<img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crying.gif" alt="" /> I just don't know what to say. My roomie (who is very glider knowledgable because of me) decided to let Lilo and Stitch out to play in the bathroom. We do this all the time. This time...I wasn't home.

The phone rang. He went to answer it. Lilo and Stitch drowned in the toilet. It took no more than a few minutes. I can't bear to think about it! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crying.gif" alt="" />

I still can't believe it. I even have signs posted on the toilet! Keep the lid down! Drowning hazard! This just isn't happening...

This is my first glider loss. Stitchie was my first glider. Losing two at one time is just making it harder.

I am so crushed. I screamed and cried and he was crying the whole time. I didn't mean to lose it, I just couldn't believe what he was telling me. Not my babies. Not my precious fur-butts. He is so upset he will barely even speak to me. Those gliders were part of the family here and now they're gone. I just can't believe it.

I am going to miss them soooo much. I can't believe that they are really gone. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/needhug.gif" alt="" />

Thank you all for your kind words. I've been so numb all day. I NEVER expected anything like this to happen in MY home. Isn't that how it always is? I really thought I had taken every single precaution. I really thought my gliders were perfectly safe.

I drove home in awful weather (Illinois weather...ick) and got pulled over for not having current stickers on my plates. I walk in the front door to my roomie wiping tears from his cheeks and cradling a pouch. I knew before he said a word. I already knew. My heart just sank to my stomach. It was just heart breaking...

My boyfriend is beside himself. He hated to admit it, but Stich was his boy. He is trying to act all tough like it doesn't bother him, but I caught him staring blankly at their pouch a minute ago. He looked up and said, "It's so empty." I just burst into tears...again.

I've buried 4 of my beloved gliders, and know the pain. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crying.gif" alt="" /> There's nothing like it. Think of them happy and playing at the Rainbow Bridge-tree climbing, running through the dew covered grass, flying. Always warm and plenty to eat-no fear, pain, sickness. Then one day, they'll stop and look into the distance....and next thing you know you'll be covered with face hugs and those precious little noses in your face, deep black eyes looking into yours...and you cross the Rainbow Bridge together...

OMG...I am so very sorry this horrible thing happened to you and your babies...I cannot imagine what you are going through...And your poor room mate...I hope you have found it in your heart to forgive him...My heart goes out to all of you...Your room mate, your boyfriend and you...

I wish I knew how to link past posts...this would be the perfect place to link the post with the "Toilet Ladder" someone here invented...I can't even remember who the wonderful person was right now...I had them in both toilets in my old house but I forgot about them when we moved here...But I am going to the hardware store right now and getting the stuff to make some for this house...If anyone reads this post that knows how to link posts can you PLEASE link that one here so everyone...old and new alike can see it and maybe save more lives....Thanks

Thanks again. I, of course, forgave my roomie. He didn't intend to cause harm. We are all adjusting to this in our own way.

I remember that post about the toilet ladders. I'm going to be looking into it. Something tells me that the lid will always be down now.

I'm so so sorry for your losses. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" /> I can't even imagine how hard the pain of losing one is. Losing 2 at once must be unbearable. Try to remember the good times you had with them and imagine them arriving at the Rainbow Bridge together. They'll have each other to glide with as they wait on you there. (((Hugs))) to you and your roomie. I know he must feel just awful about this. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/upset.gif" alt="" />

This is so terrible it makes me want to cry. I lost my baby Mo on New Year's Eve and I will tell you, the grief was worse than when some of my own human family members died. I am so, so sorry that you just experienced the same thing.

Sometimes it makes me afraid that no matter how careful we are, our babies are just too vulnerable. Since Mo passed and I've read other stories, it has turned me into a totally worried, overprotective mother. I know how you feel when you wonder how it could have happened in your house, after being so careful. What a helpless feeling.

All my sympathy is with you.

Thank you for posting that link...I pray none of us ever has to say our little ones used the ladders but I'd rather hear of it's success than hear more sad stories...

Gizmo and Sprocket have hardly left me unless I personally put them in their cage. I have asked everyone who lives here to avoid handling any of my caged pets without my explicit permission/supervision. I've gone nuts, I swear it!

I actually crawled through my room (glider proof) trying to find any tiny thing I may have missed that could harm my two babies. I capped off every electrical outlet, I used baby clamps on all cabinet doors, and I even put fresh Glider Drowing Hazard signs on the toilet. Thanks for the link to the ladder. To think, it could have saved them both...

I cannot stop crying. I've lost pets before, but this is unreal. Ask anyone. I'm a psycho about my gliders. They get top notch care, housing, food, etc. They are treated like royalty here! I can't even walk into that bathroom without thinking of them. I think my other two know that something is wrong. They chittered and chattered all night long to each other. I wonder if they know?

Anyway, thanks yet again. I will eventually come to terms with this.

I'm so sorry for your loss, and your pain. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" />
Rainbow Bridge is a grand place! I know you know that and I know it doesn't erase the pain. BUT, if you try really hard to see them there, try really hard to see them together and not suffering <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/gliderangel.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/gliderangel.gif" alt="" />, try really hard to realize that they are watching over you, Gizmo and Sprocket with love, maybe, just maybe, it will be bearable until the pain diminishes and memories of happier times with them fills the void where the pain once was. That is my hope for you and your roomie. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" />

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts and prayers go out to you, your bf, and your roomate as I know how precious each of my fur babies are to me, my gliders even more so. The bond tends to work both ways. I pray that in time your pain is eased and that you take comfort in the ones that remain. Just keep remembering that they are together now in a better place, and one day you will see them again.

Jenny, I wanted to let you know how sorry I am. I had the same experience with my flying squirrel a couple of years ago. It was awful. I hope you can get through this and find peace again. You are a great glider mom. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" />

I totally understand your hurt... Easter Sunday, 2004 (I know bad but we let our gliders out at night in our master bedroom) my husband didn't drain bathwater. I knew it was odd when I got up and Mookie and Teekie weren't eating.. waited a an hour and started looking ... the water was murky.. it still hurts.. they were both in there.. they loved each other sooo much.. (crying .. sorry) Hugs for you.

I am crying for you. I know exactly how it feels. I wanted a suggie for 8 years and finally got my precious Loki... not more than two months after I got him, my roomies didn't close his cage properly and he too drowned in the toilet. I found him the next morning... All of my heart goes out to you. I also send every tear I cried in hopes that maybe you can shed less of them. Your babies are together still... and they love you. Take care sweetie. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" />

PS- I actually have a glider ladder installed in my toilet now... and it helps me sleep at night. Fantastic invention... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
