Subject: Ferret ate bedding and died

I had 3 ferrets. My youngest got very sick over the weekend. Final
diagnose (from an xray) was that he ingested something and had a
blockage. There were no options but to have him put down. He was
only 3 years old.

I used old bed sheets to line their cage and for them to cuddle
under. I've noticed holes in them where they/he has eaten it and has
shown up again in the litter box. I believe that this is what got

My question is, what do you use for bedding? I've tried baby flannel
sheets, old t-shirts, bed sheets and they eat each of them.

Please help me, they love to cuddle under something, and I'm so
scared for the other 2.

Thank you.
