Well, here he is Internets. This is the very first baby picture of the little guy. His name is Velcro, and in January he will be Mack’s new BFF. I know it isn’t the GREATEST picture, but it was the first time he was ever out of the pouch and being held. I absolutely melted when I saw the picture…. even though it is a little blurry.
No matter what has happened over here lately, I still think that it is a good idea to get Mack a friend. Even though we do tent time almost every night now, he still has eight or so more hours every night where he is playing by himself. There is no way I would ever get rid of Mack… so what is one more Sugar Glider when you already have one? At least that is what I am telling myself.
I am getting Velcro from a different lady, a breeder named Michelle that lives in TN. This isn’t the same one that I talked to before, the one that I considered buying a breeding pair from. I met Michelle right after I met the other lady, and Michelle is FAR more knowledgeable. She has given me so much valuable information, including Mack’s new diet… she sent me the recipe a few weeks ago and Mack has totally been loving it. And he is thriving, he is chubbier and his coat is fluffier than EVER! So, anyway, after a couple conversations with Michelle (actually I think it was 10 e mails back and forth) she decided that I would be a suitable home, and I put down a deposit on a baby. He was born a few days later, and she let me name him. So, I picked the name Velcro, because I think it is adorable, and also I am hoping that he sticks to Mack (and ok, me too) like velcro. I know I didn’t say anything all these weeks, but I wanted to wait until I had a picture of him, before I said anything.
Here are a few more pics from last night’s tent time.
