What's it like to have a chinchilla?


*** They never need very much, just fresh water and food daily and a little cage cleaning once and a while. In return they will run to greet you when you enter the room, wanting to play or sit on your shoulder while you're on the computer. Running across your papers or stealing your pencil while you do your homework is a favorite of thing of theirs.

*** Become a child again, lay on the floor and let them play with you! They will tickle your nose with their whiskers and comb your hair with their paws. If you're really lucky you'll get 'sugars', too. When they sniff and smell, this is the proper way chins say "Hello", so please, say "Hello" in return in the proper chin manner and they will accept you as a big chin. A most delightful thought!

*** The softness of their fur is only surpassed by the spot in your heart they will make if you will let them come in. A gentle voice and a snuggle close to you is usually all they will need to calm them. Hold them close, but not to tight, for their tiny bones are fragile.

*** Taking the time to learn their personalities is delightful. They will let you know what they want or need in special ways, all you have to do is pay attention and remember. Listen to the sounds they make and where they stand in the cage. Hungry? Some may turn their bowl over and stand on it to let you know it is empty, others may stand beside the bowl with their front paws on it to bring to your attention that the bowl is empty and they are hungry.

*** Each has it's own special place to be rubbed or scratched. Under the chin, behind the ears, on the belly and on the front of the collar bone, are all places I have found they enjoy. The content look on their faces will be evident, as they tilt their head, close their eyes and smile.

*** Bath time is another time to enjoy, just wear a painter's mask! They will flip and turn in their bath dust fast and furiously, flinging dust into the air. This is best done in a room without carpet. For all the mess that is made, it doesn't really seem to matter, because you are still laughing at the hilarious sight of this furry little ball scratching first, then flipping over and over in a pan of dust, shaking it off like a dog, then repeat it, just to shake it off again!

All this joy rapped up inside a little ball of fur called a CHINCHILLA!

The cages used during the making of these movie clips

They are much to small for that.
These are holding/travel cages only.
