Ok so I am not sure if this is where I should be putting this so mods please move if needed.

Ok so Hope is getting big enough to be put into a cage and I am planning on having her brother chow chow be with her. So I am in need of help with what to do. Here is a list of what I am hoping to get help with.

Size of cage: I know that she will need a not so high cage so I am wondering what size is best for her since she just has her 1 eye.

Accessories: What are some fun, safe ones for her? Also I read to do a bunch of shelves.

I really want to make her life as comfy, fun, safe and loving as possible since she has had such a hard start.

Any help would be awesome. Thanks

I could be totally off on this one, but I would imagine she would still get around fine with 1 eye and wouldn't need too many modifications as long as the other eye wasn't affected...

...I say this because we have a glider who is quite blind due to bad cataracts (caused by improper diet before we adopted him)...he is in a normal cage with another normal glider, and he gets around just fine, albeit a bit more cautiously.

Best of luck to you and your gliders!

I have one with only one eye and she functions like any of my others and shes as active and playful as all of my gliders.And shes in a normal cage with no modifications.

I have a one eyed glider and she gets along fine in a large cage (30" x 55" x 18") with her cagemate. I don't change the cage accessory setup too much because her depth perception is lacking.

it seems to me that any animal, just like people, can learn to compensate for an extremety they don't have. best of luck to you and to your special little Hope thumb
