Also, I saw a couple people with cages from martinscages. Aren't these the cages causing sugar gliders to have seizures? Once again, not trying to offend anyone lol.

Even with five gliders in the cage I don't need shower curtains with the glider kitchen. 'Course, it looks like a bomb went off in there every morning.





what type of wood/branch is that in there?

We have to talk cages dooney! Tell me more about your cage & I want all the details, nitty gritty all of it!
LOL, I need info to compare to another similar one I've had my eye on recently.

BTW, your cage looks AWESOME!!! Love the fall colors, is that the usual theme or is that season specific?

OOPs! Just noticed not your cage, so OP of the above, give me details please!!!!!

Love it, & the football team spirit! My husband & I like opposing teams, so could never do a football theme, it would be a huge rivalry, lol.

I like those 2 tree stub hide-aways at the bottom corners.

I always like looking at this thread to get cage decorating ideas and thought I'd bring this post back for fun. Since I am not quite done with my first sewing machine cage set I do have a no sew fleece set up. I moved a few things around in my cage and wanted to show it to y'all. SHOW YOUR CAGES! LONG LIVE THIS POST
This is my baby girls cage set up for now.
The pokeball pouch on the right was made by Cheryl on Ebay and can be found here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/321326537172

So this is my cage, I ordered it off of http://www.sugar-glider-store.com its about 150 plus shipping now. I'm also looking to buy the one up from it that is double the size, meant to house up to 8 gliders (of course it will only house my 4 still, but they'll have even more room) The blankets are kept on top because cats suck and sugar gliders throw food.

This is the cage I built from PVC pipe and hardware cloth. I used the drop pan from my Brisbane cage and used those dimensions to build from, but mine is almost 5 1/2 feet tall. No one escaped and they went to sleep in the easy pouch to get to. Also there is a giant door for cleaning purposes or locating hiding pets

So, I'm getting a pair of gliders around NYE and want to make sure I have all the essentials before they are ready to come home with me - and I haven't been able to find any sort of list of things to put in the cages.

Could anyone be nice enough to post not where you got the cage, but generally what all you put in the cage, where you got it, and how much they like it? I got the basics like the kitchens (I'm going to use chinchilla igloos on the floor for each glider), a wheel with nail trimmer... but I'm finding such mixed reviews on toys and cage sets (mesh vs fleece, etc) that I figured I would go here to the folks that know suggie tastes best haha.

Plus anything unique you have that you would recommend, please!

Thanks!

Congrats on your new babies you will be getting. There isn't anything in particular you have to have other than a fleece pouch for them to sleep in but things you should have are:

Hanging and swinging toys ie ropes, rings, pouches, landing pads, just anything they can run and jump and play on. (best if fleece so their nails don't get hung in them). Personally I made mine out of fleece blankets and plastic sewing rings. You can order "cage sets" here and I found some really great ones on etsy.com. If you want other ideas, plastic chains and toys are great. Just be sure there are no stickers on them. Some people put doll houses and cars and such for foraging toys also.
Running wheel. Everyone here recommends the raptor or stealth wheels because they are made specifically for gliders without an axle that can harm their tail in. They also have nail trimmers in them to keep their nails from getting too long.
Kitchens are not necessarily required but do help your cage from getting too messy because they are messy lil boogers when they eat and what I've found is best thing about them is it keeps urine and poo out of their food.
Hanging water bottle is a must, be sure to keep fresh water at all times.
Stay away from heat rocks, pads, lights etc. they are warm blooded and with a cage mate and plenty of warm fleece pouches they should be fine. If they are in an area that stays cold or has a lot of drafts, you can use space heater outside the cage. Just be sure you never put wires in the cage.
Lights aren't necessary but a red light bulb will allow you to see in the cage but doesn't hurt their eyes.

Well, I hope this helped. Feel free to ask if you have other questions. And make sure you posts pics when you get all set up!

Thank you! The heat rock was one of the things I was looking into, because I previously had a hedgehog (RIP Quiggs, lived 6 beautiful prickly years) and he had one that he loved but also was nothing like a glider. Also glad you recommend fleece, because I was leaning towards a mesh set haha. I found a pokeball pouch on etsy which I'm especially excited about because I'm giving one a pokemon name, but besides that I'll keep my eyes out for other little trinkets to throw in there, all the other cages have given me great ideas. I'm sure once I get them I'll continue to stuff their cage full as well haha thank you!


Also, where in the cage do your gliders prefer to have the wheel and pouches? I've heard pouches towards top and wheels middle, but I've also heard vise versa

I've seen a few cages with flowers and leaves that I'm pretty sure are fake.. Is that safe for the gliders? Even if it's on the outside of the cage, they could still grab at the leaves?

Was going to show off one of our girls room boy this cage thing has gone on for years I Still think The Fall foliege Cage is Coolest You can tell that person is very creative . I on the other hand had to ask gliders what to DO Our room looks more like a 5 yo play room. But as we lay in bed and watch them on webcam we put 2 in different areas so we can see everything Its funny several times we look up to see them with face looking straight in cammera Check out my pics. I take more glider pics than anyone I know but am always carful not to use flash or when I do its long distence.

I am having a good giggle - Im a teacher and always looking for ideas for my classroom - you all would be top classroom decorators!!! So many ideas here! Great!! I have a question and I am sorry if it has already been answered but should a cage have enough room for the SG's to glide to an extent? I am for lots of toys and fun play accessories but just wanted to check if my cage must have space as well?

This thread is awesome!!! Thanks!

sorry - another question - how do you keep the log or branches sanitised/clean? Will it be a problem that I live in an apartment and cant put my cage in the sun when I do a big clean?

Most standard cages do not offer enough room for gliders to really glide but they do seem to like some open space in the cage for jumping from one side to the other.

My gliders will only glide when they can get somewhere high like the top of the window blinds or curtain rod where they can really launch themselves a pretty good distance.
 Look what I found on Ebay
