New to here and looking for advice on missing glider! - 09/14/17 08:25 PM
Hi there, I made this account because I lost my glider somewhere in the house last night. I have two gliders that are bonded named Saoirse and Alaia. A few times a week I let them run around the living room while I get ready for bed. Last night was normal and I was in the bathroom and came our after about 15mins and only Saoirse was hopping around. This isn't too weird because they are super curious and are always getting into things and I usually know where to look. However last night was the first time I could not figure out where Alaia had gone whatsoever. All the doors and windows to the outside were shut besides the bathroom window, but I would have noticed had she somehow even reached it since I was in there the entire time. I sjut the toilet lid and I checked in the chair/couches, my roommates room who is out of town, under the fridge, and the upstairs where I live. I now see that I should have shut more doors because there is so many places she could get in to, but they don't usually stay in one spot for long since they had just woken up. I ended up putting Saoirse away so I wouldn't lose her as well and I had to be up in 5 hours for work. I left food and water out near the cage figuring Alaia would eat that and hopefully go to bed in a pouch I left out. To my dismay this morning when I got up the food was untouched and there is still no sign of her. She hadn't eaten or drank much before I let them out as far as I saw and now I feel absolutely terrible because though she's probably sleeping, she is also probably hungry and dehydrated... my only thought is that she has to be somewhere she couldn't get out of to not have eaten the food. Honestly til she hopefully wakes up tonight I probably won't find her, but does anyone have any other suggestions on where to look? I went home on my lunch and poked around since she usually crabs when awoken, but I couldn't find her and my poor little Saoirse who isn't usually up at this hour kept poking her head out of her pouch. It was breaking my heart knowing she is looking for Alaia. They are both a little over a year old and have been bonded since a year ago and haven't spent a day apart since... I am praying Alaia turns up tonight.
