||Three years old|
is special to me because she is my very first chinchilla. She is
super funny and I guess she has not read the chinchilla rule book. She is
the complete opposite of everything I read about chinchillas. And when I
have a hard day she is always there to sit in my lap and make me feel 100% better.
She is very sociable. Whenever there are new people at the house that she has
never met, she will meet them at the cage. If they place their hands in the
cage she will jump into their hands to be taken out.
She loves the be held and petted. During play time I watch her very
carefully but she has never chewed on anything she isn't suppose to. She
also stays away most of the day time. She sleeps during the night. All of
this is the opposite of what my reading material said.
Also, loud noises doesn't seem to bother her. In fact whenever the baby is
crying or screaming she jumps to the top shelf to see him. If she is out of
her cage and the baby screams she will go to his crib and check him out. She
is super gentle with the kids. They constantly put their fingers in her cage
to pet her. She will either give kisses or turn so they can pet her back. My
friend has five chinchillas and she is nothing like any of them. She is my first
but she is so awesome. I guess we got pick of the litter!
