Quinn, the Pet of the Day
Name: Quinn
Age: Five months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Sugar glider
Home: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA
   Quinn is special because she has a very sweet disposition. She always makes me laugh, and she's really entertaining. An overall loveable animal! Quinn is extremely special to me because she is the first sugar glider to come into my life. I've only had her a short time, but she's taught me a lot. It's been a very rewarding experience.

    While driving home from the airport, I opened the crate containing two small sugar glider joeys, my heart swelled up. I tried touching both of them, and I got bit. I noticed the larger of the joeys was protecting the smaller one. Right then I knew that I wanted her. She was the sugar glider for me.

    On rainy days we cuddle up under my blankets, during the day she sleeps over my heart. Sometimes for snacks we share a fruit-juice popsicle or a container of yogurt. Sometimes she gives me little glider kisses. The tiniest thing she does leaves me with the biggest warmest feeling inside. Hiding in a tissue box, playing in an empty paper-towel cardboard tube, and playfully attacking my fingers.

    Because of her, I may own more sugar gliders later on, but Quinn has made an everlasting impression on my life. And has conquered the whole of my heart. As well the heart's of everyone who has met her.
