Yesterday at 07:50 PM Ziggy, Zelda, and Zoey
My name is Alex Kim, about 5/6 years ago I purchased my first Sugar Glider Ziggy thinking he was going to be a cute pet to have. I purchased him from a pet store and upon taking him home and joining this forum I quickly realized how special Sugar Gliders are and how much of a responsibility I now had in order to properly care for their nutritional and emotional needs. I then purchased two sugar gliders Zoey and Zelda. I loved them all, I took all the advice and guidance I could gather from this site and am grateful for those that helped me at the time. I would give them fresh fruit daily, the proper nutrients and love. However the more knowledge I gained about these beautiful creatures the more I realized I would never be able to give them the life they deserve unless I devoted my life to them. Like many of the beautiful people on this site have chosen to do. When I realized this I knew id have to find someone who would give them as much if not more love than I could. I found a woman in New York who said she had a whole room for them in a larger house that they could be more free than the large cage I had to have them in most of the time. So I sent them to her for free, and moved on hoping they would now be in a better forever home. But I had a deep bond with them and instead of honoring that by constantly checking on them to see how they were doing, I buried them deep in my heart. I can no longer bare to not know how they are doing. If anyone remembers me and can help in anyway it would mean the world to me. Thank you

04/12/19 04:24 PM Non Joey Bonding?
Hi guys, first post and three days into my suggie journey with a lovely little mosaic girl I've named Roo. I had a choice between her (9 mos oop) or a 10 week old. I love her personality, so I picked her from a private breeder. I'll add another so she doesn't get lonely later (no hating just want to focus on one at a time, but I digress). So far, the pros to getting a non baby I've noticed are: She doesn't crab in her cage at all, or when I picked her pouch out this morning for bonding (currently my hand is attached to her and she actually wakes up and grooms me, then goes back to dreaming... presently licking my thumb). She has also taken an interest in my two cats, and barks at them from her cage (no crabbing, assuming its just to get their attention since they go nose to nose through the cage and she eats fine around them). She readily takes treats from my hands directly, and I know all these are amazing for having known each other 3 days, but there's one thing I want advice on.

((TLDR;)) The only thing we're struggling with (trust is kind of a factor but I also think her age might play into the new environment deal) is not wanting to come out of the pouch/cage, or avoiding my hand/me like the plague if she tries to venture out. What's the best way to work around this, and is it better in practice at night or when shes sleepy?

Hello all. So i picked up 2 young girls at a show last weekend and have let them sit in their cage with me talking to them for a while and just sticking my hand in with them. I have been planning to take them with me to work " i work at a computer." My questions are about what i should bring with me and them when we are at work. If anyone has good insights please let me know.

I dont plan on having them out a whole lot at work just with me in a zippered pouch. and maybe out while I am on my different breaks through out the day.

Oh My girls names are Ino, and Usagi. Ino is a mosaic, and Usagi is a standard grey. they are both very friendly and enjoy cuddling with my hand in the bonding pouch.

Thank you in advance for the help. I do have most everything else figured out with just a few confusions here and there which I will be asking about as i remember them.

04/08/19 09:01 AM Northeast Florida breeders?
I was wondering if anyone knows of good breeders in Northeast Florida? I remember there used to be one in Jacksonville, not sure if there still is.

I'm thinking of maybe getting my future gliders from The Pet Glider but I'm exploring more local options too.

Not planning on getting any gliders for awhile, just looking for breeders for now. smile

03/19/19 01:55 AM Suggested research?
Hi! I have been researching suggies for a while and I have run out of places to look! I want to research as much as possible! I have watched YouTube channels such as, “cataleah”, “awesome sugar glider mommy”, “Lauren”, “Elissa brianne”, and others. I have read too many articles than I can count. Does anyone know any other youtubers or articles for me to check out? I want to be as prepared as possible for my babies❤️ Thank you so much in advance!

03/18/19 03:12 PM Hi all ~

I'm new to this site, and I'll soon be a glider owner as well. I've been wanting a pair for at least 2 years, but like the geek that I am, I had to do my research and let things "sink in" before I start shopping for a breeder/gliders. Like a lot of other people have probably said, there's TONS of info online -- but determining what's false and what's accurate is very challenging... So even though I've done my research, I'm not sure if any of what I've learned is legit. (Ugh)
I think I've got the bases covered, but if I'm missing anything or if you have any inputs as to expectations etc, please let me know!

I plan on getting 2 females to start with, and if things go well -- I'd get another pair -- maybe 1 of which will be male if I'm feeling brave. wink I've heard the males tend to mark stuff and therefore "smell" more even when neutered, so I was holding off on getting males for now.

I've also got 3 other (neutered) pets in my home -- a 4yr old dog and two 13yr old cats. I plan on adding their scent (and the rest of the household's) onto the bonding pouches and fleece stuff so that the gliders can be familiar with us all before I start doing the physical (supervised) introductions.

I've either lined up or have already bought these things and am not sure if there's anything else I'm missing (besides the furries):
[*]congo cage
[*]cage-cleaning supplies - what's a glider-safe cleaning agent? Although bleach will kill germs, I don't want to kill the furries in the process.
[*]fleece cage set - should I get 2 sets, so I can have a set in use while washing the other...?
[*]bonding pouch -- is 2 enough? I figured I could wash one while using the other. Or do I need more for a pair of gliders?
[*]nightlight -- I'm trying to find a red LED one, just in case they need it.
[*]other enrichment/foraging toys
[*]liners for the cage tray -- what do you all recommend to use?
[*]food -- there's so much controversy with the different diets out there so I'm not sure what to do. Worst case, I figured I could wait and see what the breeder was currently feeding them and go from there. Or should I handle this another way?
[*]e-collar/e-jacket -- which one would be better? Or is this only necessary if you've got a male to be neutered?
[*]emergency kit -- what should be included in the kit (other than the e-jacket/collar)?
[*]veterinarian-- I have one on my list that's experienced but they're about an hour away, so I'm still waiting to hear back from my regular vet (15min away) to see if they have any glider experience.
