||Eight months old|
||White Mosaic Chinchilla|
||Vacaville, California, USA|
is our eight month old little baby. When we got him he was a fur
chewer, but since coming home he hasn't taken one bite of his coat. His
whiskers were all chewed off and he was such a skittish little guy. He'd
bark and chatter his teeth whenever you got too close. Now, Jasper has
turned into quite the little love bug!
He loves attention, although he'd never admit it. He nuzzles your hand
during scritches and then holds onto it with his little paw if you try and
leave too early! He'll also get your attention by biting down on your
sleeve and pulling your hand in.
His hobbies include, watching TV and snuggling with his older brother
Woodrow, perching on mom's shoulder or head, eating hay and destroying
anything made of wood within reach. He loves to wall surf in his playpen
too. He's recently taken to snuggling with his toys when Woodrow's too
busy. Whether it's a hanging toy, chew stick, blue cloud rock or slice of
loofah, he'll cuddle right up with it.
This little smart guy knows the sound of the treat bag, chew stick drawer
and the jingle of a fresh bowl of pellets. His newest trick is jumping on
mom's head and then crawling down her back to run around the living room!
He still hasn't caught on to mom's crafty dust bath trick though.
