||Four and a half years old|
we have three chinchillas, Roo is by far the most charming. He
is a little stinker, getting into trouble and trying to escape whenever
he gets a chance! He has no fear and loves to climb to the highest point
possible. In fact, one time he was out running around and my husband
lost track of him. It turns out that Roo managed to climb to the top of
the bathroom door by wedging his back against the wall and pushing his
feet against the door. You can imagine the surprise my husband felt when
he looked up and saw Roo sitting on the top of the door!
Roo also loves to explore! Chinchillas hate being wet; they take baths
in dust rather than water. But little Roo, the monster that he is, has
made his way into the shower and the toilet several times, to his
dismay! He looks so miserable when we are trying to dry him with the
hair dryer! If you are looking for a fun, intelligent pet that will
entertain you, yet is easy to care for, try a chinchilla! If it is
anything like Roo, you will fall in love!
