Welcome to Cinnamonstix-N-Sugar!

In June of 2007 I joined the wonderful world of sugar gliders and I got my first pair Meeko & Willow. About two months later I ended up getting my second pair, Icarus & Ivy. They were rescues I had found while browsing Craigslist. This meant it was time for a vet visit and double neuter. Just another two short months later I welcomed one more pair into my home. Howie and Gracie are Willow’s parents, whom were rehomed with me because of their owners health. Within two months of arriving here Howie was also neutered. In May 2008 I got a little girl I named Fern to live with Meeko & Willow from a friend of mine and in September of 2008 I got my first special colored glider from the same friend. This little guy we named Nemo and he was the most adorable and needy little leu baby. He was shortly thereafter neutered and he moved in with Meeko, Willow and Fern. Some time much later I took in a trio that another friend of mine had. Their names are Rei, Cjarsa and Syfka. Rei was already neutered so no need for a speedy neuter for once, what a relief. When Fern was about 2 years and 4 months old Willow made the executive decision she no longer wanted Fern to live with her and the boys and became very mean and aggressive with her. I immediately had to move her to a new cage where she was scared and upset. Later that day I let her meet up with the trio, which she had met one other time and they instantly adopted her in as one of their own.

In April 2010 something new began for us! I got my little guy Rafiki. After failing to introduce him to any of my suggies I decided maybe we would instead get him a gorgeous lady I named Rajah and try our hand at breeding. I was already well educated in lineage and had actually hand raised a joey for someone I knew. There was literally nothing to hold me back any longer.The pairing was perfect and when they met they were instant buddies. I could not have found a better match! This was the start of Cinnamonstix-N-Sugar!

I had not intended on getting any more gliders but then in July 2012 one practically fell into my lap. A dear friend brought me a little girl that had been rejected/attacked by her mother. She looked so close to gone, so much skin and wrinkles. My friend knew if anyone could save her I was one of the best bets this little one had. She was very dehydrated and we worked round the clock the first couple days making sure to get her hydrated via feedings and sub’q. It was hard and I had my doubts. Despite her coming with me to work every day and all the feedings and such I tried so hard to not get attached. I think I held out pretty good but raising a joey from 12 days OOP it is far too hard to not get attached. We had so many bumps from losing fur and low/slow weight gains and odd staining but my little princess made it though everything and has blossomed into a gorgeous little mosaic. We have arranged to keep her here named her Princess Lily. Lily lives with another girl who we produced here, my beautiful Mocistic named Opal who just happens to be very close in age to Lily. Also in June 2014 I have an intact solo male named Link that was in very early stages of SM surrendered to me. I had him neutered which was bumpy with his tendency to pick at himself but we pulled through and I was able to introduce him to the first gliders he had gotten to live with in his three year life. Needless to say he is very fat and happy these days and very much in love with his ladies!

In 2014 I decided I wanted to branch out in color production. I had really been wanting a Cremeino and a Platinum so I got a trio that was a male and twin sisters. I was finally able to fulfill more of my glider dreams in getting a Cremeino Mosaic named Tael, TPM named Navi, and a Platinum named Tatl. Their hets have all played together so nicely and they have proved out everything we hoped for and even more when they produced a Pied joey! They have threw me for a loop sometimes and I actually did keep a male named Kristoff Krabbs from them and paired him with a WF Cremeino Het female named Crabby Patty in an attempts to prove out if he was indeed Mosaic or not. He proved out as did her hets which meant another super lucky match!

Currently for breeding gliders I only have one pair and the trio. Rafiki and Rajah have been retired and will live out their lives here as pet only gliders. I love my suggies and breeding has been very exciting. I love how much I am able to socialize and play with them. I hope that my joeys leave here as sweet and loving towards their new owners as they have learned to be with me. I do not intend on expanding my breeding program at this time nor expanding my pet only gliders. Right now we are just enjoying the ones we have and loving each and every one, especially my kids that are getting up there in age. I would love to say that I still have every glider I have named but sadly some have crossed over the rainbow bridge over the years. Glider free and never be forgotten: Fern, Cjarsa, Icarus, Ivy, Howie, Gracie and Syfka. In addition to our suggies we also have our five kitties: Scooby, Swiper, Zero, Dinah and Sykes. You would think they are starved for attention as they are the most needy and spoiled people oriented kitties I have ever met! Never a dull moment around here with all the fur babies and also our Russian Tortoise Vork!
