Oh my gosh!
I leave for 5 days and what happened?
I agree that people shouldn't air their dirty laundry or attack each other, but I think this is important info that everyone needs to consider. If Jess, as much as she cares about Roo,
would consider leaving him home alone, then there are bound to be other generally responsible owners who don't know this is okay. By posting her thoughts on the subject to the board, Jane
was able to reach more people than if she had just emailed Jess. And just because Jess made an error in judgement does not make her irresponsible or bratty or anything. It just means she
didn't know what to do, which is why she ASKED! And why Jane replied! I didn't know all about the horrible things that happened to gliders with shipping until I read it on here...
No one is wrong...everyone just has different ideas and Jane and Bourbon and Sherry and Larry and Betsy CC and all those other experts have a lot of info we don't have, so I'm glad their around to
help out.
Okay, I'm off my can we all just get along?

: Jess left her Email address, if we must attack her personally why don't we just Email her, and post the constructive/informative info here? If you don't like my post just Email me, I always include an address. If all of you had left an address Jess could respond with out turning this into a lot of "playground posturing". Heck I could have Emailed you directly but you don't leave me that option. Please note: I'm not saying your wrong, (they are your feelings after all) or that Jess is right, just that sniping is inappropriate.
: my edit of Jane's post:"You can easily hire a petsitter. I get the person to come in midday and remove the old food and add a
: container of mixed frozen fruit and vegetables every day. The glider is not awake and so does not escape
: and the glider is fed fresh fruit. It is easy to hire a petsitter and I urge every responsible owner to do jusat
: that if they must leave their glider for a while. I have done this once a year for three years now. As my
: gliders are in pairs they are fine for a short while on their own. They are a bit miffed when I return but
: frankly my chinchillas resent it more."
