About Us
Midnight, the Pet of the Day
Name: Midnight
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Chinchilla
Home: Pennsylvania, USA
   Midnight is the brother of one of my chinchillas, and like his brother, was badly abused. He was in a cage with forty other chinchillas, when they should never be in a cage with more than two, and only two if they get along with each other. I felt so sorry for him, and just had to save him, and while his ears show evidence of his former life, we hope he has forgotten all that by now. I do have six chinchillas, only two per cage, and Midnight is the wildest and most energetic of them all. When you go to get him from his cage you really have to chase him. He thinks it's a fun game!

    When he first came to my home he didn't even know how to take a dust bath, which is how chinchillas stay clean, but now he loves it and has a fun time rolling in it, fluffing out his fur, throwing it around and basically having a grand time! He has come so far in the time he has been with us, and guess what? We think he may be a dad sometime in the next few months! Any children he has will never have the hard start he and his brother did, they will be loved and spoiled from the start, we promise! He got his name from his darker coloring on his face, and we love him very much just the way he is.
