I'll try and post some new pics tomorrow

Im still a bit confused if you can or can not let them out in public or in my house, do they have to be in the pouch in both instances?
Also meant to add.. do I have to buy two? Ive heard if not it pairs they can be very sad.
No real tips - take it slow, and let the bonding happen at their speed. Feel free to ask me any particulars
The only one I let out in my backyard was Cleo - the mother of all the babies. She and I were the most bonded and she would always come back to me. The other ones I wouldn't trust outside. The twins would be OK sleeping in a sweatshirt, but once they heard a bag crinkle they would be out looking to mooch off whatever you had bought to eat. In your house is fine, as long as the toliet is shut, any real open drains are covered, you're going to keep an eye on them (Mia's favorite thing is playing couch tag). I would just let them out in one room and block off the others. It makes cleaning up their messes a lot easier and to keep an eye on both of them.
Cleo used to be an escape artist, jump up the stairs, and come visit me in my bedroom. It was quite frightening to get woken up by a little fur body jumping on your chest. So be sure your cage is good and wired.
I wouldn't get less than two. When there was five, they were a lot more active. Someday, I'd love to get more again.
