"Suggies are animals that need a lot of dedication. Before getting one make sure you have everything set up. Glider proof any rooms that the glider will be in, make sure you have a bonding pouch, and prepare the money to buy two. After getting your sugar gliders, you should use the pouch for them to sleep in for a while. This way, during the day, their easy to remove to carry around. Another idea is get a shirt and attach a pocket to it. Wear it a few days prior to buying the suggies and after that, let them sleep in the pocket for the first week. This way, they get very accustom to your scent and think will help bonding greatly. Still, you must take the shirt out every day and keep it with you. Either wear it or carry it with you. Wearing a shirt many days in a row many not sound like the most fun thing in the world, but it works well. Another piece of advice is for when you have to go away for vacation or something similer. A week before you have to go, put a pillow case on one of your pillows. A cheap one since your going to lose it. After the week, when your sending them to your petsitter, tie the case into knots and give it to them. Because its smothered with your scent, this will make the separation a little easier because then they feel as if their human isn't that far away. A recording of your voice may be a good idea as well. Diet wise, I feed my babies Leadbeater mix (Look it up if you don't know what it is, it has supplaments and stuff in it.) and either fresh food or baby food. I find gerbers DHA food a very good choice. Its sweet, has fruit, and is well enriched with many good things for them, calcium especially. One thing that can't be stressed enough is making sure they get plenty of calcium, it is deadly for them if they don't."
