Hello everyone! I`m a long time lurker who finally made an account. Please call me Vitali!

I`ve loved animals my whole life, and have always had a soft spot for small exotics. I currently have a hedgehog named Heathcliff who is the light of my life! For a long time I`ve been interested in sugar gliders, and I think I`m finally ready to start getting serious.


I`ve done tons of research about the cage, food, care, and everything else I can read! I think they really are a good choice for me, and I am very excited to start my sugar glider journey soon (but not too soon, haha. You may see I`m currently in Japan, and I wouldn`t get them until I get back to America).

I`m a big fan of rescues. My two dogs are puppy mill rescues, and Heathcliff was a retired breeder (from a reputable hedgehog breeder). However, sugar gliders seem hard to rescue... The local small animal rescue never has them (which is good!) and CraigsList is always a little sketchy, since you never know if you`re supporting a mill breeder. So I think I`m going to meet half way in the middle, like with my hedgehog, and get an older pair, probably from The Pet Glider.

That might be the only question I still have that I can`t find info on right now... Between two, three, and four gliders, what do you all recommend to a first time owner? Two is nice since I have a lot of time with both, three is a more secure colony, and four is safe in case something happens (which, of course, I don`t expect! But if I get an older pair and a baby for example, I might want two babies so s/he wouldn`t be left all alone if the older pair passed away). Is four too many for a first time owner? Assuming I`d get a big cage and don`t mind the expense of extra food/vet bills/toys.

I`m so happy to learn with all of you and am excited to introduce my suggies when I can get them!
Thanks a bunch!

Hi and Welcome to GliderCENTRAL!

I run a small rescue and sanctuary in Wisconsin. There are other rescues around too, one in AZ, some out on the East coast.

My numbers fluctuate all the time.

For what it’s worth, I started with four & have no regrets... more than that, if I could go back & choose differently, I wouldn’t.

Thank you so much for the warm welcome! And that`s great to know, Feather! I`m actually a Midwesterner myself, so you`re not too far away.

And I`m starting to lean more heavily towards four... Hutch, thanks for the experience! That`s great to know! Your gliders have adorable names!

:welcomegc:

Hutch hasn't been Stateside all that long. You can read about his adventures with his Round Table Group in Glider Talk & Traveling. He had his four before coming Stateside.

We look forward to hearing about your travels both before and after you get your gliders agree

When I tell them that, it'll make my narcissistic fuzzbutts' night!

On second thought, I probably shouldn't tell them... they're already pretty full of themselves. The last thing I need is for any one (or more) of my squeaky turds to feel they're due any additional attention due to a celebrity status. wink
