Ok I went to the fair looking to find Mike McGarth and found Pocket Pets.

I talked 4 people out of buying suggies jump . I have been handing out local info to the people that did buy. I have got to redo my pappers.

I have been so good today. I didn't get thrown out or go to jail. jump

They have 5 guys and 2 girls doing the vending. You have to buy their cages which are 3ft X 2ft a wodent wheel and I don't know yet if they have the gaurds on them. (just thought of it) Glida-vims, Pellet glider food X-small water bottle Heat ROCK. You get a zippered bonding pouch.

Did you know they don't need pouchs to sleep in?
They are telling people to put their dirty t-shirts in around the heat rock and that is where they will sleep.

The joeys I have seen with my eyes look to be 6 weeks but I did see one that was smaller. Their adults are orange brown. I asked why the joeys are gray but the adults are brown. They change color was their reply.The adults are between 3 and 5 years old Have skinny tails and slender body's most likely around 80 grams. I was their for 7 hours and those poor gliders where wore out by closing time and would fall asleep in peoples hands. They keep getting them out to show people how cute they are and making them jump back. Not one time did I see anybody wash their hands.

This makes me cry. I'm so sad for these guys, and I hate it! Did they have food or water there for the gliders?

I saw with my eyes 30 yes I counted them 30 male joeys in one cage. They said they are nuetered. I have not got to see the cage with the girls yet they have a pretty colorful cover over their cages so people can not see them until they get to pick one out.

I have to leave so I can catch my breath and take a break for my nerves sake. But I have seen them sell to 4 different people and some are buying 2 in one hour. So far that is 6 a hour at 389.00 for the first w/cage and 200.00 for the second glider.

I am going to work on my paper work tonight so if you have ideas let me know tonight so I can have it finished by morning so I can hand them out tommrow.

I had forgot to put their diet down and some other stuff. My first papper was just local info of vets and breeder phone numbers and of course GC's web address. I really was not prepaired for Pocket Pet. I thought it was going to be Mike McGarth. I also did not know I would be able to handle it as far as not wanting to explode. I am really proud that I am able to hold it together and try to help the ones that do get sold.

On their own pamlet they state word for word

" For over 7 years now, the 'pros' at PocketPets have had the privilege of intrducing literally tens-of-thousands of Sugar Gliders into families all across the United States."

Michelle do you want help? PM me and let me know I'll be happy to come out there and help hand out pamphlets, talk to people whatever you think we need to do. I'm in Midwest City so I could be there in about an hour. Has anyone told Anita, Oh Lord I can see her face now. But let me know, I would love to help.

The way I am doing it is sneaky and when they get busy.

They at times can not wait on everybody and the ones I hear talking about getting one I simply say their are local breeders almost every where to look them up on the web and that they only cost 150 from the locals. Ok now before you jump me. I am at least getting these people to stop and think about it and not doing a impluse buy. In my book that is GOOD.

I can not stand their and hand out the pamphlets in front of the people. I follow the ones that have bought them and just simply say if you need help with your pet here are some web sites and some phone numbers to call. I do not want anybody going back and telling the people what I am doing so that I get thrown out. I am nice to everybody and have been able to keep my cool so far.

I would love help from anybody as long as they do not cause a scene. In my book I can't save them all but I know I saved at least 4 yesterday. If I can save 4 a day that is 40 over the time they will be here.

Here's a suggestion - this is what I had planned on doing. There's an annual flea market in IN that I found out in June was letting (PPP) Perfect Pocket Pets sell, went back a couple of weeks ago and was going to hand stuff out but they weren't there. Anyway, besides information flyers to hand out I also printed out a bunch of the wallet size cards that Amanda1981 has on her signature. They give plenty of info in a small space, then on the back you have the chance to write in your GC name and some other information. I thought they were a little handier than flyers because people would be more inclined to stick them in a purse or wallet. Just a thought...

What do you think of them? I just thought they would be really handy and easier to hold on to - plus good information on both sides.

