Babies & Bladder Infections

Hey friends. Life here in the glider world has been a whirlwind lately! I’ve been really busy with the joeys. They are such a joy. I’m treasuring every moment with them – especially because I know that these are my last joeys (at least in the near future). It’s so bittersweet watching them grow. Every day brings me closer to…

Apollo Wheel VS Silent Runner

A wheel is a vital part of any sugar glider cage. It provides them with exercise, entertainment and it is a stress reliever. My gliders run on their wheel (off and on) for hours. I have no idea what they’d do without it! It’s important to find a good, glider safe wheel. Hamsters wheels are absolutely NOT SAFE. Anything that…

Myths & Methods of Neutering

Today I will be talking about the different methods of neutering, some myths that surround it and important things to know before sending your boy off to the vet. For a more in depth look at what the neutering day and recovery looked like, check out my other post here where I shared my experience with Ink’s neuter. Methods of…

Ink’s Neuter: What To Expect

Hello friends. Today I’m going to be sharing my experience with getting a sugar glider neutered. I will be doing a whole different post about myths, methods and other such things related to neutering. This post, however, is just about Ink’s neuter. After a lot of thought and consideration of Dreamer’s health, I decided that I would get Ink neutered.…

5 Reasons Play Dates Are Harmful

I hear a lot of people talking about doing play dates with their sugar gliders. I personally am very against the idea. Here are five reasons that play dates can be harmful to your gliders. One: Passing Sicknesses When a person gets a new sugar glider, that glider is almost always quarantined for a month before being introduced to the…

My Favorite Recourses

Hey guys! I have a bunch of stuff to do today and am running out of time, lol. SO this post won’t be too in depth. 🙂 I’m going to be sharing my favorite sugar glider resources – places where I have learned and grown! I hope that you will find these helpful as well. Forums Both of these forums…

Road Trips: Three Week OOP Joeys

Before I begin, let me say that I would NOT recommend traveling with joeys this young. Travel stresses gliders very much and this is a time that you want to keep stress as low as possible to reduce the risk of rejection or worse cannibalization. However, if you do not have anyone who is trained in caring for gliders (especially…

Glider Safe Treats

People say that the way to a glider’s heart is through its stomach. That is a very true statement. Sugar gliders LOVE sweet things. It is important to remember that treats should be fed in moderation. Too much is not healthy for them. That said, I have a bucket load of treat ideas that you can use for bonding time!…

Inexpensive Toy Ideas

Toys that are marketed to sugar glider owners are INSAINLY expensive for what they are. Because sugar gliders are an exotic pet, people price the toys incredibly high. What’s sad about it is that half of the things that are sold as “safe for a sugar glider” really aren’t. Anything that has strings, many metal toys, anything with small parts…NOT…
