My thoughts on life

February 8, 2005


YAY!!! I got my new chinchilla! I’ve decided to name her Bella. She’s petite and a solid gray. She makes Rooster look enormous and almost colorful. I’ll post pictures soon. I put her cage next to Rooster’s and he has spent every second since trying to get near her. She’s still getting used to her new home (which thankfully arrived while Ethan and I were out getting Bella). It’s not as extravagant as Rooster’s mammoth ‘kitten’ cage, but then she’s only about half the size of Rooster, so it all makes sense. Chinchillas are the most amazing creatures. They are like giant mice that don’t smell and have heaps of personality. They even apparently have preferred petting spots. I almost can’t stand the cuteness.
