Allright so heres another question, would it be a bad idea if me and my friend both had a glider and kept it in the same cage together, but every month we switched houses? like one month they would be at my house and then the next they would be at his...would that be too confusing for them? or result in some damage to them?

Sugar gliders tend to bond very stongly with their owners and be easily stressed. I think the bonding and seperating of a glider repeatedly could be very stressful for them, but I must admit that I have a similar arrangement, a pair of my gliders lives at my boyfriends house. I visit them daily and they are bonded to both me and my bf...

I think that it would be too stressful for them to haveto switch houses every month.

[:"blue"]I have to agree on the stress for the gliders being moved from place to place. It usually takes several days to several weeks for a glider to settle into a new environment.

I think it works for Leyna because she is not physically moving the gliders but rather going herself to visit them. [/]

Leyna: How does that work for you though going back and forth...don't you miss them?
