The little ladies, Tika & Astrid are home! It was a long day but of the 5 1/2 hours it took to get home they only crabbed about a total of 30 minutes (over different times). cool

Once home we put the bonding pouch (which Paul held the whole time in the car) inside the cage and let them come out on their own. It took Tika (I'm guessing - still trying to figure out who is who - haha) less than five minutes to come out of the pouch to explore (and I think look for cage escape vulnerabilities - heehee). Astrid took a bit longer but did eventually come out and explore with her sister. They have been out exploring, eating and drinking ever since. Tika (I think) has been doing pretty good at learning how to run on the wheel. She is definitely getting the hang of it. ;-)

Here are a couple of pictures of shortly after they started both exploring. . . enjoy! jump jump

Thank you! wave

(Karen, I said "Hi" for you.) :D

So last night Tika got the hang of the wheel, she was in there most of her playtime. I think we saw a little food aggression, Astrid was eating a square pc of sweet potato from the Harvest Salad and Tika came over and tried to take it right out of her hands. Astrid wasn't having any of that - haha. In the end, I think Tika only managed to secure about 1/3 of the pc. (Even though there was plenty of food - including another pc of sweet potato - just steps away.)

Later we watched them wrestle/roll together. Actually, Tika was trying to get back into the wheel and Astrid kept jumping on her when she did. It was like, Try - Jump on - Roll around ("TSK! TSK!") - Try - Jump on - Roll around ("TSK! TSK!") - repeat about 5 times. Then Tika was finally like, "Awe forget it." She stopped trying to get in the wheel for a while - haha.

When I came into the room this morning, Astrid was in the sleeping pouch and Tika was in the pile of two clothing items that we have on the floor (I got that idea from this awesome forum). She is not directly on the grate, she is in between the two clothes. Haha. I'm hoping that's ok after 10 months of sleeping in the same pouch.

Overall, we are blessed and surprised that they SEEM to take to their new home so well. I do have A LOT of stuff in there for them to play on and with. And a LOT more underneath for toy swapping later.
I'm thinking that "dainty" is not used often in the Glider world, but they kept the place pretty clean . . . so far. Haha! No noise at all last night, except when they were "TSK"-ing to each other. Oh and this morning I was wiping out the poop tray and since Tika is so close to the grate she crabbed - thinking I was making too much noise before she was fully asleep. Oops!

Going to start the "Glider Diary" now to keep track of their "going ons" - :lshower: :lshower:
