Maisy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Maisy
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Chinchilla
Home: Israel
   We love Maisy dearly. We got her when she was about four months old. She makes so many different sounds, depending on whether she is happy, sad, having a bad dream or if something hurts her. She even squeaks when she wants us to take her out of her cage. Her nickname is "Eemeets", because it sounds like the squeaky noises she makes.

    Maisy loves to be held by us. When she sees us in the room and wants to come out of the cage, she stands next to her cage door (sometimes with her paw so cutely hanging on the bar!) and waits to be taken out. Maisy also loves to run freely on the floor, even though she sometimes runs under the sofa and it's hard to get her to come out!

    She has a running wheel and sometimes runs very quickly when we try to get her out, because she thinks she can get away from us! Maisy is also very tidy and loves to clean the space under her wheel, where she sometimes hides. Every time we put her back in her cage after cleaning it, the first thing she does is explore and check to make sure everything is exactly where it's supposed to be, and also to see if we gave her any new treats!
