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…

Meet The Gliders

Many of you already know about my gliders, but I realized that I’ve never done an official post introducing you all to my babies. 😉 Today you’ll get to meet all four of them and hear a bit of the story behind them and their names. Ink and Dreamer are my first and original pair. I got them early in…

(Yet Another) $ Store Haul

Yep, you guessed it. We went to the Dollar Store again today and I couldn’t resist getting a few more things for my gliders. The $ Store is one of my favorite places to buy cheap, fun toy parts. 🙂 I found some great things today! First off, I found a 9-pack of these cute bracelets. Dreamer is a tail-carrier…

A Tale Of The Barking Glider

A couple nights ago, I was getting ready to play with Ink and Dreamer. As it is, I still have the pairs separated – Ink and Dreamer in one cage, Ilona and Yiska in the other. In any case, I’d just taken Ink and Dreamer out of their cage when the A/C turned on. It spooked Ilona and she started…

I was…

Back in February, a sweet lady decided to rehome her gliders. After a lot of consideration, I decided that I would get them. I’ll be picking them up on April…

Is It Worth It?

Sometimes I ask myself, “Is it worth it to have sugar gliders?” There are a lot of reasons why someone wouldn’t like to have a glider as a pet. They’re nocturnal, they require a lot of time and space, they need vigilant owners to be able to catch early signs of sickness, they have to be taken to exotic vets,…

Inside The Head Of A Chronic Worrier

I am a chronic worrier. It’s so easy for me to get paranoid. I think I was born with this flaw. When I was little (like seven or eight) I would memorize symptoms of ecoli, cancer and other sicknesses like that. If I had had the chance, I would have memorized the indications of scurvy. I even memorized the signs…
