Sir Chi Chi, the Pet of the Day
Name: Sir Chi Chi
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Chinchilla
Home: Eastern Iowa, USA
   This is Sir Chi Chi - a TOV Tan (or touch of velvet chocolate ebony) Chinchilla. He was born May 5th, 1999. We live in Eastern Iowa with other chins, gerbils, hamsters, two dogs & two cats. Chi Chi is very special for many reasons. He was born in my first litter of chinchillas, and is not a common color. When the litter was born I was out of town for the day, but when I came home, opened the mothers nursery cage, he bond across the cage to climb the side nearest me and peeked out over the edge. That was it, he was here to stay! He loves to get out of his cage at every opportunity to run about the room or play in an oversized excretes ball. You would think he would want to stay home more as he lives with two lovely ladies, Onyx a Black Velvet and Rue a Golden Mosaic (very dark pinkwhite)!! Soon, I hope that he becomes a daddy, but we love him just the same!
