Critter Corner Sweet Cuteness

Critter CornerThought I would share some critter cuteness from this past weekend.

Back in the end of August, I mentioned that we sorta kinda ended up with two new additions to The Menagerie…2 baby sugar gliders, Gumdrop and Skittles.

Pretty much every day since then, they have been spending a couple of hours (or more) each day with me in a bonding pouch, learning my smell and getting to know me. They also learn to get used to being handled and to know I am not going to hurt them. They are very little critters after all and humans seem like giants to them…so it takes a little while from them to learn to trust you. Being able to have them with me during the day though is pretty cool…they come with me running errands and to pet sitting visits or when we go out to do things in the afternoon or early evening.

Sugar gliders are nocturnal animals, so most of the day they spend sleeping, which makes for the perfect situation for them to hang out in a bonding pouch for a few hours during the day getting used to me, even while they are sleeping. And then they wake up in the evenings and are up and about and ready to play.

Anyway, this past weekend they got their first ever mini-marshmallow treat (only a very occasional treat for sugar gliders) and ended up taking this video cause they were just so darn cute enjoying their marshmallows! Love how they hold it in their little tiny hands!

Hope you enjoyed watching this sugar-y cuteness of Critter Corner. Feel free to join in and share your critter tales, adventures and photos and include the tag #CritterCorner. I am a sucker for a animal cute face or a funny animal story!

Introducing Critter Corner

Critter CornerConsidering the majority of my life that seems to revolve around animals. Whether I am wearing my Professional Pet Sitter hat and running around town taking care of everyone else’s animals. Or I am wearing my Critter Mom hat and taking care of my own menagerie of critters. Or even when I have my Photography hat on, chances are pretty good that I have focused my camera lens on the wildlife I manage to find all around me or my own adorable animals.

What can I say? I’m addicted!! Animals make me happy! They bring a smile to my face and lift me up when I am down. I can’t imagine my life without animals. Consequently, I am always a little weary of someone who claims not to like animals?!?! That is just not normal in my opinion! Continue reading
