#57452 - 09/09/05 03:17 AM Tragedy and Warning for others...
Anonymous
Unregistered


Fozzy and his friend Gizmo were not wanted in their former home, so we took them in. They were fed a good diet and seemed healthy, although had emotional problems probably due to their strange pasts. Fozzy crabbed every time we walked in the room, while Gizmo is very clingy. Fozzy slowly grew accepting of us and allowed us to hold him. We were at least the third family to own them. We do know that their first owners kept them in a glass aquarium next to a pet python. This may have led to Gizmo's self mutilation which was done at some time in his past. He has chewed off about three inches of tail as well as an entire hand. He is mourning Fozzy's death. While Fozzy was out of his cage, he somehow managed to crawl into the workings of our oven and was electecuted. This is such an untimely death for this poor little creature who finally found a loving home. We feel very sad and wish we would have thought of this as a potential danger. I wanted to share this story with you all so that you can be warned of this danger which we completely overlooked.

I am so sorry you lost your friend. Thank you for sharing. It confirms that I am not being over protective, the gliders do not get to be out and about anywhere but their room. When I look around our home, I can see so many potential danger areas, and our glider friends are so curious, they would definately find them. Bless you for the love you give to these wonderful lil friends.

I am so sorry for your loss. At least he did get an opportunity to be treated well and loved a lot, as he should have been from the start of his life, by you. Thank you for bringing this potential danger to our attention.

[:"green"]I am so sorry for your loss of Gizmo. Give little Fozzy some snuggles from me & all 10 of my gliders. Thanks for sharing about the hazard of electric ovens, I never would have thought of it...
You may want to make an e-collar for Fozzy (if you haven't already) to prevent any more self-mutilation during this time of grief.
Please keep us posted as to his progress.
God bless you for your loving heart! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" />:
