That's exactly what I did before I got my first pair. I started 6 months in advance getting everything I needed for them. And I also learned how to sew my own cage sets. I'm currently in the process in becoming an approved vendor for cage sets, toys, and kitchens. Do you plan on sewing your own cage sets again? If so do you know all the safety rules to follow? If not I have a copy of them I could send you if you'd like. Also, if you have a Facebook I would highly suggest joining the sugar glider guardians group. It's an amazing resource for new owerns or even experienced owners. They offer a free mentor program if you feel like you would like one. And if you don't, if you ever have questions, there are a ton of experienced owners on there always willing to help. Sugar glider Guardians is also a rescue. Last year they managed to rescue 500 gliders from being Euthanized because of irresponsible breeders that literally Tortured these poor babies. All together they had over 2000 gliders at their Establishment, and atleast 200 of those gliders were dead inside the tiny cage they were kept in, with nothing but a pbc pipe to sleep in, rotting food, nasty water, and covered in feces. And almost more then half has teeth abcess, and so much more. Females gliders were found carrying dead Joey's in their pouch. They managed to get 500 gliders restored back to full health, and all were adopted out. It is an amazing group with amazing people that all just have a passion for sugar gliders.
