around this weekend or by next week.

Rattiesix: thanks for the update! I'll keep in mind that you can do two small rescues.

I have a total of about 20 hammocks cut out, and will sew between orders and as my schedule allows. If you'd prefer to put me to a single rescue, or two smaller ones, or put me with someone who can also do a small amount for a rescue, we can combine and make it a larger donation. :P I'll try to get out and pick up some more fabric for hammocks, but that was all the extra I had lying around.

I'm either going crazy or I have bad memory. Why can't I find the modify button for the OP?

The Mods removed the modify button. You can only modify your post 15 minutes after you post it. There is a thread about it in the Random Chatter section. If you need them to change something your supposed to PM them.

Are we by chance gonna get assigned this weekend? I have a box almost ready to go out, but I'm leaving a little space incase the rescue I'm assigned to has a want list on their site and I'm able to add something additional that they need besides hammies. I can mail out pretty much as soon as I know! I'm so excited to do this!! It truly is more fun to give than receive. :BlueDumboSmile:

I'd like assignments before I start cutting and sewing too, that way I will be able to contact them and see what size hammocks they want (how it will fit their rats and their cages).  Though I haven't had time to do anything yet, so I can wait on assignments until after Thanksgiving.

I am so looking forward to the Black Friday sales though.

OMG-I'm feeling the pressure now.  I knew you would be assigning us any day but now it's here and I am nowhere near as organized as Summer, Neelia or Rattiessix.   :P

So tell me everyone, about how many hammocks do you expect to send and about when will you be sending them out.  I don't want to jip my rescue and have them wondering what they did to get stuck with my sorry butt!
