Cuddling with the unfriendly glider - 03/24/16 06:37 AM

I have a glider named Tweety . She was mishandled as a Joey and doesn't like hands. I have had her almost two years now and her cage is by my bed she will get on my shoulder in the bonding tent but that is pretty much as friendly as she gets. Tonight I grabbed the pouch out of the cage because that is how she likes to be transferred to the bonding pouch. She is pouch mates with Bo..Bo is super friendly so when a nose came out I thought it was him.I put the pouch next to my cheek and rub the little nose and ears with my nose and we have real friendly chirping going on then all the sudden a little hand grabs my nose and I have been loving on Tweety. I put her in the bonding pouch .no matter how hard she tries she can't take back that snuggle

Yay!

I had that experience 1 time with Dot. Fiona is my snuggler, Dot likes to be left alone. One morning when I thought I had Fiona, she crawled on my lap, I craddled her in the bottom of my shirt, she took a nap... I was a bit startled to discover it was Dot. It made me feel bad because I had labeled her as a non cuddler... That was the only time she ever did that. But I will do it again now that I know she is OK with it. If I ever get a chance.

Come to think of it, I had something similar with Merlin last night. I thought it was Morgana since she's always jumping on my arm as I've straightening the cage... but after a little while I noticed she was on the door wanting out. Then I looked closer to realize it was Merlin I'd been playing with!!

Hopefully, that is a trend that will continue smile Well, not me being unable to know which glider I have, but Merlin wanting to play with me. Details, details.

Tweety surprised me that time. I must say she is way more friendly that she used to be
