God, I hate having to come to this forum!

Abby has been my bra baby for over 4 years and has gone everywhere with me. NEVER in all that time has she left my person when outside. Wednesday evening (after dark), as we where getting out of the car at home after work, she did. Normally, I would just stand still, and she'd be right back on my leg and going up my body. BUT the dog comes running up to us, thru all those nice crackly leaves, and Abby is gone like a streak of lightning. I haven't seen her since. The temp got low enough that there was a frost that night. Altho my husband and I both went out and called, she didn't come and didn't make any noise we could hear. As if the dog wasn't bad enough, I heard an owl very close at the same time. We left the bedroom window open, hoping that Buddy would bark and call her back in, but no sign of her.

Oh Lord!! I am SO SORRY TO HEAR THIS! *TEARS*
Try hanging her pouch with blankies on the window. Make a recording of glider sounds...keep playing it? Hang an owl wind sock in any trees or pie pans to scare off owls. God, I just don't know what to say! I'm praying your baby comes home safe! (((HUGS)))

OH! Check any holes in the trees you can find..that's natural for them to go to in the wild, maybe instinct kicked in!

Okay, maybe this is a silly idea..I would try this ...get a bunch of HUGE mealies and string them up in places YOU can reach. I lose it if one even touches me...but this is an emergency! Thread a needle and string em up!! They LOVE mealies...still thinking...

Might want to check into any nests in your trees too...might have snuggled up in one! Look under anything "warm"...and re-check the house..someone on here lost there glider and it came home a few days later and was in the house <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Ditto - don't give up hope yet. You know what to do -- leave scented pouches and goodies out, take Buddy out and let him click for her, play the recordings of glider noises, etc. You'll have some sleepless nights, but a day and a half just seems WAY too soon to give up hope. My guess is that she's found a warm tree to curl up in at night, and may just go into torpor when it gets really cold.

My prayers and hopes are added to the others, Kathy -- know we love you!

After 2 nights of freezing temps, no food/water, she couldn't get back, would be too weak. If we had heard anything at all the first night, I would have hope, but not now. As for checking nests, I can't climb 50ft trees to check anything like that. Hubby and I both at different times went out to talk to her for hours the first night and several times last night. I really don't think it would be realistic to hope she survived this long.

What's torpor? Like a hibernation temp thing? ...

That's so very sad! (tears) maybe she's still alive, as far as 50ft trees if ya try some of the above advised it's worth a try, i guess whenever i took mine with me,anywhere i would put him in his pouch and know i can keep him from getting loose. But i'm wishing you the best of luck!

Oh, I am so very sorry to read this post, and I'd be just beside myself. I have lots of trees around my house, and I can only imagine how I would feel - lost. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" /> I think the advice you have above is good... place the pouches... maybe an extra cage full of her goodies... and like Lucy said, if you can get a recording of her pal's calls, that might draw her in. You just never know. She could have made a nice nest in the opening of a tree and hidden herself away. I hope and I pray that she comes home to you! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" />

It's been 4 nights now, and not a single sign of her. Food not touched, and no sounds. I went out last night again, to the sheds and all around the yard with no luck. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/upset.gif" alt="" />

Mods: I think this needs to go to the Real Stories forum

[:"blue"] Oh, Kathy, I just don't want to do this, but with a sad heart for both you and Abby I will honor your wishes.

Nothing would give me more pleasure than to move it back.

Sweet sweet Abby. Wherever you are, you are surrounded by not only Kathy's love but the love of all her friends. [/]

<img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" /> I can't help think about our dog that got away...he came home ..after a neighboring farmer spotted him..at someone elses house. We didn't know the man, but had gone door to door with pictures ...2 mos. later, we got our dog back. He had been dognapped. I pray someone found her and is enthralled with her and loves her too. ..maybe they will look for the owner. Children sometimes find little animals and take them home. I did that when I was little. My parents were older and certainly would have thought it was a little wild animal, taken it to the vet to see what to feed it and all and let me keep it, never thinking it was a pet. Honestly, until I heard of gliders..I never would have thought about them being a pet if I'd found one even a year ago. ...Praying for you and Buddy and still that she comes home someday.

I have given up any hope of finding her. With the cold and the owl in the yard at the time she took off, I don't think she made it thru the first night. With us out there calling her for hours, if she were close, she would have come to us.
