I've already gone through the proper protocol. I have pouches and food out. All other critters are in crates or locked up in rooms that I don't think they could get to. I just need some moral support!!! I'm at work right now, but boss already told me to call it early. I'll be heading home very soon.

We just finished putting the new floors in the glider room yesterday. During the remodel, all the sugs were moved into my dining room. Somehow, during the hustle and bustle, one cage somehow got bumped?? open or something. I'm honestly not sure how it happened. All I know is that I noticed the open cage door last night when we went to put the cages back in the room. Leonidas was sitting quietly in his pouch, but Dot and Dilios are nowhere to be found! I sat up all night listening for suggie movement and was very disheartened when I heard NOTHING. Ugh...

Please send good thoughts to little 'D' and Dot. cry cry Tell them to come home to mommy this very instant! Leo is going nuts without them!

Start going over the house inch by inch. I just lost brand new baby recently so I know what you are gong through. I never found my Soda frown

I have found gliders in closets, in boots/shoes, in blankets. Check in the couches. I always run around frantically shaking everything as soon as they go missing and I usually find them pretty quickly. They get crabby from being jostled so rudely. Good luck, I hope you find your babies!

They've got to be curled up asleep somewhere, probably together - is there any noise that "always" bugs them? Do you have a dog by any chance that could sniff them out?

Good luck, I'm so sorry - I know you are worried sick...

You two brats get home to Mommy right away! She is scared to death! When you didn't come home last night, she didn't know if you'd been in a car accident and were laying in a ditch somewhere or just where you were!! Or if you'd even been drinking! That would give your Mom a heart attack! You get your butts home!

Thanks so much for the support. I'm so upset. My engine started knocking on the way home, so it looks like my car shot craps too.

This whole mess is harder because of all the stuff stacked up in the dining room. It's hard to move stuff because I'm afraid something else will fall and that could crush a napping glider. So, my fiance is on his way to the rescue...bless his heart. He's leaving work to come home and start moving stuff for me, one item at a time, into the glider room so I can start searching through every box and tub of pouches, blankets, and toys.

Does it make me a bad mom if I want to gently kick the boxes to see if a crab comes out? I could just sort of knock on them with my knuckles to see if one or both is happily tucked away in one of those boxes or tubs. Bad idea? Should I wait?

Should I leave Leo in the cage or move him to a temporary cage and open their cage back up? They haven't touched the food I left out, but that doesn't worry me. Someone was nibbling on the apples on the counter at some point. So, at least one suggie is still in the house and is probably downstairs.

I taped my toilet shut. I had a drowning accident years ago and refuse to have a repeat experience. My roommates aren't exactly excited about having no toilet, but I don't care. I need to go double check and make sure my roomies shut their windows too. Anything else I need to check? worried

Check rooms thoroughly then close the door behind you and seal up any under-door cracks they could sneak through. CHECK ALL LAUNDRY THOROUGHLY AS YOU PUT IN WASHER. Careful sitting on couches/chairs. Don't forget to look high - the first place my girls go when they want to explore is UP! Do you have access to any safe one way animal traps? Perhaps something like that could work. Also, you could perhaps try playing glider noises loudly in the evening in hopes of getting a response. I would even put bells or something around so if they go to eat or go near their cage they will make noise. Also, at night, could you put something stinky and appetizing near a fan to blow the smell around? Make sure to check under cabinets for that gab between cupboards and the floor - if nothing's in there plug those holes up fast. Don't neglect looking in food cupboards and the boxes therein. Remember the gliders that were found in the cracker box? (Plus, IDK about your "kids" but mine LOVE boxes...speaking of which, maybe in addition to pouches you can put boxes out to give even more places to go to/sleep/play in). HTH good luck :hugs:

I rapped on every single box in there. cry Nothing. I'm starting to get really worried. My roommate left his attic access space door open. It's way upstairs in the rear of a closet, but that has me totally shaken. I keep thinking I hear them only to discover it's an upset cat scratching to get out of a kennel. worried

Oh, geez...the cabinets! *runs off*

Don't forget to check plants too!


Speaking of which - you might want to move any plants into a room you've checked and locked off so they don't eat anything! When my girl got out once she had nibbled on about all my house plants. Thankfully none were toxic!

Don't take garbage out until you have gone through the garbage! I have read stories of a glider or two found in a garbage bag.

You might want to look under the cupboards in the kitchen, next to the floor, and see if the gaps are left open. If sealed, then we can breathe easier.

Hope you find your gliders safe and sound SOON!

I don't know how close your dining room is to your kitchen, but check under the cabinetry for spaces.
I hope you can find them soon! hug2

I thoroughly searched and then blocked off the cabinets. No sugs. I also taped the washer and dryer shut. I swear, it looks post-apocalyptic at my house right now. I'm putting furniture in front of doors after I clear a room so nobody opens it. I look like I'm locking myself into my house.

Ditto what Jen said!

The biggest concern I would have is your roomies messing up your strategy. Hopefully they will work with you to keep the house baracaded up. Now just take a nap so you can be up all night listening!

Thought: do your gliders have anything they LOVE? A particular food or toy they won't resist if they come across it? For example my Carmella loves all boxes and her stealth wheel. If she were lost I'd put boxes all over with bells in them as well as her wheel out with a bell or two in it so that way if she goes in any of the above I would hear it. :shrug:
