What's wrong with you?

With the way you're reacting, maybe rehoming her is a good choice.

HATE is an awful strong word.
These things take time and some animals never warm up to people.With that attitude,maybe you should seel/rehome her to someone who is patient and understanding.

I agree with the two above me. You're obviously not giving them enough time, and are rushing them. Chill out.

Feel free to give her to me .

But seriously, sugar gliders can take a long time to bond to people. Maybe try reading this: http://www.sugarglider63.com/bonding.htm

It's important to remember that a sugar glider isn't domestic like a dog, cat, or rabbit. They're wild animals and aren't born wanting to be around people.

Geez, saying you hate them is pretty harsh. I have plenty of pets that will never bond with me or want to be around me(hermies, ACF, millipede, fish) but its because they are wild animals, and by the sounds of it, suger gliders are they same way.
I hope that you can just accept your sugar glader the way she is and be more patient with her. She is your responsibility, and its pretty sad that you would just throw her out like that.

It really sounds like you did not research these animals carefully, but got them because you thought they were cute toys.

I thought this person was a troll without meaning to be and obviously has no respect for animals but then I read the tags and they pretty much sound horrible

Funny how this person asked for our suggestions, but never came back!! Think they just wanted to get everyone in an uproar?

Exclamation Thanks for nothing....

Stephanie was the only helpful one. Everyone else just bashes. First off, I write my letter the way I did to show the frustration I have in order get some feedback that would be helpful. Don't say I don't have any respect for animals. If that was the case then I wouldn't feed her. I respect her just as much, or even more, than she respects me. If you say I didn't do enough research than you are completely and totally wrong. You can come to my apartment and look at the stacks of papers I have AND on top of that I had some of my own time with another sugar glider before I got mine. Now, I hate(yes HATE) people who assume and have no idea what they are talking about. I joined this website to get some advice and positive feedback and none of you are doing this for me and it was obviouslly a bad idea to join this site. Not only are you ruining things for yourself by not helping others but you're hurting my sugar glider and my relationship with her because you don't ave ANY(NONE) good advice to give at all! Rather than confront the problem I have and help me out with it, you just go ahead and run to the easier route by saying "rehome" her blah blah blah.....
