Thanks for the help! I wasn't sure I was doing the right thing, not letting her get used to her cage. After I thought about it I decided what she really needed was warmth and security. I think she is bonding very well. Last night when she finally woke up she was licking yogurt off my fingers and eating an apple I gave her. She seems really sweet and tame. She doesn't seem so scared anymore and I haven't heard her cry anymore. She didn't complain at all when I put her in the bonding pouch. She is snuggled up and sleeping quietly. One thing I noticed last night is when I had her in the pouch and she would fall asleep she would start twitching and then try to nurse on the pouch. After I fed her and she fell asleep, she would hold her hands up as if she was eating.
