Laila, the Pet of the Day
Name: Laila
Age: Three months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Chinchilla
Home: Johnson City, Tennessee, USA
   Laila was born on January 2nd, 2011. She was from a litter of two. Her mother died during birth, leaving her and her brother (who soon passed) all alone. I tried to foster her with another mother but she was attacked. An abscess began forming on her head which required a ton of cleaning, vet work, and love. I had to hand feed her for two months! I tried my hardest to be optimistic, but her head was bad! Well, today, she is my spoiled brat! You can barely tell anything happened. She has fully recovered and she knows she always gets her way. I love Laila! <3

    Laila is almost always with me! She'll sit on my lap and watch tv or watch me play video games. If she is in the cage she will hold on to the bars and "cry," and then I of course have to let her out! She is very mellow. She doesn't run around much, never jumps off of the couch/bed. When she dusts, though, man the dust is flying! She has a big round belly, so sometimes she gets stuck on her back! She's definitely my spoiled rotten brat!

    We threw her a big birthday party yesterday with tons of apple sticks and new fleece items. I also want to express my thanks to the members of Chins & Hedgies forum for their support, advice and kind words.

    Laila has a video on YouTube Laila the Miracle Chinnie showing her past injuries and her current health.
