Wow... I haven't written about my gliders since September? I guess we've been a little busy!

Yoda, Winky and I have been together for about 15 months now. We've definitely had our ups and downs of bonding along the way, but seem to have entered a lovely plateau of general contentedness with each other. We still enjoy out of cage play time every morning, and in the last few weeks, play time always ends with one or both of them curled up somewhere on my body.

My standard uniform for play time is layers under my big terry cloth robe. (I like to think of it as my amazing technicolor housecoat.) Both gliders love running through the sleeves of the robe like tunnels, and find it extra special cuddly to snuggle up in the crossed section of the front lapels. This morning they each took up residence in an armpit (Yoda on the right, Winky on the left).

Since I can't carry them with me all day, eventually I do have to scoop them up and deposit them in a pouch. Winky usually goes willingly enough, but Yoda doesn't want to let go. He clings to my hand, tries to run back up my arm, and generally refuses to be detached until I can distract him. (I think he loves me!)

I'm sure these morning snuggles are just another passing phase, but it's so incredibly sweet to have them so attached to me. smile

You are so lucky!!!

I miss morning play, I haven't been able to fit a routine into my schedule for morning time. I've been trying to get a few evenings a week of out of cage play, but it doesn't always work out. We did just have a wonderful play session, sometimes they really seem to enjoy being out, and other times they seem rather to stay in their cage. Either way, they cut it fairly short, if I'm lucky they'll want to stay our for a whole 20 minutes or so, lol.

Mine were never coddlers, but they weren't babies when I homed them. Anyway, my Lulu loved crawling up my sleeves, and always had an attachment to my bathrobes, lol. She would always jump to it if it was hung near by. Now sometimes Skadoosh will, but not like my Lulu did. However both Ollie and Skadoosh seem to enjoy the uptop playground and even extend their explorations to the two canvas bins full of suggie stuff that is stored on the top shelf of my desk. Tonight, and a rare few other times, one or the other will climb on or into the tunnel that hangs on the side of their cage.

Well, sorry for going on and on in your thread, just saying how lucky you get that cuddle in from your babies. Thanks for sharing the update, you've both been missed.

You never know. Mine have a favorite hoodie. Almost two years ago, I had to sacrifice the sleeves so I could wear it in the summer. They still love it. The stinkier the better. When I wash it, they mark it more than anything else. They hang out in the hood on my back. I only wear it inside. I do have a winter hoodie, I'll be putting a zippered pouch in the front soon. We will see how that goes...
