Bonding...Day 1 One nip on my finger in her pouch she went !! So far so good shes sleeping sound as long as i don't unzip my sweatshirt lol. She has been very good about taking applesauce off my finger tips and took some mango from my fingers using her hands today :)

Bonding Day 2! Made her a new pouch this morning, she seems to like much better and doesn't seem to mind my bad stitch work lol Much less fuss today to get her in the pouch not that there was much yesterday. And We decided on a name..... Leela. I did some youtube searching and found the easiest way for me to pick her up is flipping the bonding bag inside out and using it like an oven mit, gently picking her up and holding her kind of cupped then flipping the rest of the bag over her voillaaaaa she's in her bonding pouch no fuss no muss!! more importantly no biting or crabbing. She feels more secure an i feel more confident!

good morning Miss Leela !! Day 3 begins:) No crabbing at all! no nipping!! shes getting used to my hands and loving to be petted this morning she gets scrambled eggs for a treat and applesauce of course!!

Eggs were a huge success!!

Bonding Day 4 So far all is going according to plan! lol Today Leela and i are working on being held in my hands She doesn't seem to be afraid of our hands at all now, Even Darrins monster hands lol putting His tshirt on top of her house is helping her to bond with Him even though He hasn't been home to handle her very much. She's not afraid to take applesauce from his finger though she nibbles on his finger too lol not really a bite but like wheres the rest of it? kind of nibble.

Last night was the first time i saw her stretch out and show her "wings" i was so excited i forgot to take pics lol

yesterday and today i have noticed Leela is seeking out my hand under the pouch rather than avoiding my hand. She is also hanging out more at the top of the pouch now where the netting is and seems to like to snuggle into me if my hand isn't on the bottom of her pouch. Making pretty good progress!:)

 Loki...

Posted by: LianiK

I let Loki run around the room again last night. Ive been attempting to make it a nightly ritual so he can get more use to me. Unfortunately he still runs away every time I get close to him. The most he allows me to do is pet him in his bonding pouch. I don't know if we will ever have a close relationship. i am starting to loose hope here. I feel like maybe it was a mistake in a way getting him at 2 years old. I hope one day I'll be able to hold him in my hands and have him feel comfortable enough to let me pick him up. sighhh....

 Day 16

Posted by: cygnis

I've been stuffing my shirts into the sleeping pouch (without them inside, of course) so they can become more acclimated to my scent while they sleep, and I've noticed some progress.

Batman will come to me when I'm near the cage, but still tries to nibble any appendage that gets near enough to him--I really do wish that wouldn't happen, but I don't know what to do about it. He'll gnaw at my wrist bone if I try to hide my fingers. Recently, I've been touching the top of his head when he does it, and I believe it's turning into a sort of a game. I've read that it might be an attempt to groom me, but when I let him nibble, he'll keep going and scrape my skin off.

Robin allows me to pet him, despite he tends to be the shyest of the two.

 Day 2 tent time

Posted by: Toodles_Jennie

Had tent time for second time. Went well, the girls loved the live crickets. Both Toodles and Jennie will crawl into my hand when they want to get down but they prefer palm down not up. Toodles sometimes "naws" on me but stops if I move or talk to her. Switched to BML diet, they love the premix, but started eating less fruits and veggies.

 Boy or Girl??

Posted by: Carlene
-----
Hey everyone!! I could really use some help on this.... I purchased my sugar glider from a breeder about a month ago and when I did I asked for a girl. Well now I am noticing this fluffy ball looking thing at the bottom of the belly. I am now wondering if my "she" could really be a he, or possibly something really serious? I am unable to find a genitalia, or could be looking wrong...

 Very frustrating

Posted by: marisa0820

My newly adopted 2 year old glider hasn't shown any further signs of bonding with me other than coming to the cage door in the morning and sleeping in the pouch on my chest... It's been almost 3 months of having him and this is all the progress we've shown. I'm not really sure what to do anymore.

 New Suggie Mommies, Need Advice asap

Posted by: SuggieOreo

Hi ! So my twin and I are new to the whole Sugar glider process, so I have a few questions that I could really use some answers to! We got our sugar glider 3 days ago, she is approximately 3 years old her name is Oreo. How do we bond with a glider who has already been bonded with? I know you may suggest taking her out into a bonding pouch but we are kind've sheepish due to her crabbing and lunging ! I don't mind to take the process slowly as long as there is progress. Any food advice would be great, as well as cage set-up. Thank You
