Letting my sugars run around free

I am new to having gliders. I absolutely adore them. Bonnie and Clyde. I spoil them rotten. I cook and create various meals each night and they are eating well. They get quite a great variety. I make sure that the meals are proportionate and they get what they need diet wise. I research each day and I am doing it all correctly obviously. They eat well and at a perfect weight. The diet is actually not my concern. It is letting them out of the cage. We do let them out but as soon as I lose sight, I freak out!!! There are so many places for them to hide. How do I deal with this? They have a very large cage and keep very active. However, I know that I should let them out. They are both attached to my husband and myself but I still have this fear they will get hurt!! Any suggestions? Am I being paranoid?

Most folks will get a play tent. You make sure it has a solid bottom and can close up fully. The size is your choice. Many like the quick pop-up style so they can store easily and many also just assemble a large tent and keep it up. A well-sized tent also allows you to go inside and begin to interface with the critters. This allows them to jump to and from you and get familiar with you.

Here are a couple to look at:

I have never let my loose in the house. They are like toddlers on steroids and accidents happen. I play with mine in a genji tent or a glider safe bathroom! Have fun, sounds like you are enjoying your babies :D
