Looks good!

I would take out the wood perches that came with the cage. The urine of the gliders will soak into it and you will not be able to get rid of the smell.

Other than that it looks great.

It looks great! I like to hide my money's around the cage but that's up to you. smile

If the bowls have clips, you might want to clip them high up in the cage. They like to eat up high and this keeps them from defecating in the food as really.

I can't tell from the picture but if you only have one sleeping spot you might want to add another; they like to change nest sometimes.

Since the gliders are new to you making sure your smell is inside of their cage will help bonding a lot. I rub the pouches on my arms and body. Also it will help tremendously if you take a dirty shirt you've slept in, tie a hole in the bottom so it's a huge pouch, and hang it in their cage as a sleeping place. When I did this I made it the only sleeping place so that way I knew they were getting used to my scent while they slept.

Nice! You went with the Congo, great choice!

I like your Pom Pom pit! Did you make it?

Did you get a fleece cage set? I recommend using the corner hammocks over the feeding bowls to help shield them from waste matter. I'll post a pic of this later if you like.

Make sure the wheel has decent clearance all around, if it does, then you are golden!

Yes We got a Fleece cage set but unfortunatley it does not ship till tomorrow So It will not be here for the Gliders homecoming. Yes I did make the Pom Pom pit. I could of done it better but it was my first try next one will be better. The wheel should have plenty of clearance

That's great! I think your pom pom pit looks great.

Here is the example I was talking about. When offering food dishes low, and not in a glider diner, you can use corner hammocks or even the bridges to provide a canopy.


Another way to help protect feeding dishes is attach them higher up, like suggested, if you have the dish-holding clamps like below photo. I like to use a shelf near the top to use for serving food. I line it so I can just brush off the food left around in the morning when removing the dishes.

Please do not do this, take a piece of fleece and wear it in your clothes for a couple days and put that in their sleeping pouch.
