Help! Strange Noises! (Gliders In Heat)

All female sugar gliders – whether they are housed with intact males or not – will go into heat every 28 days. The timing can very from glider to glider, but once a month, you’re girl will be in heat. It can be slightly nerve-wracking if you don’t know what’s going on! The first time Dreamer went into heat, I…

Vanilla & Cardamom

I can’t believe how big the joeys are getting! They are just over nine weeks old. It has been so much fun to watch their personalities shine through. Vanilla is an explorer like her mama Dreamer. She doesn’t hesitate to check out new places and toys. She has a very sweet personality and as soon as I open the cage…

TPG vs OHPW

A few months ago, I decided to switch diets. I had been feeding TPG and after much research, decided to change to OHPW. I had several reasons for changing diets, but my main one was that my gliders were horribly stained. I talked to some knowledgeable glider people and we narrowed it down to three things.

Why I Chose An E-Jacket Over An E-Cone

I love research. So when I was about to have Ink neutered, I went on a research spree.

One of the first things that I found was how important it is to have an e-cone…

Dear New Owner: You’ve Got This

The day before I brought my babies home, I was sure that I knew what I was in for. I had done (minimal) research, I had made their food, I had looked at lots of adorable pictures and I was confident that I could take care of them and bond with them well. Well. None of that was true. I…

Another Inky Photo Shoot

Hey guys! I was in the mood to take pictures of my gliders. I set up my whole backdrop (the most painstaking part and it failed completely) and then found Inky. He’s my most gentle and calm glider, and thus he’s the most willing to sit while I take pictures. He wasn’t happy at being woken up, but he did…

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…
