V-jai, the Pet of the Day
Name: V-jai
Age: Ten months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Standard Chinchilla
Home: Hatfield, Hertfordshire, United Kingdom
   This is V-jai and he's my second pet. The one(s) I had before were turtles and are now living with my brother and parents. V-jai is completely different, as he's got very soft fur and has got a very cute little face. He was only four months old when I bought him, but I've had him for six months now and I love him. His favorite food are raisins and he always wants loads all the time, but I'm only allowed to five him one a day as it isn't very healthy for him.

    V-jai loves gnawing and chews on absolutely everything I give him and when I let him out to play he chews up every corner he passes. Although it annoys me sometimes, but when I look at him I forgive him straight away. He refuses to be cuddled, because Chinchillas usually don't like being cuddled, but I can't resist it and do hold him in my hands a couple of times a week, and he's kind of used to it. He's so cute!
