Chinchillas have great appeal, like cuddly little "balls of fur". Their exceedingly soft, dense coat has more fur per square inch than any other known mammal!

I love CHINCHILLAS!!!

i had two chinchillas. their names were starsky and hutch. a few days ago, hutch got lost under our playhouse. we finally got him out 2 days ago. he lost a lot of weight but other than that he looked fine. he died last night. i am thinking about getting another one to keep starsky company but im not sure if its a good idea.

I have a male chinchilla named Guvava and he is the cutest little thing. We brought him home last year from a pet shop when he was 8 months old. At first the poor little thing was so scared of everything he just dashed for his purple igloo every time someone just approached the cage. I worked with him every day and now he is the total opposite of what he used to be now when people walk by the cage he hops onto his perch and pokes his nose through the bars of his cage to investigate. If you get close to the cage he'll show off for you by bouncing off the walls of his cage all while he makes these little muttering noises just so he cane be let out or scratched on his fuzzy little head. :)
i love Chinchilas! i have one and his name is Fella. YAY! We have soo UBER MUCH FUN together! he is my little Captain Fella Bo Bella
I have had my Chin for almost a year now and I LOVE HIM! Sometimes he loves being held and other times he would rather be left alone. I spoil him and buy him every Chinny thing I can. He has never bit me. I would love if he could cuddle more, but as I understand, they don't always like to do so. Its so hard not to give him lots of treats because mine will beg and beg for some, but I know they are not good for him so he just gets a few a day. I recommend a Chin for someone who is patient and has no small children as Chins need their rest in the daylight. Mine stays in my room because I am nocturnal as my Chin. Lets save the Chins from being coats!
