Binky, the Pet of the Day
Name: Binky
Age: Four months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Chinchilla
Home: Mississippi, USA
   I am a hetero beige female chinchilla, I am four months old and I love for my mother to turn her back to get me a raisin so I can jump out of my cage to run through the house looking for something to nibble on!

    Binky is special to me because she was a rescue, I went into a pet shop just to get bird food and noticed Binky sitting in the corner of the cage and she had a skin fungus that the pet shop did not even know she had and they had all the wrong foods in her cage, like hamster food and lots of broccoli. Chins are not supposed to have green veggies! So I felt sorry for her and purchased her and off to the vet we went and now after 1 month with her she is a healthy baby chinchilla and the sweetest little girl you could ask for. She is a Houdini, what I mean by that is she can unlock her cage and enjoy herself while I'm away and not tear up anything like normal chins might do. I think it's because she does not want to upset mama!!! I love my Binky Boo - we were meant to find one another for sure!!! Oh and something else to add is that she can jump four feet high, she can run on her wheel for hours at a time and still have the energy to give mama hugs!
