(A photo of me almost a year ago!)
My name is Stitch, and I am a sugar glider, really…. no stop laughing, I really am a sugar glider!
I wanted to take a moment and answer a question many of you humans seem to have the first time one sees me after they say how cute I am of course.
“What is that!” they all ask!
I am a standard Grey sugar glider. I am all boy! You can tell this very quickly by looking at the top of my head, this bald spot is one of my sent glands. At the time it was a little yucky because without a friend to groom me, I was a bit stressed, board, and not loving myself like I should.
You see I was a class pet before my human family found me. While my teacher was doing the best job she knew how, she must not have known how lonely I would get as I am nocturnal, and so I sleep all day, or try to, and I am up all night. Between the kids trying to love me, and bell ringing all the time, it was hard to get the sleep my health requires. At night I was awake and alone with not near enough to do.
To take care of an amazing animal like me you must know the facts. The first fact is that sugar gliders are from parts of Australia, including islands around it like Tasmania. We like the warm nights! Sites like Wiki can help you learn more about this area of course! Wild gliders are used to living in big forests with lost of food. Big though is the first key.
I need a cage with in a good home that is at least 32″ x 20″ x 36″ with bar spacing no bigger than 1/2″ as I will try and get out to come see you if I can. I like exploring and out of cage time is important! If you can not give a sugar glider a home at least this big, please do not torture them with something smaller! I will bite you if you do! Just saying!
