About Us
Lucy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Lucy
Age: Eight years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Hetero Beige Chinchilla
Home: Bloomington, Indiana, USA
   We recently adopted a new Chinchilla from someone that could no longer take care of her. She is a very sweet eight-year-old Chin that instantly gained our love and affection. We love her so much. A breeder that we associate with took her in and thought of us for full time parents, as she knows our Wally and Orville are happy here.

    Lucy is amazingly sweet. She warmed to us almost instantly. You can tell that she has had a hard life with the bite marks on her ears. We are so happy that we could give her a great home where she will not have to worry about other Chins being territorial with her. She is a bit independent but as soon as she starts to get her scritches and loves she just melts in our hands. That is only fitting since she melts our hears with her cute little curly piggy tail and her speckled ears. She is a blessing to us and we are trying to be the best blessing for her as well.

    I included a picture of her curly tail :-). Like most chinchillas, Lucy likes to bounce to different levels in her cage, so having shelves to do this on is a good thing for them. Also we are pretty sure she is an expecting mother, but only time will tell.
