Welcome to Glidinglight home of adorable sugar gliders (pocket pets). USDA licensed (32-A-0198), in Indiana and will sometimes deliver to KY, OH, MI, IL or possibly meet 1/2 way from March 1st to November 15th.
My name is Linda (email@example.com) and I live in Northern Indiana. I have been raising sugar gliders for nearly 20 years. How time flies! With 5 children, 10 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. I am now retired as are some of my sugar gliding pairs.
Currently I have 12 pairs bearing beautiful standard grey babies. These babies (joeys) are all very spoiled and held and played with from about the 1st week oop (out of pouch). I leave my babies with mom and dad until they begin to explore the cage and nibble at mom and dad's dinner. I firmly believe that mom's milk is best and any replacement milk or formula is just that...a replacement.
Somewhere between 4 and 6 weeks old I begin to hand raise the baby. At this point if you are adopting a baby you may visit him or her. I do ask that only one or two people come for the visit. If more are necessary please let me know in advance. At this time I also ask that you bring or send several pieces of 3x5 fabric with your scent to begin the bonding process.
I am now also breeding leucistics and have 4 sets, Adam & Cassie or Callie and Andy & Abby or Allie, who have excellent ancestry. I am very excited to announce that their first babies arrived and are in new loving homes. If you are interested in leucistics contact me for their lineage on the pet glider site. The waiting list for leucistics may be a little longer than for a standard baby so check for availability.
Along with the gliders we have a few more family members. For many years my husband Bob and I adopted and fostered retired grey hounds. After our 5th one passed away we found Charlie, a shih tzu, that needed a home. And to be honest I always wanted a lap dog! We then adopted another shih tzu named Barney. Since we both still worked we thought that Charlie should have a playmate. Then along came Abby and Sammy who are shih tzu mixes that we rescued from our local shelter. And, last but not least is Elliot, our African Grey parrot. He watches over all of us. He is 8 years old and is very vocal.
My website will take you through some information on how to adopt a sugar glider from me, care of a sugar glider and some other basic information. Any links on my site are directing you to information from other sites that I feel may be helpful or interesting to you. I am not suggesting or supporting any advertising on these sites.
Also, please remember to take anything you read online with a grain of salt. Very few sites are regulated and even fewer allow a person to refute any negative feedback left by, typically, anonymous users. Some breeders, and particularly pet stores, can be very competitive and some are willing to say or do anything to get you to buy from them. So, do your research but make your final decisions based on what you can verify yourself.
