Wow what a great subject for debate this one is
I will talk about my duck for a minute...
We had 2 ducks. While they both bonded
to us, they certainly were each other's first choice for companionship. When we began to get complaints about the female (wouldnt shut up..go figure)we knew we had to get rid of her. The relationship with the other duck and us blossomed like crazy!
I have always told my husband that one is better as they will get attached to you as opposed to each other.HOWEVER!
And that is a big however....From the experience of the hundreds of people I have met on this forum, it seems as though gliders have such deep personalities that you can indeed bond
with 2 at the same time. If you plan on carrying 2 together what is the difference anyway? If you PLAN on carrying only one at a time then I would say to do that so they get used to being separated, but its not necessarily a bond
to you type thing.
I experienced this with my ferret, Baby. We had 2 ferrets and they were always together, but when given a choice of staying with his ferret companion or me, he would choose me (he adored me).
My gliders, Arwen and Gizmo I sometimes carry together, sometimes separate. Gizmo doesnt like to travel with me, Arwen does. I dont think in their case it has anything to do with being carried together or not. Even when I bring them out together, Gizmo lets me know she isnt real happy.
I think it is up to the individual glider how well they bond
to you. My girls like the alone time, my hubby's gliders like to go together.
So to sum it up. I think Lisa at Suncoast may be right but IN PART. I also believe all the other glider owners that you can still successfully bond
with 2. Look at it this way, 2 together feel safe, and they make you a part of that, so THEY feel safe together and with you!
