As you may know, Rhett and Co make a large range of ferret bedding, in a wide range of colours and patterns. If you don't, then check out my earlier feature that I did for their website http://ferretdook.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/rhett-co-bedding-for-ferrets-of-all.htmlI was tempted to buy a cuddle cup from them, which I did! The cuddle cups are cup or bowl shaped beds, made from a really soft high quality anti-pill polar fleece. The bed is around 10" wide, perfect for a couple of fuzzies like mine to snuggle up in! You can of course have one made to a specific size to suit your needs, just contact them with any queries. It has sturdy sides that support your ferret inside the bed, and helps it to hold it's shape, but they are not so sturdy that they are uncomfortable to rest a chin on! The sides are around 4 1/2" high.
As you can see from the photo above, the cuddle cup comes with its own matching cushion and and jingle toy. Unfortunately my boys prefer to throw the cushion out of the bed before they sleep in it! But I keep putting it back in there anyway! So not only do my ferrets get a work out pulling the cushion from the bed, but they have somewhere warm and cosy to cuddle up in afterwards!
The cuddle cup is padded throughout for extra luxurious comfort. As with all Rhett and Co bedding the cuddle cup is made from pet safe materials and fire retardant stuffing.
You can choose to have the bed as a free standing model or a hanging one. You just need to indicate which you would prefer when you place your order. I chose to have mine free standing, so that I could use it inside or outside the cage easily. The free standing bed comes with a spring clip attached to a durable fabric tab. This enables you to fix the bed to the side of the cage to keep it in one place. The fixings that are used with the free standing cuddle cup are a 2mm split ring with a 5mm clip. The hanging cup will have the larger size fixings that are used with most of the other beds such as hammocks. These are 3mm split rings with 5mm clips.
There are lots of colours to choose from including: Rainbow bears, Camo, pigs n bunnies and Tiger print. I chose the Jungle pattern, which has a red background and animals such as Crocodiles, Zebra, Toucan and lions in the foreground.
It is a really cute little bed and is such a bargain. It is priced at £12.50, which includes the bed itself, the cushion, the jingle toy and all straps/clips that are needed to secure it to the cage. Postage in the UK is free no matter how much (or how little) you order. Shipping to the United States is £8, again no matter how much is purchased. Other international customers should contact Rhett and Co for a shipping quote. International customers can now easily work out how much products will cost them using the on-site currency converter tool, which can be found on the homepage.
