On This Date

On August 31st, 2013, Sonar, the last of our sugar gliders, spent his final morning in The Bird & Exotic Clinic. It had to be done.

Sonar, the rule-breaker, chose me to bond to.

Sonar was the only one of our sugar gliders to get stuck on a wall map.

Sonar was the only one to decide that jumping on a fly strip would be a good idea.

Sonar was the only sugar glider to be given a bath. (Also, the only one to ever need one.)

Sonar was the one who ate food only because he needed to.

We still tell stories of our sugar gliders’ exploits.

It’s a melancholy evening in our apartment.
