12/15/17 05:12 PM Hi! I need some help


I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this.

I had a pair of sugargliders, but one of them passed away two days ago. Now, I have a single 14yr old male who is blind. He finally started eating again, before he was so depressed he wouldn't even taste his favorite treats. However, now he only sleeps, nibbles on his food, and runs. He doesn't want to leave his cage or even the pouch for the most part. The first day after Princess died he wouldn't leave me at all. What can I do for him? Would trying to find another senior glider be good for him? I don't know if he's too old to accept another, or if there is such a thing as too old in the glider world.

12/03/17 07:17 PM Third set of Gliders but here to stay!

I thought I had completed enough research to handle gliders. The first one I bought was a standard color and 12 weeks OOP. I knew he needed a buddy so I searched for a second one and found a tiny 6 week OOP. I nervously took the little baby but worried it would not make it as it was so much more fragile than the one I had. I nurtured her and she thrived! I soon had two hand tamed wonderful babies.
Then, I got sick and they were something I had to let go-I cried when the lady picked them up and I explained that she would need to neuter the boy-or learn to raise gliders which is not a good idea for a first time owner. She left, and with her went my little buddies! I was heart broken!
I located a pair by accident in a small town near here. The person had never worked with the girls. They were grippy and finally I was able to tame down one but not both. I decided I couldn't do it and so I rehomed these two. At the time I was having another health issue that required a hip replacement.
I dreamt of my first two glidders and finally decided, I had to have a tame pair. I drove to White Settlement in Texas and a wonderful breeder sold me my two males. They are precious.
I work full time, I have a couple of aquariums, 3 small dogs and two large lumbering outside (mostly) dogs and Fred and Barnie-my little hand tamed gliders!
Thanks for allowing me to be a part of the forum! And I look forward to continuing to learn about gliders and others experiences!

12/02/17 06:05 PM Is a glider right for me?

So my fiancé and I were shopping today and came across Pocket Pets in a mall. After talking with the guy we walked away to give it some thought. After looking up the company we decided against getting one from that seller. However, we're still interested in getting one but have some questions.

1. How loud are they during the night? Sleeps pretty important with the work I'm in.

2. My work schedule is pretty different. I work 10-12 24 hour shifts a month (not in a row). I know they require a good amount of attention so I want to make sure that's okay.

3. I have a 24x24x48 metal screened cage. Would that be okay for them?

Thanks for the help!

11/28/17 10:03 PM Hi!

Hi there!

I'm a new member here, but not new to having gliders (though I haven't had any in awhile)! I've got three babies coming to me next week and couldn't be more excited.

I tend to be more of a lurker in forums since life keeps me busy (I'm a veterinary student), but I look forward to trying to keep up and being a part of the forums here!

11/09/17 06:07 PM Hi new to forum.

Hello. I'm new to the forum here but not to gliders. Had a small colony of them when I was a teen and just picked up 2 new babies tonight. I can not wait to get to know everyone!

10/19/17 03:36 PM First time glider owner looking for wisdom

Hi we’re new owners to. We’re rescuing a pair of females from Wisconsin Sugar Glider Rescue. We got a nice 21*23*31” HQ flight cage, talked to Matt for the Ec leaves. (Side note Matt’s doing good, he’s 30 miles away from the wildfires) We researched the diet and got a great recipe. We’re ordering the mineral and sups from Amazon and the Glider Wheel too. So I think we’ll be ready when we get them next week
