Fluffy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Fluffy
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Chinchilla
Home: Mononaghela, Pennsylvania, USA
   I placed an ad on Craig's List, looking for a chinchilla. A lady contacted me saying she had two she wanted to sell, and after a series of emails I ended up getting both of them, Fluffy was the female. And let me tell you, in the meantime I have ended up with six chinchillas total because I just love my chins so much. I guess they are like potato chips - you can't have just one! At least I can't! Several of them were rescues, and I couldn't leave them where they were. Thankfully my children love them, too!

    Fluffy is by far the most active of all my chins. She runs and runs on her wheel until the vibrations get so strong the things falls off the side of the cage. It's just too funny. She is also sweet, and very soft, and does not mind being picked up, which is a good thing.

    Fluffy is in a cage with the male she came here with, as they seemed already bonded and so I didn't want to upset them by separating them. They have been in their hut a lot the past few weeks and we think that Fluffy just might have some babies come September. We will be keeping an eye on her, and will make a trip to the vet to be sure, and to find out how we should prepare just in case, if there's anything we should do! We love her a lot.
