||One year old|
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.
