PLEASE remember to always check to make sure every glider is accounted for when doing laundry!

I had quite the scare today when I took the toys and bedding out of the reptarium where the girls are kept. I checked the nest box that they sleep in and thought I saw 2 tails, so I took the laundry basket with their fleecey vine, one pouch, bedding blanket, and sugar bender in it to the washing machine. I checked the blanket for any lost gliders and put it in the washer, and when I grabbed the fleecey vine Saccharin came falling out of it! I snatched her up and put her in my shirt, she was no worse for wear, but PLEASE check everything before you wash!! I'd have never forgiven myself if I had just dumped their bedding in the washer instead of checking each item individually! I ran upstairs and double checked that they were both in their box before finishing.. what a scare!

Be careful!!!

hug2 I'm so glad you found her! How scary.

I'm so.. paranoid, you could say, about the laundry. I check as I'm putting it in the hamper, check the washer before I put anything in, then every piece of laundry, and then again as I'm putting it in the dryer. I've never had an accident but the thought scares me to death!

No problem, I'm so grateful nothing happened! Saccharin was pretty mad at me, though, for just shoving her down my shirt and running up the stairs.
Now I check everything before it leaves the room, and again at the machines!

To see me washing the glider laundry you'd think I have a serious case of OCD. I check everything as I take it from the cage, put it in the hamper, and put it in the washer. I can only imagine how you felt seeing him tumble out.

a few years ago I had a similar incident.

I had a pair with joeys.

went to hose down the cage outside. so I took out the sleeping pouch and looked inside, I saw mom and dad. it was the middle of the day and the babies were to young to be venturing out yet (so I thought)

so, i turned the hose on and heard a crab...in a coconut was a baby. He didn't get wet but gave me a scare of a lifetime.

I now do baby counts before hose downs.
