SG Beginner List - 07/14/09 01:33 PM

I just thought of a good idea for the TGI booth. I want to put together a list of 'Waht you need and should buy BEFORE buying a sugar glider'.

I'd like to make a list so that potential owners can do more research along with the info we have about gliders & TGI. This way, should they decide to get a glider, they will be prepared before buying one. Everyone I talk to who is interested, I refer here to GC for more research and learning.

So, I would like to ask for some help in ideas for this list for beginners. I know what to include, I just don't want to forget anything. thanks

If you can also add some links to your suggestions, that would be GREAT!!

2 cages - one travel/quarantine, one regular.
A diet plan, and food! Make sure it's prepared when they come home.
Emergency kit! I wish I had one of these, and I intend on making one BEFORE I adopt. An e-collar should be in this, 1 per glider and at least 1 extra.
VETS! Local exotics vets AND emergency vets. CALL THEM FIRST and ask if they deal with gliders!
Safe toys and pouches. laugh
Hmm..I know there is more, but I'm having a brainfart. tounge

Treats and licky treats
water bottle
a good, safe bonding pouch or three (lol)
a safe wheel or two
nail clippers if they aren't already in the e-kit
food bowls, maybe a glider kitchen
cage cover is always a good idea
tent or place set up for playtime
extra toys and pouches for rotating

Bonding pouch hanging by each cage in case of emergency as well as an emergency kit. I always have baby foods like chicken, apples & chicken, squash, sweet potatoes, applesauce and dried fruits for an emergency like a power outage, storm evacuation or I got busy & forgot to make HPW! I hate when that happens! lol
