||One year old|
is my pet chipmunk and he is a wonderful animal. I saw this
little baby chipmunk at my friend's house (they had him from the
beginning) and she did not have time for him so I bought him. The
first months with Harry were very hard because I did not have any
information about chipmunks. On the internet I found some information
but mostly on wild chipmunks, so our website tries to give more
information on chipmunks.
When I bought Harry he was about three months old and he was very shy
to begin with. He would hide himself when I came near him. But after
a couple of months he started to get used to coming to my hand for
food reward. And after a time he would come when I called after him
then he came and climbed on my shoulder. He has always been curious
on what I'm doing and likes to follow me around the apartment. If I
get any new things at home they are all inspected thoroughly.
Chipmunks are very curious animals and it's not hard to tame them if
you have time and patience.
My Harry has new funny ideas every day I can sit and study him for
hours. He is very fond of all sorts of material, especially towels.
When he was little he rolled and jumped in them as if he was a living
bouncing ball. I was surprised over how high he could jump. And
chipmunks are very good climbers and can run 12 km an hour, so
sometimes it can be hard for the eye to follow him. He loves the
camera!!! When the camera is out he does many funny things. So, it is
kind of easy to get photos of him now. I'm going to do more with my
site in the future, new photos and how you can build a cage (have
already started with it) so you are
welcome to see us
in the future if you want.
