Furball, the Pet of the Day
Name: Furball
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Standard Grey Chinchilla
Home: Altoona, Pennsylvania, USA
   Furball loves to tear around his three-story cage and eat as many raisins as he can get his little paws on. He sleeps most of the day and spends his nights knocking down the ramps in his cage. He likes to sit on our bed and chew on any shiny thing he sees, including my earrings, my boyfriend's earring, etc. Sometimes we think maybe he's seen the Matrix too many times because he loves to run straight up the sides of his cage and leap onto the different levels. When he's eating, he chews his food rather loud, as if to annoy us. When he's taking a drink of water, he stops and takes time to slurp it. Nothing makes him happier than when my boyfriend puts a big handful of hay in his cage. He rolls in it, and acts as if he's too confused on which piece he should eat first. Sometimes he even gets so worn out from all of that deciding, he falls asleep in it. He is quite adorable and so soft. He really is the perfect pet.
