||One year old|
is special to me because he's always been the most bonded to me of all
my chinchillas - he also rode home in my coat when I went to get him in
fact :) I had 2 other chinchillas at the time. When I saw him I fell in
love with him but I had to wait a couple of weeks to bring him home as
he wasn't weaned yet. I didn't tell my boyfriend about it until I think
the day before I brought him home as I was worried about his reaction.
He said that since I was sneaky in getting another pet that I should call
him 'Sneaker'... so I did :) He was my 3rd chinchilla and since then I
have gotten a fourth. They are sooo cute I can't resist :)
He's got a very cute look and a wonderful
personality - cuddly too :) Chinchillas in general have a very soft coat
but they need regular dust baths to keep it clean. He is what you'd call
a silver mosaic in colour - white with grey hairs evenly dispersed within
the white - one parent white and one parent standard grey. I think
chinchillas are very entertaining as pets as it's fun to watch their
antics running about the cage - they generally require a multilevel cage
or something with shelves they can hop up to. If you want them to run loose
a very safe place is usually the bathroom as in general there are no wires
as hazards or less things they can chew on due to tile floor. He definitely
loves his raisins (as practically all chinchillas do),he likes running on
his wheel,and he likes to be 'babied' by me.
