No, you can't pair them up with another animal. They can and will attack them if they're together. Plus, none of the animals you mentioned climb or glide like a glider, and most of the gliders I've had spend virtually all day up in the air.

Really, your best option is to get him a friend and a bigger cage. I understand that can be expensive, but that's part of owning a pet. It's concerning because if he has any medical issues, they will likely cost way more than another glider and a cage.

If you're still in VA, there's no statewide prohibition on gliders -- there are several active breeders there. [I'm in NC and get rescue gliders in from up there all the time]
