Rue and Liv had joeys! OOP on November 5th. They are both little boys named Baxter and Felix, one standard and one whitefaced.
Hi, I'm Sierra! I'm 18. I live out in the country with lots of animals. I've been around animals my entire life and was introduced to Rue, my glider, about six months ago. My boyfriend's younger brother wanted a glider for Christmas. His mother bought Rue from a local breeder. After only a week, the kid (11) was tired of him. The whole family was "scared" of his crabbing noise. They also believed that he was okay with just some pellets and apples. He was also in a little tiny cage in the dining room. Since he was in the family "hang out", it was constantly loud with dogs barking and a two-year old screaming.
I would come over every other night and hold Rue. I would take him into the bathroom where it was quiet and just feel sorry for him. It became time that they decided they would sell him on Craigslist. I didn't want the little guy, who I had come to love, just going to any stranger. So I instantly volunteered to take him. I brought him home in his little cage. He didn't have a pouch or any toys, just a sock. I held the sock close to me all day while I researched all that I could about gliders. I purchased a large cage, lots of toys, pouches, and got him on a good diet. Now I have his love Lively (Liv) and they are doing great!
Other than that, I just spend my time chilling with my boyfriend of two and a half years, our gliders, and our bulldog Piper.
