Hi, I'm relatively new here, and could really use some advice. I have had my gliders for about 3 months now. I get them out everyday of the week, but generally not the weekends they no longer crab at me, and seem to have no problem with the schedule, and go into the carrying pouch willingly. I have had them out in the bathroom 3 times now, including today. They stay close to me for the most part, they jump on and off me, chase each other around on me etc. today I experimented with putting a tiny piece of treat in each pocket of my shirt. The problem is that they get behind my neck, and they get around my shoulder blade and bite me. Not hard enough to draw blood.. I don't think.. but I can feel teeth. I can't reach around to move it away. Any advice would help! Thank you, sorry this is so long.

April

Try sitting with your back against the wall. Keeping them from getting back there and distraction is your friend.

Feather toys for cats, as long as they don't have catnip are great.
