Chilly Bean, the Pet of the Day
Name: Chilly Bean
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Chinchilla
Home: Pennsylvania, USA
   Chilly Bean is such a cute little guy. Chilly came to me, at six months old, because my brother's less than intelligent when it comes to animals. He bought him from Petco for his six-year-old twins... Obviously that didn't work. Chins are not good pets for rough little children, so naturally he passed him onto me. While he did get a cage and food, I had to buy everything else. Stocking up on chin supplies all at once is expensive(especially since I bought a new cage) and I was less than pleased about it, but it was worth it.

    He really is the sweetest little guy. While he may not be cuddly, he enjoys hanging out on my shoulder and climbing on me during play time. He absolutely hates being picked up, but will occasionally jump into my arms himself if he feels like it. Any attempt to pick him up leads to a few kecks and a death stare. Scratches are perfectly okay ... in fact, he loves them. He also loves pear and apple wood, so he always has plenty of that. He doesn't care for loofahs and he will shred finger traps in no time. His fleece covered PVC pipe is his favorite place to nap, though you can often find him on top of his house. Not in it, on top of it. I don't think he got the memo that that's not what the house is for.

    His pillow is probably his favorite toy. He will drag it around and prop it up, just to tackle it and wrestle it a little. Then he repeats the process ... It's so cute I can hardly handle it.

    He has so much personality and I'm so happy to have him. Even if he wakes me up and gives me an attitude, I know he loves me and I love him.
