||Three years old|
||San Diego, California, USA|
pleased to introduce myself. My name is Mister Tibbs. I am a extra
dark ebony chinchilla and I originally came from a ranch on the edge of
the Angeles National Forest in Southern California. My first mom was Katy
and she asked my new mom, Annie, to take care of me late last year. I came
complete with a beautiful Ferret Nation 142 cage and my favorite chin spin wheel.
I was born in early 2009 and have always had a very happy life. In
December 2011 I came to live with Annie and my new best friend, Handbag
the Chinchilla. There is also a dog that lives with us and her name is
Mudslide. Mudslide is very nice and doesn't bother me ever.
Handbag is a big star on YouTube and also on Facebook but he sometimes
lets me share my pictures on his Facebook page. While we live in separate
cages, we enjoy each other's company from afar. Whenever I hear him on his
wheel, I go to my wheel and try to run faster and louder.
I love to chew things and my favorite chew toy is a popsicle stick twirly
hanger. I make a big mess when I'm done, but it is fun. I also like my
spinning wheel... very much. While Annie and Mudslide are sleeping, I like
to spin around and get my exercise in the middle of the night.
I also like sticks. My favorite are apple and kiwi sticks. They are
deeeelicious! My mom sometimes gives me a dried rose hip to eat as a treat
or a sugar-free shredded wheat. Mostly I eat hay and Oxbow pellets. I'm a
For fun I like to run around in my chin-safe room and jump all over my
mom. It's a great way to exercise and lot's of fun. Sometimes my mom
carries me around in her sweatshirt pocket... I like that! We also like to
watch TV together but usually I just fall asleep.
I love my life and I hope I live with Annie, Handbag and Mudslide forever.
