Poohcci, the Pet of the Day
Name: Poohcci
Age: One year old
Gender: Female
Kind: Mosaic Chinchilla
Home: San Francisco, California, USA
   This is my one-year old Poohcci. Happy Valentine's Day, my adorable girl Poohcci! She looks like a bear so I call her Pooh Bear sometimes. Poohcci has the nicest fur and the tip of her tail is white so it makes her appearance really unique.

    I got Poohcci half a year after I got my first girl, Chynchi. Poohcci gets along really well with her friend Chynchi. Since they are so close to each other, I like to think of them as siblings.

    Poohcci is a bit shy but she is very well-mannered. She doesn't just take any food given to her. When you give her a rose hip, which is her favorite, she will just slowly take it away from you and eat it slowly and quietly.

    Poohcci is a selfless girl and very laid-back. She does not care if she takes the first bite of the fresh hay. She will eat the leftover her sister leaves behind. She will eat the bits and pieces of a bagel her sister leaves on the floor. She will let her sister sleep inside the tube and she will just sleep outside to accompany her. What a sweet girl she is! She is also a good athlete. She can run really fast on her chin spin for a whole minute. Then she goes to eat a couple of pellets, takes a sip of water, and runs some more. How cute!

    Poohcci performs the cutest ritual every night. She puts her tiny hands on a lava ledge, stands in front of it and meditates for about half an hour! What is she thinking??

    Every so often, I will catch Poohcci and Chynchi grooming and kissing each other. They also sleep together and love to snuggle especially when it's cold. Poohcci is always affectionate and caring towards her sister, and I'm sure Chynchi is very glad to have such an adorable buddy for the joyful days to come, especially on such a special day like Valentine's Day!
