Yeah looking as much as I can cause part of the problem is he yells for help moving stuff almost every day. ( out of store to his sister store or storage)
I scored some pocket pet cage pans for the AZ glider Rescue , as well as travel collapsible cage that I got to find box and get shipped to them.

We found that my wife left the cage open on new years even and as a result Freya got a injured paw. still swollen but she being a trooper about the batryil and Met-cam ( to prevent infection and help with the pain some ) IF not better by tomorrow night making appointment for vet on friday.

Personally dealing with some depression ( from lost of job) but also realizing I may be able to get a proper Job cause the simple stuff that I been helping on a slower and lighter pace than other s ( makes me feel bad) but has me all hunched over and misarble with back pain. ( taken the strongest OC meds and not helping at all.)

I feel your heartache dealing with the seizures, my Merlin has them too. I'm finally certain his are related to anxiety, just not sure what to do about it (nor is my vet).

Good luck man, with gliders, health, & life.

Well Freya paw not broekn but is still swollen. (reminds me of a medical glove blown up) Vino seems to be doing ok I even took him with me to the vet thinking he might have a seizure and they could check him out. but he was more than happy with Freya in his company again and my shirt pocket when it was time for Freya to get an xray.

Well my wife decided to Put Luna and Digi up for adoption on craigslist. I am never agreeing to adopting the gliders back out. But I can understand her point they don't like to be handle they don't want to leave the cage ( unless we leave the door open) you cant really pet them. They are more less just decor in the cage they inhabit. they are prefect examples of how some gliders wont come around ( or they just don't like us ) they been like this for almost 4 years we had them,and the way the lady we got them from was like that why they were returned to her from the person she originally sold them to saying the female just don't like to interact at all. My wife tried tent time, the bathroom, and every way she can thing of or been suggested. ( they even pouch aggressive in a OE pouch ( crabbing and fleeing if you try to pet them. ) ) She like i hate to have to try and give these guys meds if they injure or sick. I have a feeling she will reduce our colonies down to the horde and the one pair if i let her. ( meaning that I have to give up Elda with Sammie and Sasha ( if she wont re-intro to the horde) if Iforced re-home them.

Don't know what to tell you. I don't have a spouse to answer to and my spouse if I were to get married would not tell me that either or he would be on the outside looking in.

Explains why I am not married.

I am somewhat fortunate, however I have been limited because we travel. Our RV cage is alittle smaller, and #3 glider would be a bit much I think.

I have attachment issues. Once something is accepted in our fold ( tailless squirrel in the yard, a car/ truck, comfy old shoes, it's winter and I still regret cutting the sleeves off me and the girls fav gross hoodie last summer). So if we did agree to get 1 more, if intros didn't work out, well another cage, then a buddy, the hideabed couch in RV would have to come out... Then more attachment issues...

dunno What do you do?

Dawn I think that my issue i am attached to their ways,/ I am also one that for the most part once i attached to it I dont want to get rid of it until it natural death.

With snakes and Gliders, I feel like if I going to take on that responsibility I want to be there until it end. This is why I dont want fancy cloths top of the line items or such. I rather spend the money on what the pet needs and do with out if i have too. Plus now with my mom now staying with us I have less time to do anything i might enjoy. But I do spend time with the gliders as much as i can .

My girls remind me of my childhood dog.. I was an only child in an adult world in the 1960's. We moved a lot, and my dog was my constant companion. When I felt I didn't have a friend in the world, my dog was there with a wagging tail, and no judgement. She stayed by my side. Like my dog, Fiona prefers being in her hoodie on me over sleeping in her cage with Dot. I love my alone time with her.

In the evening, Dot wants to play, and run around, play jump from human to curtain and back. She prefers her cage when she is done playing, but tolerates petting, and other humans during her playtime.

I'm not sure I could be a rescue. Like you , I get attached. I would worry about them when they left. (I had issues with giving puppies away too!)

great news so far Freya getting along with everyone as I put them in the pouch with her and the others, I not had any real fighting. Unless Momo starting it. I going one glider at a time all day. no issues and I only got the 2 left Marshmellow and Momo. I thinking if no issues with marshmellow then I may just put mom in a cage alone for a night or 2 and let the rest and freya re bond . then see if Momo will be more willing to share since she be the one on the outside.

Then I might even see if i can work the trio into the group and get down to 3 cages and keep the 4th cage for rescues, or intake for any I am called about in a pinch.

:yes: glad to hear so far working well!

I suppose manipulating the colony hierarchy a bit might help with acceptance. (Did I say that right?)

Well What a crazy week it been. Freya with colony but i had to remove Momo She decides to attack everyone in the colony now that freya is back. so she been in time out alone this week to adjust and hopefully realize she got to play nice to stay with her colony. I had several truck issues. ( window control fried ) this in turned (spent 2 days stuck down ) replace the controller and find out the motor is shot. ( window control was 200+ bucks the entire lift for window will be another 100 bucks. ( right now I just have it locked in the up and still need to put the panels back on. .,

Now I managed to blow both low beam lights on the truck ( of course this happens at night after the store is closed to get them) that another 50 bucks I betting. But I am going tomorrow for a drug test cause i did get offered a job at best buy outlet store that like 10 minutes from home. it weekend style work but I can live with that( just to get out the house and money I be happy) So now it time ot play caught up on bills then go from there.

So been crazy this pass as well lol. We went to NYC to visit a glider friend and ( my first glider rescue that I wished I had kept lol) Leonard is a daddy and has more kids on the way ) WE attended a reptile show..
Spent Valentine day driving all day. ( picked up 2 different iPhone 6 (and a 6+) for my wife and I, We picked up and delivered 2 gliders for a friend (and to her) There was some miss communication and spent some time sitting in a parking lot getting everything squared away before I delivered them. I really not gotten to play wit the kids much so I making a point between tonight and my day off (whenever that is) to spend an entire day with them all. I want to work on getting Momo back in the colony and I love to get the 3 other females into the colony as well. but I not sure on a way to do so successfully ( they dont seem to like each other much (I am not sure if due to the different ages or the pecking order.
I wish I could just bath soak them all with some vanilla drops and let them groom each other dry and clean then I think they all smell enough alike to settle down. ( only if it worked that easy right)
