Judah has been off his feed since Anson died. Although he still gets up and uses the wheel, he is reluctant to leave his pouch even for yogies treats. There was another orphaned glider available for adoption upstate from me so I contacted the owners. They rightfully wanted some pictures/video of my cage and setup so they knew their little Nala would be going into a real home so I sent them some then made arrangements to go pick her up on Monday since I had the day off.

I set up Nalas cage downstairs in the family room for quarantine purposes but will move her upstairs to the living room next to the main cage after quarantine (just before Christmas). Today, we went to the vet to start a record and get a wellness check. Everything is A-OK and they said shes the friendliest glider theyve ever seen not a peep from her other than wanting to explore the examination room and having the greatest time gliding from person to person.

I will probably try to get some additional gliders her age to add to the newly growing colony so shes not in the same position Judah is (theres a 6 year age difference between them) in a few years or so but am going to take it slow and easy on that. Task 1 is to first them these two used to each other and integrated over the coming months.

I knew Nala was well-behaved but she was just amazing at the vets. All props to her former skin parents (@Jayburg).
 Look what I found on Ebay

Wow, that was easy. Got home at the end of the day of errands and realized I still hadn't done intros this weekend so I took them both into a bathroom in their respective pouches. I gently set them both down in the dry tub (making sure the door was closed and the toilet lid was down!) with the pouches facing each other.

Judah worried me at first as his first reaction was to crab and retreat back into his pouch while Nala was looking on curiously. After several minutes of them just hiding from each other, I gently shook Judah from his pouch and removed it. He cautiously went over to Nala's pouch and when she didn't react, he crawled in, groomed her for a bit, then they cuddled up in the pouch together (swirling a little to find a good "together" position.

I put both pouches back in the main flight cage and removed one of Judah's wheels (left his favorite). I put Nala's favorite wheel and her foraging toy box in the main cage then buttoned it up.

Meanwhile, 2 more adoptees from TPG are off in the dining room going through quarantine. They just got here 2 Fridays ago so still have some time before I moved them into the cage next to the main flight cage. I don't know how that intro is going to go but at least I've got it to 2 pairs now.