Ok while taking my bath to get ready I realized I did not save 4 joeys because those 4 will just be sold to someone else. cry

I have to concentraight on the ones that do get sold and that they get proper information for the health of their Suggie.

Oh man this is gonna be a long day. I plan to take my computor with me and try to type as I go. I have to take breaks anyhow and can not just stand their for 7 hours at a time for 10 days.

So if somebody can help pull me through this and help me give the CORRECT info I would be so happy.I do have a printer so I can make flyers. I will try to post 2X's a day. I have got to come home to let my dogs out.

They will start selling again soon actually now. So I have to go with what I have and come back and see what you guys come up with.

Michelle, shame on you! There are 4 fewer buyers. You start multiplying that out. You either have 4 people that are now thinking harder about it and making an informed decision, one way or the other. How many people did you give info to that are now going to research? How many of those gliders did you save? The work you are doing does too matter! hug2

Thank you for helping the uninformed like me. I got mine last week from (PPP) Perfect Pocket Pets and I am finding out mine is WAY to young to be away from her mommy. They never even let me look at the babies to pick one out just asked if i wanted a male or female. they were even going to let my 3 yr old daughter carry her out and I said no way she is too young for that responsibility! give them heck from us in Frederick Md please!

Michelle ~ I'm sure those suggies are thanking you for trying to help them out so they do not end up in a garbage can or being fed cat food. I sense some major good karma coming your way!!

It's great that you are able to provide "real" support to those that did purchase gliders. Good for you for doing what's right, and in a professional manner! Kudos!

Someone local here recently contacted me about a joey, sad they saw them at the county fair in July, but they didn't have $400 for a glider and cage and pelleted food at that time. First thing that popped into my mind was (PPP) Perfect Pocket Pets, but, it ended up being Millermeade Farms tant

If any info I am giving out needs to be deleted somebody please do so. All I want to do at this point is try to get the correct info out to the people buying. So if I post something that is going to cause me trouble get rid of it please. In 5 hours 60 gliders where SOLD.


I got video of the 3 WEEK old joeys they are selling as 8 weeks. I also have video of a completly worn out glider that is just sleeping no matter who has it.

I can not go back into the building after seeing the 3 week old joeys. My heart aches so bad and having REAL chest pain from it. I did file a complaint with the fair grounds. I have not heard back on the complaint yet.

I got pictures of the orange glider and the 3 week old joey.

The only thing I am able to do now is hand out flyers and my phone number. My vet has already heard about the joeys from a fair go'er.

If I can get up more nerve without having a stroke I will try to get more video. My pictures are good and clear and not dark at all. Those that need the video please pm me.

Michelle,

Kudos for doing all that you can! (PPP) Perfect Pocket Pets was at my local county fair in August. That was my introduction to the sugar glider world. Luckily, I am an avid animal lover and decided to do some research on my own before welcoming them into my life. I contacted several breeders who steered me to GC and I am still learning every day that I get on and read, read, read. My first gliders are arriving from Anita on Friday and I can't wait! I wish I lived closer so I could help you guys with the Tulsa fair. Just know that you are doing a great service to the gliders. If anyone is old enough to remember the old Prell comercials - 'and they told two friends and so on and so on'.. Just keep spreading the word and it will work wonders. Almost everyone that I've spoken to about gliders in the past month either knows someone who bought one from (PPP) Perfect Pocket Pets or saw them at our local fair. If the only thing that I do is pass on the GC website, at least I feel that I've done something. Keep up the good fight and bless you!

Is there no way to find out where these folks will be before they get there?

I remember seeing (PPP) Perfect Pocket Pets at a festival around Houston a couple of years ago (3 maybe). It was the first time my daughter and I had ever heard of such an animal and we were soooo tempted!!! Fortunately we did not buy from them ($$$$), I probably would NOT have found GC back then.

Thats awesome girl!!! I am going to print that off and offer it to any of the teens that my daughter shows our gliders to. I know of several teens right now that are intending to ask their parents for a glider as a Christmas gift! This will either help them decide against a glider, or at elast give them some good info to get them started! YOU ROCK!!!
