Kirby, the Pet of the Day
Name: Kirby
Age: Eight months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Chinchilla
Home: Pulaski, New York, USA
   Kirby is a very special pet to us. We rescued him from a broken home where he wasn't taken care of. Chinchillas are animals that need love and care - and the right kind of environment and food. Now that he is here and can run around when we let him out, he is so happy.

    He loves to be petted, especially behind his ears and on his belly. He is so much happier here than he was at the other house. He also like to play a game called "Ready, go!" This is when Kirby is on the top layer of his cage and he is in a stance like he is getting ready to jet to another part of his cage. If we get down toward the bottom of the cage and tap the side of the cage and say, "ready, go!", Kirby runs so fast to get us at the bottom. It is so cute! Kirby is so cute, and it is a wonderful thing to see him being a happy, healthy chinchilla, knowing how he was before we got him. He's the best!
