We got our new girl on Wednesday, so today (Saturday) is the first day we are home during the day to know her schedule. She's been up a lot. She was in bed when we got up at 9:30am. Up at 10:30am running around and playing on her wheel. She took a catnap, got back up. Another catnap and is back up again.

This seems really weird to me. Houdi goes to bed around 8:45am and he stays in bed all day long. Do some gliders get up a lot during the day?

I'm wondering if the people who had her before me had her up a lot during the day. ???

She also seems to be a light sleeper. If I'm near her cage and talk to someone, she will start crabbing.

She is in a new home with new smells. Give her a couple days and she should start getting back on schedule.

We are on Day 5 now and she is still awake during the day. Also, she isn't good at eating her staple. The first couple nights she nibbled at it. But she prefers her TPG cereal and monkey biscuits. So, the last couple nights I have only given her the staple so that she hopefully eats the vitamins. She didn't touch it last night. I didn't want her to go hungry, so this morning I gave her some cereal and biscuits which she ate all of. I also have given her a couple meal worms, which she wants to eat too.

Yesterday, when it was looking like she might go to sleep, she was in her pouch, but at the top peeking out for quite awhile. I started wondering if maybe she peed in there and couldn't be comfortable. I decided to put a second pouch in there, just in case. The only pouch I had available was one I had recently taken out of Houdi's cage that needed to be laundered. She is favoring that pouch! I checked out her other pouch and she did not pee or poop in it. So, I like that she is preferring the one that smells like Houdi. smile

Still, I wish she would sleep during the day and eat her staple! How is she going to get adequate calcium?

sounds like she may be lonely and a bit stressed. My second one did this during quarantine.

Have you given her blankies with your scent on them?

Our second glider went 3 weeks without good sleep. She was crabby and aggressive. She didn't eat her food I gave her. She wanted cheerios ( That's what the prior owner fed her.) I slowly took them away, and and never caved. She lost a bit of weight but finally came round. It wasn't easy. But they will come around.

So when I visited Stitch the first time I exchanged fleece blankies with the breeder!

Now Ellie stopped eatting well which worried me a lot, She started showing signs of depression which prompted the friend! It hada ben months since she ate ALL her food!

Once Stitch's blanket was in there her mood perked up! Was very active and all the food was gone in the morning!

So it sounds like your baby is just lonely and found comfort in Houdis scent!

That is one of the draw backs of the TPG diet, not all gliders will eat the diet once you sprinkle on the vitamins. You may want to consider another diet.
