I was wondering where I could get a first aid kit for my gliders or at least some first aid supplies, just in case something happens I would like to be prepared

oh, the Neosporin with Pain Relief and Prep H should only be used with an ecollar as you don't want them licking that stuff...

Could you give the measurements for the small and large fleece squares? Also the fleece strips?

And what is a glider-sized cuddle buddy?

A cuddle buddy is a small glider size stuffed animal. Just make sure all the parts on it are safe and don't come off. DIY fleece stuffed buddy is the best.
