Mickey and Minnie are dead

 Mickey and Minnie are dead

I was just informed after my own query that Mickey and Minnie and family are dead. I didnt like Minnie much but I did respect her especially after she was able to pair with Mickey and have offspring. Mickey was a sweetheart and I might liked to have kept him for myself. I will take this as an affirmation that not all families are able to take care of sugar gliders and I should be much more picky as to who I give one to. Perhaps this is why rescues always have too many animals How can you adopt out an animal in good conscience knowing that there is a 50% chance that the family will kill it.

Max had a few of his friends spend the night and one of them got up during the night and took Mickey out and did not put him back in the cage. I found him dead the next morning. Minnie and the babies were doing fine for two days; but after that they all died and I have no idea why. They had plenty of food and water and seemed healthy. I had been handling the babies and they seemed to be growing. Max and I were heartbroken. Happy for you that Buddy finally got his act together.
