Not By the Hair on My Chinny Chin Chins

Chinchilla: (noun) small furry rodent made of adorable and rainbows originating from Peru, known mainly for their ultra soft hair, but also a darling housepet. I wish to share the charm and personality of my little friends with you.

I’m taking care of my neighbor’s pets this weekend while she visits family for Easter. :3  It’s been a while since I have gotten a chance to care for rats and cats, and these are probably the sweetest ones around.  The cat, Sable, is really talkative so she always is the first to greet me, and then Lucy, the little old lady rat and I will hang out a little together while I let her dishes soak (because she’s aging she has a much more calorie dense diet of things like greek yogurt, veggie mash and fresh produce).  They are darling little creatures.
