Sugar gliders are tiny nocturnal marsupials who, in the wild, live in trees in large colonies, foraging for sap and frolicking with family members. But some are bred in hellish facilities similar to puppy mills—then, they’re peddled like trinkets at malls, fairs, festivals, and conventions, where they’re bought on a whim. Confined to cages, roughly handled, fed improper diets, and neglected when the novelty wears off, sugar gliders are doomed from the moment they’re born into captivity.

Upon learning that Cleveland’s I-X Christmas Connection (an event at which vendors marketed their goods during the holidays) hosted Pocket Pets—a traveling company that sells these animals—PETA implored event organizers to do away with this kiosk, but apparently, to no avail. We need your help today!

Please ask I-X Christmas Connection organizers to do the right thing and keep Pocket Pets out of their future events—then, forward this alert to everyone you know.

Since when do sugar gliders make good pets? If you want a pet, go to a shelter and adopt a cat or dog. Or bunny.

Noted, forwarded, mail sent and shared ultra-liberally across four networks!! A few years ago sugar gliders were being billed and sold as super pets, my late wife and myself went over to a friends that was selling them and were looking at one, he took out of cage and it flew across the room, stuck to his expensive drapes and peed-from what I could see it didnt look like an ideal pet to me!!Thanks for posting, Cher!!
