Any one else pick up the new Critters magazine?

The one with the FANTASTIC article by our own Karin right towards the front!!?? (was it page 6, Karin? I don't have it here by me!)

I thought you did a GREAT job of explaining the pros and cons of glider ownership, and where to obtain a glider, and glider care.

NICE article! I'm so proud of you!!!

Thank you! Writing that was one of the hardest things I have ever done, but I was bound and determined. I wanted to let people know if you choose to be owned by a glider, it's not easy. (Some of you may recognize some subtle hints to owners whose gliders were not internet purchased smile in hopes they would do a little more research from what they were told). Did you catch that?

I caught it, Karin. I thought the article was very, very gracious. It was respectful and honest, and you very politely encouraged people to get help if they bought, for example, at a flea market or mall kiosk.

Really a fine job, Karin!

I'm sorry it took me so long to comment on it! I've actually had the article since the weekend of the SGGA - but I wanted to wait to post about it until people came back and settled in a bit.

I *think* it is the Critters Annual Vet Guide issue, also - which is a bonus!

clap That means a lot to me. During editing the only thing they wanted me to change was the diet info ie: be specific. I told them I could not/would not do that at this point in time. My hope is, for those who do not research, it will encourage them to do so. And, to think twice about getting a glider as a *hamster* kinda of pet. Ok, 'nuf said now. smile

I was told that it may be released international, but quite honestly, I wasn't paying attention lol. The magazine is usually available at any pet store. Since it is released annually, it should be available for a long time.

I'm not sure if anyone's already posted this, but I just wanted to congratulate Karin Leonhardt on her sugar glider article in CrittersUSA 2011 Magazine. When I heard you Karin had an article in there, I just had to get it....so we just got a shipment in & I just got them put into our online store. So excited! Karin talks about what sugar gliders are & some of the pros & cons of having them as pets. In this edition, there are also specific articles on degus, rabbits, ferrets, gerbils, guinea pigs, skunks, chinchillas, hairless rats, hamsters, hedgehogs, flying squirrels, climate controlled enclosures, and more. All of these fun articles are making me want more critters! LOL!

clap Way To Go Karin! clap

hee hee, looks like you'll be famous for the next year or so! roflmao

Must remember to buy one at Farm and Fleet. I keep forgetting to look for them, I got distracted by the baby/toddler clothes last time I was in there. LOL

For those of you who dont have a copy, you dont need to run out and get one, just go to Misty's store online and order one...she has fast shipping and it will save on the gas and trying to hunt one down!!

Don't be embarrassed, Karin. You did a great thing for gliders by writing that article. And now you're like a "local" celebrity. OOH....can I get you to autograph my copy? Hehe.

Thanks for posting my link Peggy. Whether you guys pick one up from me or a local pet store, I do hope you'll support Karin & this publication by getting a copy. There really are some neat articles in there & some cool pictures of different critters.

Megan, if you end up ordering a calendar, you could nab a magazine at the same time to save on shipping....OR (gotta keep trying to nudge you) you could just come to our glider gathering & check it out then. wink

Thanks for posting the link to the other thread, Alden. I hadn't seen that.

Congratulations Karin! I haven't seen it in person yet, but I guess I might have to order one from Misty, cause I haven't seen it in the PetSmart where I work yet? dunno

Re: CrittersUSA 2011 Magazine - 09/20/10 08:50 PM

Oh look, my topic got merged. Thanks. Sari, it just came out in August...maybe your PetSmart just doesn't have them yet? Or maybe they have some left from last year that they're trying to sell out of? dunno I have 25 copies if you need one. wink
