is Duncan my chinchilla. I have only had him for five months. I bought
him from a family that was moving and did not want him anymore. They had
him in a cage with other males that beat up on him. He had several tears
on his ears, so I rescued him.
Duncan is very hyper and literally bounces off the walls! Two weeks
after I got him he broke his leg. He had to wear a green cast for four
weeks. He thought a green thing was chasing him at first: the leg was
stabilized straight out so he could see it when he ran. I felt so sorry
for him after the rough life he already had. But that's all behind him.
He is all better now and bouncing off the walls again. He loves to run
down into the guinea pig cages and eat hay with them. He is very entertaining.
