Ok, so me and my wife have decided that it's time to get a glider. A friend has two and I liked them my wife think they are too cute. We have been together 7 years and we feel like we are ready. I have been doing research for like 4 months in my spare time. We have an opportunity to get a pair of girls that are about 18 months. We have what we would need for them mostly. Waiting for some stuff in the mail. My only concern is bonding. My research says Joey's bond better but I have a big heart and wanna give the 2 girls a good home.

08/08/17 08:23 PM Rescue or purchase from breeder opinions

Hi, my family and I are wanting to add a pair of new family members in the next few months and would like your opinion. these will be our first gliders, so naturally, we are nervous about finding the right fit. As a family, we tend to adopt the older, goofy, hard to adopt out kind of pets. Lol. We have researched all kinds of glider rescues and breeders and would appreciate anyones opinions one way or another on what would be best for a first time owner. TIA!

New mom and grandma here! We just welcomed home our babies a week ago! All is going well and just had play time tonight in the spare bedroom with the whole family (3 of us ) It was the best ever! My question is, we will be leaving in 2 weeks for a 3 week trip in the motorhome, our two little ones will be going with us with our two little dogs. Is there anything extra I need to be thinking of to make our trip a success? I packed a big portable kennel for the dogs to put them up so we can have free time with the suggies. I Can pack frozen food in the freezer and their normal cage (until our bigger one gets here ) but any other travel advice would be great!

07/21/17 05:49 PM Hi everyone!!!

Hi everyone!! My boyfriend Zach and I recently became proud parents of a little standard gray boy Roux and a lovely little lady Aspen, who's a white faced blonde. Everyone on this forum seems so knowledgeable and nice!! I'd really appreciate any advice or info anyone would like to share. We've only had them for about 5 weeks and I feel like one of those crazy first time mom's that over researches everything, buys too much, and and... well I'm TERRIFIED my babies won't bind with me.. amongst a million other things like omg have did zach leave the toilet seat up etc

07/09/17 08:52 PM Considering getting a glider, any advice?

So I am considering getting a glider, it will be a fair bit of time before I am serious about getting one as I am caring for a family member, and don't want to stress him with a new pet.

At the end of the year though I am planning on getting my own place and am wanting a pet. In the past I've had all manner of animals from cats, dogs to rabbits, ferrets, rats, and hamsters. Most of the places I am looking do not allow cats/dogs but seem fine with small animals so I was at first considering a rat or hamster. Though so many small animals seem to have such short life spans, I cant stand to lose my pets so soon.

A friend suggested sugar gliders to me because they are small and long lived, plus they're nocturnal like so many of my family members say I am (my bed time tends to be 6am)

Anyways I am rambling (sorry) so the main things I want to ask are.
1) Can older homeless gliders still bond with someone new.
2) What sort of health issues should I expect.
3) What sort of exercise/play activity do they need
4) How much out of cage time is best? (most people seem to just have the gliders hanging on them)
5) Any suggestions on what sort of diet is best for them? (Lot of controversy in that area)
6) How loud is the bark, and how bad is the bite? (I've been badly bitten by big animals but bites from small animals tend to worry me most because I've never been bitten by my ferrets, rats or hamsters before. So I am unsure what to expect.)
7) If I do get a glider, where would be the best place in the Clearwater/Tampa Florida area be? I see a lot of people on craigslist, but I've never been a fan of Quick Buck Breeders.
