Sugar Gliders As Pets

They are undeniably adorable, but require careful consideration.

1. It all starts when you see this little guy on the internet.

2. You’re all:

5. They fit in the palm of your hand.

6. And FLY!

Well, more like jump and glide.

7. It’s like having your own squirrel.

8. You can put them in your pocket.

11. Give them tiny snacks!

12. Place them on small objects.

14. That’s it, you’re buying a sugar glider.

16. You read about them on wikipedia, but ignore the cons and decide cuteness overpowers all.

17. You do a search on craigslist and arrange to meet with the seller.

18. Congratulations, you’ve done it.

19. You’re so excited.

20. You can’t wait to do this:

22. But your new pet isn’t very friendly. Google says they take a long time to build trust.

Side note: Sugar Gliders are much better in pairs.

23. OUCH, that little bugger can bite.

24. And OMG what is that smell?!

25. Seriously, why is this thing so messy?

26. Yep, it just peed on you.

27. WTF was that noise?!

29. You just want to sleep and this nocturnal demon seed is making a ruckus.

30. It wants all your attention.

31. But doesn’t trust you yet.

32. It will take time and patience to develop a proper relationship.

33. But you can do it!

34. In the meantime, enjoy the cuteness.

35. And remember to always research the pros and cons BEFORE buying a pet.
