Bringing the Babies Home

Today Mr. K, Tenie, Roscoe, Glacier and I will take a two hour train ride into the Highlands of Scotland to pick up our Sugar Glider joeys. The breeder has said she'll sit down and have a chat with us before we take the little beasties home. I am super excited, but as with most new things, a bit nervous. Here are these little creatures that we will be responsible for,  who can glide around the room and cling to something as little as a piece of paper taped to the wall.
We think the cage is ready and I hope that it is. Mr. K even went across the street to the little park and got branches for Gus and Fiona to chew on and run up. Two sleeping pouches have been also put in the cage as well as the Snuggle Safe heating pad. I am just going to fill the two water bottles we have for them before we leave to ensure they have a fresh water supply available as soon as they get home.
We're not supposed to touch them for the first two days, which I think may be a bit hard. I love fuzzy things and fuzzy things must be pet, snuggled and squished.
Anyway, I best be getting off as Glacier and Roscoe still need to relieve before we trek over to the bus stop.
Lots of Sugie updates to follow.
Wish us luck. :)

Hi Y'all,

I can't imagine not being able to touch them for 2 whole days! Especially since you can't see them...what torture!

Good luck with the boys and the gliders on the trip.

Y'all come by now,
Hawk aka BrownDog
