So, probably, I will start posting something more personal. I adopt these two babies sugar gliders for the last three days. They’re pretty naughty for the first. They will bite you, scratch you, poop on you, and try to run away from you. But by time, they will get to know you and stick with you like a glue. They’re nocturnals, means they get active at nights. The right one is a male and the left one is a female, any name suggestions? :D
We are best friends
This is how I always look when on Tumblr hehe
Hey ya. Good morning #nachothesugarglider #sugarglider (Setapak Green에서)
Hahaha, Orion is winking #sugarglider #sugargliders #sugarbabies #love
I have some sad news. It turns out I won’t be able to keep my sugar gliders. I know I’ve only had them a few days, but I keep thinking about the future, and I’m afraid that I won’t have enough time to devote to them. With the holidays coming up and school stuff, it wouldn’t be fair to keep them knowing I won’t have enough time to spend with them. I’m heartbroken, but I do believe this is for the best. They deserve a loving home that can give them the attention they need, and maybe I can try again in the future. Thanks to those of you who supported my initial decision, I hope you can support this one too.
I don’t want to add insult to injury to the OP because I certainly feel for her but this is the type of thing that happens all the time and can be avoided. Gliders are common purchased on impulse and shortly rehomed, causing not only emotional harm to the human but the gliders being shifted around is not good for them physically or emotionally.
This is why anyone who comes to me (or not sometimes) expressing a desire for gliders I have to spell out exactly what it takes to care for them including the monetary means and time required. But I also have print outs and encourage them to read, read, read!
Many gliders a rehomed because people “don’t have enough time” This may be a permanent solution to a temporary problem. A busy season, semester, or year does not mean you have rehome your gliders. As long as you are taking proper care of them (cage, food, environment), missing out on some bonding or play time can be overcome. Gliders can be resilient. This final semester is really rough for my schedule and my gliders are doing great!
I’m sorry to the OP but I hope others can learn from this.
If anyone is interested In SUGAR GLIDERS and lives in NY (Brooklyn ,queens, Long Island ) or a city In jersey close to NY ,message me for info
So anyone who has raised sugar gliders knows it’s not easy at all a lot of times and it requires a lot of patience.
Nala and Meeka were adopted by me and my boyfriend for our male shuggie, Momo. Nala is a year and Meeka is 6months. So while the latter is very curious and even affectionate, the former has been very cautious of me, to say the least.
So today was the first day Nala didn’t bite me hard and actually climbed on me without much hassle. She also let me pet her on her head which has never happened before without getting a bad bite.
Needless to say I’m extremely happy and relieved with this small progress. It’ll be difficult but so worthh it when we eventually bond.
Someone was awake early today so we hung out on the couch for a bit.
RIP Artemis. You were the best babe.
