About Us
Fizz Gig, the Pet of the Day
Name: Fizz Gig
Age: Two years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Standard Grey Chinchilla
Home: Carter County, Kentucky, USA
   We adopted Fizz Gig from his second owners who had neglected him. He was kept in a dog carrier for 6 months and only let out when the box needed cleaned because the new owner was told by a friend that chins chew everything. Fizz is overweight from lack of exercise and being fed Guinea Pig / Hamster diet instead of Chinchilla pellets. When he got home with us that dog crate went in the dumpster first thing. He now enjoys a nice cage, proper diet and lots of exercise. Fizz's first family loved him and really spent a lot of time with him. He is quickly adapting back to having a couple of willing human slaves to do his bidding.

    He does chinny popcorn dances when he is happy which is all the time now. He loves to climb all over my husband when he is out. He sits on Jon's shoulders and plays with his hair and even gives him little kisses. Fizz Gig loves to shred toilet paper and take the lids from all my perfume bottles and hide them in his cage. I have even found my keys there. We love Fizz Gig and will keep him forever. We are his third home, but also his forever home.
