receive Xinxeta as a present last Christmas. She's nearly the best
present that I've ever received. Because I love animals, I have enough
patience every day to play with her hours and hours to win her
confidence. At first, she was very independent and she didn't come to
me, but now she is more affectionate with me and with other people.
Every day she surprises me with different things. She likes jumping in
my bed and she stays in the pillow, but also she pisses in the bed's
bottom sometimes - No, No Xinxeta!
My father doesn't like Xinxeta. He says that she is like a rat, so, he
calls her rat! It's funny when my father goes to his room and Xinxeta
follows behind him and enters in the room. My father starts shouting:
"Montse, come here and take away that rat from my room!!" Xinxeta has
strange powers, she can be in any room of the house, but when she knows
that my father goes to his room, she appears and goes behind him! It's so
funny! She doesn't care what he calls her!
Also she climbs the step-ladder, and when she finishes with her sand bath
(she loves it) and I have to sweep, she goes behind the broom. I like
what she does when she is having her bath! She looks so happy!
During the day, Xinxeta stays in her cage, but when I arrive home in the
afternoon, I let her to go out and run everywhere. I sit in the floor
with my legs crossed and she comes and jumps in them. She loves eating
raisins, but I only give her three once a day, because it's not healthy for
her. Also she loves peanuts and nuts, but only twice or three times a
week for the same reason!
