Thursday, we brought our little Boo home, who is my first Sugar Glider. She's extremely sweet, and I definitely didn't expect to make so much progress in bonding with her so soon! It's definitely extremely rewarding, and I'm just unbelievably happy. I've been sleeping half the night (and most of last night) in her room, and sometimes I'll wake up and she's looking at me through the bars of her cage, sniffing. She barked quite a bit on Friday, although she didn't do it as much last night. :) I've been singing to her, reading books to her, and the like, and I'm so glad that she doesn't seem TOO frightened. I've gotten her out in her pouch and in a towel, and she's done so well...she'll crab for a bit, and then today she curled up and fell asleep when I had her against my chest.
The most shocking thing today was that she allowed me to pet her twice, and sort of half-pick her up, and she didn't bite, crab, or lunge! I'm so happy. I definitely didn't expect to be able to pet her anytime soon, and it's just so rewarding that she seems to be realizing, "Okay, she's not going to hurt me."
Mostly, I'm just happy. Today has been a good day, and I'm so glad and proud of Boo.
