    I was at the mall yesterday and saw a line of people waiting to check out a "pocket pet" as the sign described them. This was not a pet store. They were just selling these creatures from a kiosk. I see a lot of abuse coming for these poor things as people buy them for small kids as toys. Or adults who buy them on a whim and just get tired f them like one of those little rc helicopters. I have to say I was disgusted by the whole thing.

    Oh and edit. With a name like "sugar glider" they better keep them away from Richard Gere...:eek:

    Sounds like an illicit operation. Report it to the local SPCA if you can. They need grub worms and tree sap, which I doubt many "owners" would bother to supply them with. Sad and pathetic.

    Has anyone given any thought about the "Pocket Pet" Jumping out of your pocket sounds like a scam.

    A friend's stepsister has a couple. They're pretty cool, and are being well-taken care of by what is basically a pretty irresponsible girl.

    Except, of course, for the time a cat ate one ...
