||Ten months old|

a lady with my company over a thousand miles away who is solely
responsible for my having chinchillas. Heidi has two of these adorable
guys. She talks about how cute and fun they are and e-mails me pictures.
Now I have two chinchillas, Huffin & Puffin. Puffin was my first
chinchilla love. He makes me laugh and brings me so much joy. I scratch
behind his ears while he chews on my watch band. When I rattle a
container of treats he plasters himself to the cage and sticks his
little nose through until it looks like an anteater's nose. He likes to
pick out his own treat (dried persimmon, dried apple, dried lettuce,
raisins, etc.). Then he holds onto the side of the container so I won't
take it away.
Thanks to a chinchilla lover in Milford, Connecticut, there is a happy
chinchilla lover - and happy chinchillas - in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
