Banzai is a Standard Grey Chinchilla and lives in an expensive ferret
cage that's taller than me!
Chiku is my best friend. He was rescued from a pelt farm by a breeder and then
I bought him from the pet store she supplied him to. He chose me and would
yell at me every time I walked into the pet store to visit my friend the owner
of the shop. So finally I went over to say hi to him, and he started
nuzzling and licking my hand and that's when I knew I had to take him home. He
has a gold hoop earring in his ear to replace the pelt farm tag - I think it
Chiku is special in the fact that he's such a sweetheart despite where he came
from. He'd never bite anyone and loves cuddles. He's smart, lovable and oh so
sweet. He loves attention and snuggles, and he likes candy. His favorite treat
is strawberry pocky - and he really likes it when I break it up and hide it in
small cardboard candy boxes.
Him and I watch tv together and we cuddle - he especially loves old cartoons
and so do I! He likes to ride around in the hood of my sweater and visit
people. He enjoys hiding (because you can't tell he's in there) and then
startling people by leaping onto my shoulder then going back into the hood!
People are always like "what was that?" then I have to take him out and show
them and he gets lots of attention, so I'm sure he does it purposely. He's
also really protective of me and will yell at anyone that gets too close to
me, but he won't bite though. He also has his own facebook profile.
