||Eight months old|
||Silver Spring, Maryland, USA|
is our chinchilla Shnouche a.k.a. Mr. Shoe. He is an eight-month-old standard
gray boy and we have had him since he was eight weeks old. Mr. Shoe is a special
chinchilla in more ways than one. He is very expressive and never leaves us
wondering what he wants or what he currently disapproves of - which is a lot
and may or may not involve angrily throwing cheerios my way. Lucky for us, he
is generally a very relaxed and sweet guy. Whenever one of us feels down, Mr.
Shoe never fails to be extra cuddly and talkative to cheer us up.
We recently got Mr. Shoe a little buddy who we are looking forward to
introducing to him soon. For the time being he doesn't seem exactly thrilled
but I think he realizing that there are enough cheerios for everyone.
His favorite things to do are laying stretched out in his cloth tunnel.
cuddling up with his pillows or sitting at the very edge of his fleece tunnel,
sticking his feet out for a breeze of air.
We are so lucky to have him and can't wait to see how things develop with his
little "brother" once they are introduced.
