Default Any chinchilla owners here? "Pic"

Here's Cinda my chinchilla, not sure if I ever introduced her on this forum or not but here she is!

Playing you can't get me out of my dust bath house!


How cute am I?

That's so awesome! Does Balou bark at all? Cinda does when she is feeling left out or when the puppy barks at her!

Nope, I've never heard Balou bark, but he does do a chittering noise when I am spending more time on my homework than on him . He will also grab my homework sheets and go flying away with them, lol, a lot of my papers go back to school with little teeth marks in them .

I'm a chin owner too!

Right now I have a 3 1/2 year old female mosaic named Scout. I previously had a male hetero beige named Smokie, but he passed a year and a half ago.

Here's Scoutie:






Back when she was small.


She barks at Nikki, who absolutely adores her. She loves the dogs and loves to hang out downstairs. She's spoiled. She's got two cages in the house. One upstairs and one downstairs so she can be with everyone else. They're such cool creatures.

Scout is beautiful! Glad to hear Cinda is not the only one who barks back at the dogs. I rescued her from a feed store. She had been there forever at least 6-8 months in a tiny cage. I didn't know anything about them but she was breaking my heart so I had to give her a home. I got home and did my research and was astounded to hear how long their life span is! Not that I mind how long it is at all, that's fantastic but I was used to dealing with bunnies and they are only around 5-7, hopefully longer.

Good to see some other Chin owners here!

Yep, my friend has a Chinchilla named Fuzzy who is a black velvet that she got when we were in fourth grade. He was the first chinchilla I had ever seen and prompted me to get Scout. He's now... 10 years old (?). I have another friend with an 18 year old standard male.

I almost got a Chin, but knew I wasn't going to be able to take it to college with me, so I got a guinea pig instead. He died of old age my first semester, so the timing worked out in a morbid fashion.
