Many of you might remember the 'Abigail fiasco' in September. Well, yesterday afternoon we finally brought home our little sugar glider. (for those wondering what the heck is a sugar glider, here's a site with some basic info). Jingle Bell is an early Christmas present for the girls...okay, for myself. We're really excited to have her in our lives.
So far, the poor little thing is a bit upset. And, understandably so. She's only eight weeks OOP (out of pouch) and was taken away from mom and dad last Friday. Today she was taken away from the only family she's known and came to our house. If I were her I'd be a extremely irritated too.
All things considered, I think she's doing remarkably well. She only crabs (a sound that remarkably resembles an electric pencil sharpener) at us when we actually touch the pouch that she's sitting inside. We can talk to her, look at her, even stick our hands in the cage without her lunging at us. I'm really hoping that by the end of the long weekend we'll be able to touch the pouch, or even her without fear of being bitten.
So far I haven't been able to get any current pictures of her in her new home, this picture was sent to us by her first mommy a couple weeks ago. Isn't she cute?
So, did you get any early Christmas presents?
