Abby, the Pet of the Day
Name: Abby
Age: Four years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Chinchilla
Home: New York, New York, USA
   I got Abby from a breeder in New Jersey when she was a little baby. I saw her picture on the breeder's website and it said she was available. I contacted them right away and I got lucky and took her home two weeks later!!

    It took her almost three years to become tame and like me... now when I open the cage door, she jumps on my shoulder every time and sits there for a few minutes. She is affectionate and gives me little kisses when she's on my shoulder. She doesn't like to be held for long but won't squirm when you hold her. She loves to get rosehips and dried hibiscus flowers she also loves, and will talk to me in chinchilla noises for her daily healthy treat when she sees the treat bag coming. At playtime she uses me to jump on and off of and will sit on my lap or shoulder for minutes at a time, then she goes back to playing. I love my little Abby meatball!
