Water Bottle Blues <BR>By:Reg-X<P>I came home tonight and found my female glider (Luna) dead. It was so sad, I can't possibly begin to describe how upsetting it is to find <BR>a cute little glider lying stiff and lifeless in the bottom of their cage. <BR>I am a programmer and work insane hours.<BR>After working for 32 hours I came home to find that my gliders had knocked the water bottle off the cage. I have no idea exactly<BR>when the water bottle fell off the cage, but<BR>the time I was gone was long enough for Luna to fataly dehydrate. My male glider Hermes was extremely dehydrated as well, but I was able to nurse him back to health. <BR>If you plan to be away from your little friends at all, make sure you purchase a water bottle that securely fastens to the cage. I thought mine was, but obviously it<BR>wasn't secure enough. <P>

aww..taht is so sad. i had something similar happen. i had gotten a glider pair, and my feale was never active, teh next few days i called teh breeder whom i had gotten tehm from, and he convinced me it was because she was pregnant. i want to stay at a friends house for a day, and they have a pretty big water dish, and it is always still full form every nite when i give it to them, so i figured she was ok. she must have spilled the waterbowl, and when i came ome she was dead []http://www.sugarglider.net/ubb/sad.gif[/]. i had an otopsy done, and it showed she had been sick for months befor i had even gotten her, but the no water for a day had pushed her past her limit. teh male was fine, not even dehidtated, thank god! it was a trama to me, i felt so bad even thouhg teh docter told me it wasnt my fault. <BR>Watch out for your little ones!!<BR>thanx for listening!!<BR>Cassie and Lonely Linus...<BR>p.s. this was in memory of Lucy, hope you guys can prevent this from happening!!

So sorry to hear of your loss John. I know what it is to lose a sweet glider []http://www.sugarglider.net/ubb/sad.gif[/] That may be a good idea from Erin to have an extra water bottle. I think I will get a couple just in case and keep in their cage.<p>[This message has been edited by Tessa (edited 01-20-2001).]
