Just Getting Started
In the beginning it can be overwhelming with making sure you get all the proper items for your new pet. There are so many do's and don'ts out there and a lot of bad info, I know it can be hard to decipher it all at first. Below you find find a simplified list of items that you will need before bringing your new babies home.
- Proper diet ingredients (See Nutrition page for a list of approved diets)
- Cage (see Housing page for suggestions on which cage is best)
- At least 2 fleece cage pouches
- Minimum of 3-4 toys,
- Glider safe wheel
- Zippered bonding pouch
- Water bottle
- Food bowl
- Cage cover
Now with all that being said, you will easily spend a minimum of $1000 to properly get set up with a pair of joeys and all the supplies needed to properly take care of them. They are not a cheap or easy pet to care for. The good thing is that if you invest your money into quality items then they will last you a very long time. You can expect to have to replace cage pouches every few months, add new toys so they don't get bored, and continually spend money on diet supplies but everything else should last a good while. Please be sure to check out my Housing and Nutrition pages before you start buying your supplies. There are a lot of unsafe items out there that are marketed for sugar gliders but are not safe for them.
