Hello all,

I became a new Sugar Momma this past December. I adopted Joey from a nearby resident who didn't want him anymore. I've always wanted a Sugar Glider but I could never afford the price. This lady sold me Joey (and all this supplies) for $75. So heck yeah I paid and ran! She had him for only a few months. I got him from her at 4 months old. She raised him to be a bra baby so I've continued this for him. He's happy to stay nestled in my bra while I clean and do whatever. I changed his diet when I got him from Hedgehog food to Vitasmart kibble and fresh fruit and veggies. His treats were dried mango so I use those, yogies, and now mealworms. I'm going to change his diet again to the BML diet at the suggestion of his vet. His first vet visit was the other day and he was given a clean bill of health. My next step for him is a larger cage. He's such a sweet boy and I am very happy to have him. My youngest son enjoys helping me with Joey. It's nice to have a backup caregiver. Playtime with Joey is inside a 2-man tent. We let him jump between us and crawl along the tent walls. I have a plate of treats out for him but he hasn't nibbled on them yet. I think he's too busy jumping around. I don't know that we are 100% bonded yet but if he gets scared he runs straight to my bra. He's also kneeded my back when he's inside my shirt and he's barked at me and won't be quiet until I take him out. I think we are on the right track.

Thank you for having me.

:welcome2: to GC!

Wow! You are doing great!

I think it's sweet that he is already bra trained!

It is normal for them not to want treats when they are in "explore mode".

BML is a good diet too! Some people pour ir over their veggies like a gravy, others serve on the side (mine prefer it that way, plus the paws stay a bit cleaner too).

Please keep us posted and we do love pics!
