 My boyfriends had his glider for 4 years and shes always been alone

My boyfriend got his glider about 4 years ago with his ex. They kept her alone and never tried to socialize her or even bond with her. Ive been with him for 2 years now and I try to give her as much attention as possible, but Im afraid she might be too old to bond. But Ive read many articles about how her being alone could make her depressed and harm herself..and Ive also read that since she is so old that she might not take too kindly to a roommate. Please help! I want her to have the best life possible!

I agree. She does need a friend she will live about another eight years to another 11 years so get her a mate and bond slowly.

Gliders are social mammals and must be in at least pairs or more. The Glider after 4 yrs of being alone may have become accustomed to the environment but if you are up to the care required for these precious pets you could acquire a rescue Glider and see if she will allow a buddy to be with her. Explain your situation to the Rescue Center and be sure that they will allow for the return if the situation does not work out. There are very informative sites with instructions on how to introduce new Gliders to each other. Your heart is in the right place. Your boyfriends, not so much. Gliders become bonded to their human and their cage-mate. She has had neither!
