Hmmm:

-Cleaning!! (food off the floor and walls, scrubbing poop off the plastic toys...)
-Pet odor
-Finding "presents" when they run around outside of the cage
-[censored] out when they grab something they're not supposed to and try to eat it
-Expensive vet visits
-Nail clipping!!!!!!
-Making evening and weekend/vacation plans around them (finding a reliable babysitter or packing them up and taking them with me....)

But that's ok...definitely worth it for the playtime, cuddling, bragging about them to others like they're children, getting creative with their rept.... <3

The only thing I do not like is the barking in the middle of the night. I have BIG TIME BARKERS! I get one cage to stop then the other two will start. It is never ending they have me trained to get up when they bark. And when they see me and I talk to them they stop. Brats. shakehead

I have done this too, lately I have been able to stop on my way to Iowa and take their dishes out, but if I am running late I call Jeff and he will take them out, but he won't clean them like I do.

I don't like cleaning cages, mainly because I need help getting the cages outside.

I hate the bi-monthly cleaning. I do a lot of spot cleaning, but when I have to go hose down the ENTIRE cage... I have to move my dresser, then drag the thing downstairs and take it outside without letting any of the dogs out.... EEESH. I would do it every month, but it's SUCH a hassle, and I do a lot of spot cleaning in between. shakehead

And I would also say cleaning the cages. I am a freak about their cages being clean. Every week I take apart their whole cage and clean it toys and all. And every day I wipe it down, the wheel, inside of the cage and most of all the bottom grate. I hate for them to step on old food or poop that got stuck to the wheel or cage.

The worst part for me is having one pass away. Part of your heart goes with them. the pain is unbearable, unreal, unimaginable! other than that finding a vet that will listen can be a pain in the rear.

1. I haven't lost a suggie, but what I don't like about owning a sugar glider is the fear of losing one of my boys. It drives me insane to even think about it.

2. People who don't own suggies and they just cannot seem to understand our love for our babies.

3. People neglecting these beautiful fuzzbuts.

The rest I love, I love everything about them.

Saying goodbye. I have lost one glider who was 10 and saying goodbye and letting him go was the WORST thing about owning a glider frown

I also am NOT a big fan of scrubbing cages either.

LOL I asked my hubby this question...

waiting for an answer....

ummm.....

I finally yell out "well?"

He says "I cant think of anything"

Ha but that's because I do all the cleaning, the poop and pee we dont care. And I enjoy cleaning their cages, I just HATE cleaning my house! If a sugar glider "owner" lived near me that didnt like to clean cages...I would clean their cages for them but they would have to clean my house!haha I should live in a barn...

I LOVE to make their dinners....but my son has learned to cook for himself, ummm I wouldnt get mom of the year I guess.

I will NOT say goodbye, I will say, "see ya later" because in my heart of hearts I beleive all animals have a place in paradise where they wait for us and entertain God with their funny antics. (bet Jesus keeps a glider in his robe pocket)

people who neglect ANY animal should be....(forgive me Lord for my nasty thoughts)
ha
boy am I playful tonight!

The biggest thing is cleaning the cages .The bigger breeders I don't see how they do it .Cause cleaning five is enough for me.


Having Faith and Hope that some day soon.That all the world will come to see that all of gods babies deserve love and affection.

I hate the constant worry!
I feel like all I do is check eyes and tails and noses and toes. Are they sick?? Are they eating right?? Why are they barking at 4:30 in the morning, is something wrong?? I locked the cage right...and put the toilet seat down?? ETC ETC!!
I feel like I could worry myself right into a huge ulcer!!

I hate having to be away from them when I cannot bring them with me frown

I also don't like watching my wonderful man Basil go through loosing his mate Pepper due to old age. They are between 9 and 13 years old now and it is really hard to hear an adult glider cry and cling to you because he is so lonely.

I would have to say nail clipping and not being able to really sleep in on my days off. lol. My barker, Aiko, will bark at about 5:30 am if I'm not already up and she will continue barking until I finally get up and come to the cage to look at her cute little face. lol.

Today is the first day I went to work without Tuck, and I'll tell you guys other then the nail clippings I just can't stand being away from him, I worry and had to call hubby 3 time to ask if the cage was locked, did I remember to remove last nights dish, is he sleeping still... Until he gave up put him in a pouch and brought him to me... lol

So I would say, the nails and the worry.

I agree too, but I also don't like the biting of new gliders. If you get bit by a glider you are bonded with like during nail clipping, it doesn't hurt. IMO

I love mostly everything about them, but do wish there was aneasier way to clean cages, more affordable vets and people who understand about their care better! I do worry about leaving them behind when I go to a gathering or even out for the evening! I can't possibly take them all with me and no one loves them like I do!

This is a great topic. I haven't seen where anyone who takes care of their animals says anything but that they love owning them. I've only had Lilo for a little over a month, but she is a joy. My biggest complaint is that I wish I could take her with me to work. I miss her during the day. I do agree with the other person who said that it would be nice to be able to spoil her more! Her new cage came today though, so I'm super excited about that.
