Gotta new boyfriend

 Gotta new boyfriend

His name is Aerrow and he's a neutered Sugar Glider, bonded to my best friend Piper (mom to my darling Starling Sugar Glider). Got to use bonding pouch earlier this week with Aerrow, and able to finally (for a short time) handle him outside the cage and pouch just sitting in my open hand (with fleece glove) munching on wax worms... got to rub his cheeks and forehead, and caress his back. Such a tender yet strong gentleman Glider, and quite charming :-)

Yesterday I bonded again with Piper. Used bonding pouch, and just like Aerrow I was able to finally (for a short time) handle her outside the cage and pouch just sitting in my open hand (with fleece glove) munching on wax worms... she still managed to give me a small nip getting her to that point, but didn't hurt. Took some patience waiting out the growling tantrums, but in-between got some good petting in. Actually able to get some purr-like sounds out of her as she would finally surrender to my caresses. Afterwards, she seems more tame - she will still throw a growling tantrum, but only for a few seconds rather than the usual several minutes (until I dump her out of the nest where she'd stop - lingering nest protection mode...). However even the tantrums seem to occur less frequent. What a lady!

Then there's Starling, my boyfriend's little baby girl - she bonds with me daily, loving to be caressed and always looking for me when I enter the room (and such stirrings usually sets off Piper if they're in the same nest). Compared to the other two adults who are beautiful mature vibrant Sugar Gliders, she's still got a bit of the baby "Joy" in her - more hesitant yet adventurous...

We find consultations, we learn tricks with which we deceive ourselves, but the essential thing - the way - we do not find. Listen to the river...
