Random Rant #22 – Blind Glider Cage

Some tips for setting up a blind glider cage:

Shorten fall distances with bridges, platforms, and tenax mesh.

Have a canopy over exercise toys to break falls.

Bells near water, food, exercise, and sleeping pouches.

Toys and treat cups near firmly attached bridges and hammocks. DCNs are particularly nice for this with their many plates and easy-to-climb horizontal bars.

I used to keep the cage layout the same as our blind glider adjusted to her vision loss, but once she was able to navigate the playroom well I no longer saw the need to be stringent with the cage setup. Now she is very competent at getting around and exploring, but it took many months of adjustment.
