That's right folks! I want to hear stories about your glider's pet peeves. It's so odd to realize that like us, they have certain things that they don't like or certain things that bug them until they do it. So, anyone have any good stories? ^-^

I'll start off. (bwahaha) Yang's pet peeve is actually entertaining. I have a toy by XGlider that has this stretchy spikey piece attached around a wiffle ball and Yang absolutely hates when I hang plastic heart bracelets on it. He's to the point where if he sees one hanging on it, he'll knock it down right away just to get it off of there. I still hang the bracelets on it just to annoy him and it's weird because he doesn't grab it to play with it, just to get it off. Our nights are entertaining here because once in a while, I'll keep rehanging it on the toy just to give him something to do. crazy

My glider Lilly likes to take her mealies from me and run away as fast as she can to corner to eat them...Like I might want a bite!

My new little guy Duke (I am calling him dookey right now- almost always poops when I put him in a bonding pouch!) likes to knock over a little tub I put in his cage and knock all of the balls out! I think he doesn't like the balls in the container but all over the floor!

roflmao I don't even try to touch mine while they eat. I'm afraid they'll think I'm after their food. 0.o

Aww. None for you, SL! That's so cute about Duke. ^^

Misu despises the color red. If it's red...he picks and bites and does whatever to make it GO AWAY! Tira used to hate those little plastic jacks in her swinging hammock roflmao . All I would see is her little hand throwing them out.

That's so cute, Suggie. laugh I bet it gets annoying if you're in a hurry though...

roflmao Karin, that's great. If you are wearing red, does Misu bite it too? 0.o I like Tira's pet peeve...she sounded like Yang...

Elijah gets so excited about mealie time that he holds on to the cage with has back feet and stretches out as far as he can reaching for me with his front feet...then he grabs my hand as hard as he can to get the mealie and holds my hand there while eating his mealie...as if to say..."don't go anywhere, I want another one when your done"

that part it cute. but is what annoys me is he's so frantic about getting the mealie he often misses the worm and takes a nice bite on my finger instead.

My guys dont realy have any peeves that I have noticed... EXCEPT that when they bark for me - I BETTER get there ASAP, or when I DO get there, they will ignore me, and give me the evil eye.... lol The other day we were eating diner, around 5:00, and I heard Bebe start barking, and would NOT stop... So I went over, and took them out, and put them down my shirt, and she just KEPT barking, like she was telling me off or something for taking too long to get to her... So hubby started barking back at her.....

Oh yes, I better not wear red!!! He will bite at the shirt. Once, I had a pouch that had some red in the print and he would bite and pick at the fabric...even if he was out playing, he would bite it through the outside bars...goofball.

This isn't a pet peeve, but Lily has a trick! Well, sorta. First, she will ONLY eat a mealie if I hand it to her. I noticed a long time ago, when she would take it from my fingers, she wouldn't touch the finger. So one night, I sorta squished the mealie inbetween 2 fingers and I cannot believe it...she can get that mealie out of my fingers without hurting me...basically, barely touching my fingers. I can't wait to show Cyndie (Lily's grandma) this...it is so neat.

My little Boo hates it when I take him into the light. He comes out of his pouch at night no problem with the lights on. But when I take him and Peeka out to play and get their dinner ready, I better turn off the kitchen lights or he dives down my shirt and waits for me to do it. lol. I can travel from room to room and in any one that has a bright light on he will dive back down.

I have a male glider teku that has two pet peeves One he hates ribbons and bows. I made a bunch of pouches with ribbons and bows and them and he chewed at them until he got them all off. The other thing he doesn't seem to like is beads. If I put a toy with beads in their cage will will continually try and chew the beads off. I dont understand it but he doesn't like them.

Monster HATES HATES HATES applesauce - she doesn't even want it in her cage.

If I put a little bowl of it in there, she'll turn around and flip it over with her back feet like a little bull (and usually all over the wall, floor, etc...)

If it's on a plate next to all her other foods, she scoops it off with her wittle hand onto the cage floor - then she shakes her hands wildly to get the icky applesauce off!

I wish so badly that I had a video camera, because it would be the funniest thing to show at the SGGA! roflmao

Icarus has something about this hat that Dani has...if she comes over with it on or out anywhere near him he will bite and attack it like crazy. Even at that point if we take it away he is a bit scary and all riled up...then it is safest to put him back in the cage...he goes CRAZY!!!

roflmao I love the silly little buggers.

Ugh! I wish mine were nice about taking mealies. I always almost lose a finger so I've resorted to giving them their mealies in a half of a plastic easter egg. :S

Everyone's gliders are so silly. I think I'd go insane if mine hated red, duckies, apple sauce, or any of the other things listed though. 0.o

All 4 of the Moomins don't like it when I look at them. frown

Jack has a thing about Boogie being in HIS wheel. They only have one wheel in their cage - and they do NOT share wheel time. Jack wakes up first, and runs in the wheel, then it can be Boogie's turn. But Boogie is NOT ALLOWED to go in until Jack has had his run.
