My upstairs tenant is moving out and they have cats but they're leaving behind all these awesome tall cat play sculptures that are all covered in real soft material with ropes and you know all manner of things if I clean them really really well do you think Lucy and Wendy would be interested in them or could they possibly be harmed by cat dander or cat spit or whatever cat DNA might still be on there?






Also, at formal parties would my gliders be introduced as Ms Lucy glider or Ms Lucy sugar?? smile

Cat stuff you got some things to worry about. 1. Cat nip, it's toxic to glider as I have read. 2. String and fibers from carpets can cause issues that could become dangerous due to entanglement of their nails. So for the most part, risky. Maybe someone else may know about any other if your concerns.

I would go with just Ms Lucy, for formal occasions. If you feel you need to address her species, if it were me, I'd go with something like Ms Lucy the sugar glider.

If you really want to re-purpose them, I would take the carpet off and cover them in fleece.

I love Kim's idea!!!

You can cut strips of fleece to take the place of any hanging thing too make fleece pompoms, or natural feathers, plastic chain too!!!

Be sure to clean it really well too... If nothing else, would make great floor toys during tent time!

Oh wait. I reread it. Really tall??? Keep in mind they love to be really high, and sometimes don't like to come down, so make sure you can reach that high. Please take pics, we will see if we can help repurpose this thingy...

Replacing dangerous materials for them with fleece is a genius idea.

Now sad I hadn't thought of it, lol.

Yes to pics!!!!

I'd be worried about allowing them to use anything a cat played with due to things in cats saliva and poop that can be toxic to sugar gliders. frown

I think if I get b the chance I'll strip the cat climbing things down to the would wash them and then cover them in felt or not felt fleece and if that's too much then to the trash they go. No sense taking any chances.

you and your big fancy multi-syllable words. yeah maybe transcriber would of been better but by the time I lie down to type this i'm usually bushed. anyway i was always using my phone and i just ordered i a chrome book so now I can type and hopefully be a bit more coherent. typing on a phone was too slow and I would lose what little train of though I had and talking to google to transcribe was too fast because of too many pauses and uhs and ohs. so now I have this little machine...yay.
I cant wait to video chat with someone... this one website said that there were lots of single women within two miles of my location and judging by the pictures they must all be rich models or something...... hee hee
