So I am going to try to make this as short and sweet as I can and hope that if anyone is interested they will message me for more information. I am located in Massachusetts, just as an FYI.
My parents got two gliders about 7 1/2 years ago from the Pocket Pets
people at the mall. They hadn't realized just how much work went into it and eventually they decided the gliders, Ferris and Buelah, would be happier living with my husband and I. We took them in and bonded
and cared for them for a few years in our small condo. In 2016 I miraculously got pregnant after being told it wasn't possible and we scrambled to repurpose our only other bedroom in the condo into a nursery instead of a glider room/office. Our baby arrived in 2017 and we held onto F&B for as long as we could but it was much too hard in our tiny condo with a baby to make everything work. We sold our condo summer of 2018 and my parents took F&B back into their home while we rented a room and searched for a new house in an extremely competitive market. I made sure my mother was set up with their Critter Love HPW diets
and had everything she needed and I was there to check on them regularly.
We FINALLY got a new house and began moving in Labor Day weekend (as in this past labor day two weeks ago - it took a whole year!). Then last Thursday, Sept 12th I got a call from my mom. She and my Dad found Buelah passed away in her glider kitchen early in the morning. No sign of injury, no illness. She was still spunky and playing fine the night before. We don't know what happened and I am crushed. I was relying on their little companionship to carry us a bit as we now have a 2 year old who keeps us busy all night and 2 commutes in opposite directions, life is too hectic for us to give them the attention they need and we hoped they could at least keep each other company between our pop-ins. We are still unpacking boxes and trying to get situated and now in the midst of all of it we are doing our best to find a new home for Ferris, one that has time for him to adjust. It makes me so sad because Ferry is a sweet little guy and I will sincerely miss him but I want more for him, he can't just sit around without Bue Bue waiting for someone to come by and scratch his head and give him a little love or entertainment. We are so sad to lose Buelah and it would crush us for Ferris to spend the rest of his life sitting in a cage bored without her.
I have lurked on here reading posts for years but I am not one to have much of an online presence so I don't really say much. That being said I do know this is the only place I want to reach out because I don't trust Craigslist or a shelter. It is extremely important to us that Ferris goes to an experienced Glider owner please, I really need to know he will be ok and I hope that he can make new buddies. I would also like someone who is willing to send me photos and updates, at least for a while, my husband and I want to know he's doing well.
If you have any questions, please feel free to message me.
Thanks for reading,
