#43574 - 04/19/05 05:15 AM Feel I am loosing the bond with them..What to do??

My gliders is now 6 monts and they got both neutered 1 month ago.
The last 2 months I have had little time for them, and feel that the bond is "weaker"!!
Before I used to have them in the pounch in my lap, and stroke them on the head/body while watching TV.
But now they just want to go out of the pounch.Seems like the stroking is not good enymore.
They pee a lot on me, but I dont feel is love <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
What can I do to get them to like me better besides treats?

Get yourself a tent and do some tent time with them. Even if you have a glider proof room the tent time just reinforces that bonding with them do to making them interact with you more.
Its a great thing to have <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumb.gif" alt="" />

If you want to know what a person is like, watch how he treats others.

You'll never know what the outcome is if you don't step up and try.

i feel that way too! i put my lil one in a new cage and in a new room and now he won't even come in the pouch for me anymore! so i am leaving him alone for a couple more days. and do some licky treats. the other night he took a treat from my hand and last night i tried some more treats and he acted like he was going to get it. i think is confidence is a little under water right now!

They are getting used to you too. They know you love them. Think of a teenager and the parent. They just want to hang out but have their space. They will come to you when they want to cuddle. I have had my gliders for over two years and tonight they decided to hang out and bond in my shirt. Usually they hop around my room and play. It jsut depends on their mood I think.
