Hello everyone. I have been reading posts on this site for 5 years, and finally thought I'd join. I am hoping to be able to get a sugar glider pair, but I have had many problems so far. I have been researching sugar gliders diligently since I was 9 and saw one at a fair, but my mom being a responsible person required me to do some research. I am so glad she did because if she hadn't I would have become one of those people with pushover parents who got me a pet that soon died or had to be given away. About a year ago I had an opportunity to get a sugar glider. Her previous owners had obviously bought her on an impulse and were now getting rid of her. As soon as I saw her I knew I needed to get her away from these people who had killed her 3 companions out of neglect. They obviously had done no research and tried to convince me that gliders were special because they never got sick and didn't need to visit the vet. I bought her immediately since I had been doing research for a very long time. I took her to the vet as soon as possible and got some medicine and care, but the stress of moving and taking medicine combined with her already fragile condition caused her to become very sick. We had to put her down after only two weeks with her, but I am still glad I was able to have her for a any time at all. We bonded very quickly and after about a week she was comfortable sitting in my hand for a short while and taking treats from my hand. It has been a year since I lost her and I would still like to get a pair of sugar gliders, but I am not sure I want to rescue as I was originally intending since I am not sure if I could take losing another animal any sooner. I just wanted to share my story and maybe get some advice on how to move on and be able to get some sugar gliders. Thank you.
