Can you bond to a 6yr old glider. I am his third home. I have had him 7wks now. I can never get him out of the cage unless I grab the box or pouch he is in.When he is out playing he never wants to come back to me to put him in the cage.I have been carry him around in a bonding pouch.Is there hope he will ever bond to me. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/nixweiss.gif" alt="" />

Yes, you can bond with a 6 year old glider. In fact, one of my more strongly bonded gliders is a 7 year old male that I got last year as a rescue. He wasn't very friendly at first, but after his mate passed away, he needed a buddy and now we are the best of friends...

Yes, you can bond but it might take a long time. Being his third home, he will have to learn that you are going to be there regardless. Some older gliders will bond with in a couple of weeks, some take months. Just don't give up and have patience. I have found what really helps is to work out a schedule for dinner time, play time and treat time and stay as close to the schedule as you can. Consistancy and patience works wonders.
